While at the range a few days ago I drew a crowd of off duty LEO's after ripping through a few mags with the toys.

Everything went well! They all knew about the legality of "OLL's" and "bullet buttons," but they had never seen or used a bullet button.

Being the nice guy that I am ;), I gave them a brief demonstration of how the bullet buttons worked (AR, AK, FAL), and then let the three of them try the BB's for themselves. They were all very impressed, and after about 10 minutes of pleasant conversation they went on their way.

Keep up the good work, everyone!

thats the thing. you need LEOs that are interested in seeing for themselves instead of buying the propaganda and confiscating anything resembling an AR.

That is great. I have a actually helped LEO build a few OLL with BB for themselves.

BRD is spreading in the ranks.

Thank you for being a gentleman and a good promoter of preserving our rights.

Hey, we should start handing out prizes to the guys who introduce the most people to the OLL movement, with extra points for converting LEOs.

I'm serious--Calguns should post up reward money for the most (verified) converted. People could donate into a pool of prize money, then the money could be awarded annually or something like that. Not sure how we'd verify the conversion, though...

It is nice to show/remind LEO's that most of the milions of gun owners are very responcible and honest. Helps 'calm the waters' in a way.
Living here in Cali the same applies to most people who have never even shot a gun before. Show them you are safe and that you have fun in a controlled enviroment and they have no grounds to argue.

Funny you say that, when I was helping them put a few together.....they said WTF is this BB.

Told them welcome to CA law and sorry you couldn't get the letter from the department for this one......;)

Ran into an LEO at SJGE he knew nothing about OLL's He left knowing damn near everything. Always good to train the uninformed. It'll make things easier for us in the long run.
