About ThinBlueFlorida.com

This website was created to provide useful information to those in Law Enforcement, the Military, and concerned citizens.  The content is based upon my opinions and observations from 29 years of sworn experience as a Patrol Officer, Field Training Officer, SWAT Team Member, SWAT Team Leader, K9 Handler (Patrol, Narcotics, SWAT), Property Crimes Detective, Robbery/Homicide/Sex Crimes Detective, Sergeant, and Lieutenant.  If I go off on a rant about something under my skin, so much the better.  I make no money from this endeavor, it’s just a hobby.

    I have a BG380 and find the slide to be very difficult to retract manually. Is this common? Can the guide spring be changed out? Does it need the attention of S&W CS?

  3. Great posts Randall, I used to live in Florida but now I am staying at PI.
