    True Story - when I worked in the Pentagon way-back-when as a young Navy CDR, I stopped by my favorite stall and when departing, noticed something black next to the toilet. It was a Sig Sauer, P226 double stack. Holy Crap - really! As the resident NRA kook, my first thought was that I was being filmed. Nope - a young plainclothesman with an earbud left it. It was reunited. I was very impressed with the Sig for the brief time I had it that morning. I now own one:^)

    That number is way too high, I don't know that any agency of any significant size will always achieve 100% rating, but approximately .12% to .15% (depending on which article you believe as far as number of guns in inventory) at least not close to half of a percent and .1% lost can most definitely be taken down to say .05% with agents just freaking following department guidelines on securing weapons. Of course this was over a TWO year period or so.. That means that if an even number of guns were lost each year, then that number drops even lower.

    Regardless, any lost gun due to negligence is a bad thing and I completely agree the penalty should be swift and severe.

    Anyone in plain clothes who wears a gun for a living will attest to the fact it is hard to take a dump without your gun and holster sliding off your belt and hitting the floor...

    That is why I have always taught my guys to stick the damn gun in your underwear until you stand up. I haven't had anyone forget a gun yet... LOL
