Getting too old is on a distinguished road

At my first city we had 2 410 shotguns and a 22 rifle that belonged to ACO that we never had to qualify with but were available to us. We also bought some over the counter dog repellant, again, no qualification or certification .

At my second city I had to qualify at the PD range before I had access to a shotgun from the PD armory, and I had to go through PD training/certification for OC and they issued it.

At my 3rd city they recognized my OC certification and issued me a can, but for my officers we bought citronella spray. We didn't have access to firearms.

Per Texas law and ACO has to be certified to use a "bite stick"
There are no problems, only challenges and opportunities.
