Well not much to tell here. We started with folding stock mni-14s. These were semi auto only and were a step up from the 870 shotgun. We had just had three troopers killed for no other reason than the bad guys had rifles and we did not. Then the department went to Colt AR-15s. 16" pencil barrel and collapsible stocks. Huge improvement in accuracy. Bought mine when I retired.
