For a totally inadequate account of a fantastic police shootout go to: http://www.wftv.com/news/3644346/detail.html

Let me tell you the "inside story" as posted on our local law enforcment officers bulletin board.

Orange County, (Orlando) Florida, Deputy Jennifer Fulford and her partner were ambushed while responding to a 911 home invasion call. Three males were in the home for the purpose of hijacking a stash of marijuana when the deputies arrived.

The men opened fire and struck both Jennifer and her partner. Jennifer was hit seven times, including a round to her gun hand, incapcitating that hand. She emptied her gun, shooting one of the three, who subsequently died. Then using her knees and her unwounded hand she reloaded and killed a second man with a shot to the head. The third man fled but was caught later.

In the gun battle, which lasted 51 seconds, Jennifer fired 21 rounds. Her partner, who was also wounded, fired 4.

Her weapon was a Glock .45 caliber, but this story is not about Glocks, it is about my heroine - Deputy Jennifer Fulford.

I've never met her, but I think I'm in love.

:cheers:

Be prepared . . .

Apparently, she planned to shoot a lot.

And won, thank God!

WOW!!! What a gal!!

Now there is one lady I'd be HONORED to meet! Equaled only by meeting Mrs. Bush!
As far as the glock is concerned, I'm just glad she was able to shoot it to protect everyone concerned, including herself, before it blew up in her hand!!
How tragic would that have been?! To be able to blow those pieces of excrement to hell, only to lose all because of a glock!

Fcolins,

I’m sure that after the events Deputy Fulford, my new heroine I should add, will grow much more attached to her Glock. Although what saved her life was her willing to fight, that Glock was a big part of the equation. After been hit in her shooting hand/arm she changed mags and shot weak-handed and the pistol just WORKED.

Any gun could've choked in a situation like that. Could it be possible that these Glocks are not that bad?

As in most things, Glock's are not as good as some say and not as bad as others say...

Funny how any thread where a Glock is mentioned becomes a Glock thread.


This woman did her job admirably. She should be given some sort of award.

Couldn't agree more!

Right on Ed!

Wish Deputy Fulford a prompt and full recovery, and as the Ogro says she should be commended for her bravery!

Writing Press Releases for the guys in Smyrna now, are we?

I'm quite familiar with that particular syndrome:
  • When my neighbor Dennis Malerba prevailed in a DPF situation back in '80, his wife wanted to mount his Model 59 S&W in Lucite under track lighting.[/*:1e10uunc]
  • The first words out of Dean Caputo's mouth to me right after his 1991 "Firefight on the Edge of the 'Hood," were "I'm here to tell you, Black Talons work!"[/*:1e10uunc]
  • Five years ago when my friend P.O.J.D. performed a remarkable physical feat and blew up a wouldbe cop-killer while hanging by one armpit from the door of an accelerating vehicle, his wife couldn't say enough about his Model 19 Glock.[/*:1e10uunc]
It's silly, but it's quite natural. In each of these events with which I am intimately familiar, the immediate focus was on the hardware as opposed to the training or the "fight in the dog."

Jennifer Fulford prevailed, not because of her Glock Model 21 or her load selection or her duty rig, but because she was willing determined to stay in the fight and she'd trained in making a reload!

She is every inch and ounce a heroine!

Dean may recall the full particulars on this one, but some years back an officer was hit and down, but conitued to shoot and took down his assailant(s). When debriefed later as to why, he responded, "I wasn't out of ammo and I wasn't dead."

The officer should be commended for her actions, not the departments choice of hardware.

Well, thank goodness it didn't blew up. Since it didn't we still have the good gal still with us and two bag guys less.

Didn't OCSO adopt the G37? The "Glock .45 caliber" might not be a .45 ACP.

Anyone who can take seven hits and still finish the fight needs to be teaching tactics and combat mindset.

This story makes me think of Stacy Lim, another tough woman.

You guys remember her?

I don't know which is worse, taking seven rounds total, or just one .357 to the chest. Gotta be a helluva thing to live through, much less fight through, either way.

Another candidate?

J.C., seems to me that Deputy Fulford is a fine candidate for the 2004 award.

She'd certainly get my vote.

Yeah, Stacy's Beretta worked just fine too. It didn't break in her hand and the bad guy didn't take it apart in her hand either...

The riddle of steel? These women were stronger than any steel in their hand or anybody else's. :!:
