    Today, I had the opportunity to dispatch an injured doe with the LE Ranger T bonded .45acp that was recommended by a few out there.

    The poor hood rat had broken its neck, but was still trying to run even though its head and neck was actually folded under its body.

    One shot penetrated the the boiler room from about three feet away, and continued right on through its head. So between four layers of fur/skin, a couple of ribs, and a head I was impressed. Much better performance than other .40 S&W and .38 special loads I have used.

    The doe was also impressed, and went very quickly to the field in the sky...

    Hood rat has a really really different meaning where you are.

    Now that you mention it, you are probably right.:whistling:

    I have been sent to dispatch four in the last ten days, it is that time of year here.

    You had the "opportunity to dispatch an injured doe?"

    I don't think that's something others might describe as an "opportunity."

    Odd.

    Perhaps your agency should seek out more proactive dispatchers.:supergrin:

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    I knew an idiot like that. He was a dispatcher who was also a reserve officer with the same agency. While working as a dispatcher one night, he was monitoring a foot pursuit. The suspect happened to be running down the street from the station with the pursuing officer calling out that he was losing the suspect.

    Idiot dispatcher decides he wants to play hero and runs out of the station and joins in the pursuit, leaving his dispatch desk unattended. As idiot was working as a dispatcher. He didn't have a police uniform on and he didn't have a weapon. As a matter of fact, he had on his dispatcher uniform which was a light blue logo'ed polo shirt and black pants. He also didn't catch the bad guy.

    His job as dispatcher and reserve disappeared into the night like the suspect.
