    Yep, cone is off. Doc said the dye stuff didn't show anymore abcess on his eye, so it seems he didn't lose any vision. He's back to normal and very happy to be coneless; little female pup seems surprised she can't sneak up under his cone any more when they play. She had an unfair advantage for a while there and it really frustrated him when she'd bite (playfully) at his neck behind the cone where he couldn't get to her. :laughing:

    Sniper team Two's pictures got lost but about the same .

    The only problem I had moving them to pistols ... yeah they really like the Sig 40 and the Colt CE 45 problem is they are MINE!!! LOL Though, the youngest has her eye on a Hi Power 9mm again MINE!!! . I told them buy their own lol though they both have Walther p22 ( would not recommend them) they are ammo picky and a PITA to break down and clean but were cheaper then the Buck Marks to learn with and they now have those and 10/22s . The youngest is scary good with her Buck Mark.

    :pccoffee: Good morning.

    This exactly. Several years ago I was involved in a search for a missing child, (runaway). A State Police dog walked past the yard where the child had hidden under a deck without alerting his handler. Or if the dog did show any indication the child was there, the handler didn't pick up on it. Later that night, a SAR dog, off lead found the child. I learned a lot about SAR because of that incident. We developed new protocols for SAR in our County because of it. LE and SAR canines definitely have different skill sets.

    Yea we're opposites. Wife didn't grow up around guns. Grandpa was a trapper government and private.
    I traded my crossbow for a walther p22. 10yrs ago. I haven't had a problem with it and ss learned on it. I tried to let him shoot the barrell off but its still in good shape. I feel its easier than my Kimber uc2 .45 t other tear down. Idk.

    Maybe too much recoil on the .38? The lightweights aren't easy to control at that caliber, especially for a woman. I got my wife a Charter Arms .22 mag that she handles fairly well.

    Yeah there has been lots of discussion about why the difference even though they both work scent. One suggestion proffered is who LE K-9 tracks are running scared IE fear scent, the lost adults if they have medical issues are not afraid so their track is not as enticing to an LE K-9. A lost child yes will emit fear scent but only when they realize they are lost. Now a regular adult who realizes they are lost may or may not emit fear depending on a lot of factors even when they finally stop and sit still the scent pool should be enticing and is sometimes. Folks who know a lot more then I do about it still argue about it lol :} http://animals.howstuffworks.com/29038-a-dogs-life-dogs-sense-of-smell-video.htm

    This is very true. Reminds me of those titanium 44 magnums that came out a while back. Sounded like a great idea for a hunting sidearm up here because how heavy the full steel models are; I knew a few guys who bought them, but no one I know really liked them because they were too light for the kind of heavy bear loads required/desired. I admit I don't like carrying my 44 Redhawk, I'd just as soon shoulder sling my 870 with rifled slug barrel than carry that heavy ass pistol. Matter of fact, given the option, that's what I do more often than not.

    I didn't know that part of it. One of the things a very highly experienced SAR person told me was the way the dogs are trained and handled. SAR dogs are trained to work off lead and there's little fear of them hurting the victim. LE dogs obviously have the need to act aggressively if needed and work on lead a lot of the time. With an LE dog, the skill of the handler comes into play much more than a SAR dog. And LE dogs a lot of times are expected to perform various duties, while SAR dogs are trained specifically for search. I also didn't realize until that search that there are specific SAR dogs for cadaver searches as well as drowning victim searches. Thank God we called in the SAR team for that search, it's quite possible we would not have found that child and he would have died under that deck.

    When I worked Air Force Rescue Coordination center, damn 24 yrs ago now--shut up Cypher, we kept lists of SAR dog outfits nation wide. We ran the Federal funding to task Civil Air Patrol to fly the teams to where they were needed. Those dogs made a life or death difference all the time.

    Don't know why I needed to post this, just hadn't thought about it for a long time. :cool:
