Viewpoint: ‘The line is hot’ on the gun range
Seven yards, 15 rounds, one target.
The police-issued .40 caliber Glock 23 carried some solid weight, but it wasn’t enough to unsteady my aim. I gripped the handle and pointed down range at the rounded ‘A’ section of my target. This was the first time I have held a loaded weapon.
“Ears on, the line is hot,” Cottage Grove police officer and longtime firearms instructor Matt Foucault shouted. “Fire at will.”
