Tip: Searching with a handgun

In today's P1 Video Tip, Ralph Mroz, Director of Training for the Police Officers Safety Association (POSA), explores the reasons why his organization believes that keeping the muzzle of your firearm slightly depressed while searching a building is more tactically sound than searching with the barrel pointed directly forward.

The cornerstone of their belief, as Mroz explains, is that this positioning will help prevent an unintentional discharge.
