MO called 9:50 AM.

O'Mara on direct.

MO: GZ and Shellie took firearms safety course together.

MO explained why it's better to carry a pistol without external safety (he says 'exterior').

MO: All LEO's he knows of use pistols without exterior safeties.

MO says 'extended trigger pull'.

MO: He carries with a round in the chamber. For LEO's it is a violation of policy not to have a round in the chamber.

MO: It doesn't make sense not to have a full magazine.

MO: GZ shoots right handed, writes left handed.

MO advised GZ to carry in the way he is most comfortable, practice it consistently.

O'Mara asking about MO's familiarity with GZ's voice. MO has never before heard GZ scream as on Lauer 911 recording.

Recording playing.

In order not to start a new thread I'll ask it here:  Is it possible to repeatedly fire the Kel Tec PF9 using only one hand?

Of course.

Bernie on cross.

He asked MO to confirm what Sondra said about book. MO also doesn't know how many sold, refers Q to publisher.

Bernie asking about GZ's holster. I don't know what he is getting at.

Bernie is trying to establish that GZ wouldn't have holstered his gun if he didn't know TM was dead.

ETA: This doesn't refer to the questions I mentioned in the last post. I still don't know what their purpose was.

Of course.
During this video, two hands are used for repeated firing.  Have you used the weapon?  I was under the impression that the slide is needed to keep chambering a new bullet from the magazine.

Firing a round cycles the slide.

A two hand grip is used to reduce the muzzle rise and to more quickly get back on target.

That's kind of what 'automatic' and 'semi-automatic' mean.

I know of no modern slide action semi-automatic pistol that requires you to manually (two hand) cycle the round.  It wouldn't be semi-automatic if you did.

Indeed.  I understand the weapon function, RJ doesn't.
