Unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at it, being a veteran cop most of my shooting is pistol obviously because it is our side arm carry and first defense alternative. That being said, I have always been a believer that the pistol was made to fight your way to a long gun or carbine to finish the fight.
I am a Firearms Master Instructor for our agency so I am fortunate enough to have the ability to shoot as much as I want, this includes the Colt AR15, and Remmington 870.
