Andrew Lamb, a deputy with the Webster County Sheriff’s Office, uses a Glock 22 to do his job.
“To apprehend suspects, help us in doing our job, and to keep us safe, make sure we go home every night,” explained Lamb. “We train about once a month. It is very important. We have to be quick and well trained to make sure we go home.”
The bullets used in the live training sessions are hard to find.
“We, like any law enforcement agency use our guns everyday or at least have them with us. And they are tools and we need to be familiar with them and we can’t do that if we are not going to the range and practicing. We can have life threatening consequences if you don’t train,” explained Webster County Sheriff Roye Cole. “It’s a drastic shortage right now in them and everybody is buying up ammo and we are trying to buy up ammo too and we are just running out of luck.”
