Hooker discusses officers carrying a second gun while on duty. He errs in that one main reason they do so is in the event they are disarmed they will still have a means to defend themselves. This was common practice among officers in the 80's so it was something he would have known about. In a related character error, Hooker comments he does not like snub nose revolvers as they do not do much for accuracy. While off duty, Hooker always used a snub nose revolver.
