    I just watched the below video. I was impressed, so much so that I believe there should be legislation enacted that requires all law enforcement firearms to be equipped with these cameras should they be found to be reliable after testing, and be found not to interfere with the function of the weapon, by an independent neutral party.

    Saw that when it came out. Wish Walter had absorbed 8 rounds somewhere that he would not have recovered from his wounds though

    Talk about doing everything right when the shit hits the fan.

    Engage
    Create distance and movement.
    Stay in the fight.

    Out phucking standing.

    The only hiccup was the mag change. I dont think he hit the mag release but displayed a perfect mag retrieval and perfect form at eye level. Can't blame him for that little issue as he was shot and fighting for his life and then overcame it.

    Yes, every officer should have body cameras and gun cameras. I firmly believe it will serve to protect the vast majority of the officers from the bullshit response to their actions and the public from the 1 or 2 actual bad officers. It also uniquely puts you in their shoes.

    One thing to mention, how is this camera mounted? If it goes in place of my x300, I’m going to fight like hell and try to not have to have one of them on my gun. Yes the footage is bad ass and a technological advancement but does it impede on the function of the weapon? Now if they could make an HD camera that sits in the end of the guide rod, I’d be all for it. Rail mounts don’t seem to be the answer, but we are close

    Also a lesson to those who think that in these situations they can count on perfect shot placement.

    To paraphrase a commie, sometimes a volume of fire has a precision all its own.

    It is rail mounted and a 500 lumen light is part of the set-up. One is also available with a laser sight.

    They say it comes on automatically when the gun is drawn from the holster, I would hope that means only the camera and not necessarily the light or the laser.
