    That was great. Having been a teenager when this all took place , I remember the buzz. Then as I grew up I also watched the 10mm,9mm 40cal debate. Great to hear a new fresh take on a complex situation that has a lot of impact on the police community as well as us citizens who want defend ourselves and loved ones.
