I have regarded the pump-action shotgun as my “go-to” firearm for some time. This is due to police experience when the shotgun was not a personal weapon but the “community” firearm shared by many officers. It had to come up shooting every time, and there were rules concerning its storage and load.
You’re probably familiar with the phrase “Run, Hide, Fight,” that’s promoted—in that order—as the correct response to an active shooter. While that might be good advice for some and can be learned by watching videos on YouTube, unfortunately the end result is often Run, Hide, Die.
My first experience with ROBAR was shortly after I left the Sheriff’s Office to work for S.W.A.T. way back in 1987. I took my much-used Series 70 Colt 1911 Government Model to them to apply the then-new NP3® to it.
