I'm just curious how often situations turn out ugly.
My gun is out every shift whether it be as I'm approaching a priority call, on a traffic stop that might not feel so right, or while pointing it at a suspect for some reason. We have to justify why its out of the holster, but that's not hard (particularly because you usually aren't poiting it at anyone). My baton has left its holster once so far while on duty, and that was in a riot type situation... Its not the greatest tool considering I have pepper spray and a taser on my belt as well.
