“A loaded handgun was reported missing last month by Albany police Officer Christian M. Mesley, who is a longtime firearms instructor for the department,” timesunion.com reports. “Mesley, formerly president of the Albany Police Officers Union and its umbrella union, Council 82, filed a report with the Bethlehem Police Department on April 10 saying he may have lost his gun two days earlier at an old quarry that’s used as an outdoor gun range by police officers . . . Mesley told Bethlehem police he recalled having the .27-caliber Glock pistol at about noon that Tuesday and couldn’t find the gun more than six hours later ‘when he went to locate the item.’ The firearm was loaded with 10 rounds of Speer Gold Dot Blazer 180 grain ammunition.” Yowzir! 180 grains out of a .27-caliber GLOCK? I reckon he was lucky to lose that gun. Even so . . . not cool.
