    What is your favourate Sidearm???

    Hi just wondering what side-arms people prefer. I'm particularly fond of the H&K USP, due to its high calibre round, great stopping power, durability, excellent accesories, ambidexterity and lets not forget the way it easily field strips. But hey i haven't used a whole lot of side arms so anyone...

    Ever had security guards follow you round a supermarket or other store?

    This happens to me a lot, though I've never shop-lifted in my life. Maybe I just look dodgy??? I'd be interested to know if there are many people for whom it has never happened. Incidentally it's pretty funny when it happens, it's like a game of peek-a-boo as they appear from round the aisle.

    Can someone clarify the legal rights of security guards?

    Recently I got stopped at the alarm barrier at a supermarket because the cashier on the checkout didn't spot and remove a security tag. I was in a hurry but I cooperated anyway. Considering that I had paid for everything and was not committing a crime - did I have the right to just tell the...

    What stops Security Guards being covered in the Red Dye that is meant to...

    ...explode if the money is stolen? If you steal money off a security guard, delivering to a bank or cash machine for example, you apparently run the risk of being covered in red dye. Is this deactivated by a key or similar so that it doesn't explode on the security guards themselves?
