very true. due to declining health issues i cannot hold a handgun steady any more, and my eyesight is bad too. all i can do now is go in the back yard and throw lead down range, i literally have to be on top of the target to hit it.

when your talking about laying down suppressing fire its stated as such suppressing fire not suppression fire which is more along the lines of a fire suppression system.
Different training = different terminology = same result (lead flies toward the bad guys).
If we really want to examine it, the lead flying downrange is "suppressing" the bad guys...but the action of sending that lead downrange is "suppression" of the bad guys since suppression is the act of suppressing.
Those S&W revolvers and pistol, along with the Mossberg shotgun were/are standard LEO issued weapons. Maybe they were stolen from the LEO's or were sold off to purchase new weapons and wound up on the wrong side of the law, kinda like the Pentagon shooters weapon of choice.
There may be a cry to ban all LEO's weapons next if that's the case. Go back to a billy club.
if they went back to billy clubs our police would be like the U.K. like the chris titus joke goes about the batman on Buckingham palace for 5 hours he goes on and says that wouldnt happen in america because we have guns here after 3 minutes dead batman, da na na na BOOM...
I just find it strange that no readily handy everyday items like scewdrivers, kitchen knives, baseball bats or hammers didn't make the list. LOL
It makes me wonder if this list may have been put out there by the anti 2A crowd since it has more economical firearms primarily. They are always chipping away where they can and we have to stay vigilant. Just a thought.

Just brilliant to hear that, seeing as I own two S&W .38" calibre revolvers LOL. It did not specify if they meant .38" Special (which I assume they do) or the .38" S&W calibre LOL? I own a British WWII .380" Cal. (aka .38" S&W or .380"/200) M&P "Victory Model" Revolver and a newer (circa 1966-1967 era) Model 10-5 .38" Special. I can assure you that since they have been in my stewardship, neither has been fired in anger and I intend to keep it that way.
Well at least the Webley & Scott Mk.IV .38in revolver and the Martini-Henry Rifle were not on the list. That makes me feel a bit better LOL.
