Cops, Robbers, and the Weapons They Should Use
Charlie Dismore, native Texas, Marine Veteran, Military designated Rifle and Piston Expert is certified as an NRA Instructor in pistol, rife and shotguns. Charlie served in the Marines as a Combat Engineer, and his duty assignments took him around the world, some locations including Hawaii, Japan, Mediterranean Europe, as well as combat duty in Vietnam in 1968 and 1969. Charlie and his wife have made their in Austin since 2004. Besides his civilian career, Charlie is the principle operator of Texas FFL LLC-a business serving all levels of firearms shooters. See more info at http://www.texas.ffl.org. If you want to learn something about the weapons you’re writing into your story, Charlie’s the guy to ask.
For example. Your protagonist is a cop. What firearms would he/she use in your plot situation? If your cop needs to penetrate a certain substance at a certain distance, what weapon should you as the author put in your hero’s hand? What ammunition? Charlie is a military expert in rifles and pistols, and he is certified to teach people how to use them.
Bring your questions and notepads and prepare to make your fiction the most authentic it can be.
