    Dude was hauling balls. Roads are very nice up here in Kentucky and that's how fast we'd ALL like to drive.

    Man that TruSpeed is fast, but so is the LEO. I'm happy he was responding to a call, not just driving PSL x2 for fun haha

    The funny thing about that is I was shooting through my windshield's 50% VLT ceramic tint with IR filtering, which really makes the gun work to get a speed.

    The TSS has so many things going for it, which is why I'll always say it's my favorite gun. It was able to get through that 50% barrier and still aquire a speed. It's small, compact, hard to jam and the horizontal lens' make mirror shots a breeze. Theres not a single thing I dislike about the gun. I've never been this lucky while practice shooting

    I assume the Flashing Light had just turned on at Krispy Kreme.

    This just goes to show how deadly close range LIDAR can be in the hands of the right user! That was awesome how you captured with rear/side/front camera as well!!! Nicely done.

    I love my TSS as well, but seriously it is extremely easy to jam.

    For new jammers and a good install maybe. It's a bit easier than a DET or XLR. It will easily find holes in a rough install, if you can't get your hands on a DET, this is one of the other ones I'd recommend. It's a wicked gun

    Love the fact that this Leo decided to stay in the far right lane as he passed a car on the shoulder, in the triple digits. SOMETHING TO KEEP IN MIND FOLKS!
    ...you know the next time you see someone on the shoulder.

    Pretty funny actually - I had been practicing earlier and had put the gun down on the passenger seat to do some work and it had power saved and turned itself off. So when I heard the siren, looked in the rvm and saw him closing that fast, I just reached over quickly to the passenger seat, picked up the gun, pressed the fire button to power it on (that was at the 5 second mark of the video), brought it up to my eye and had his speed a couple seconds later. It was just so easy to get the job done...and I'm sure LEOs who put down this gun to eat a donut aren't at much of a disadvantage. Throw donut on seat, pick up TSS with sticky fingers, shoot and kaboom, PT for anyone not equipped with CMs.

    There's so much to love about the gun, not least of which is how fast you can power it on, and acquire a speed. But yeah, it's compact, light, feels great in your hands with the textured rubberized finish, buttons are well positioned, binocular style is awesome, and from what I've been told by experienced shooters, it's No. 4 in pecking order of hardest guns to jam. DETC, DESL, XLR, TSS. (Some may argue the regular TruSpeed is 4th because of the bigger optics.... but either way, the TSS has become the most popular gun out there for enthusiasts anyway. The XLR seems to be pretty popular with the LEOs, followed by the TSS. It's a great gun to have anyway, and I'll probably hold onto for quite a while.

    I guess considering this is in Harlan County, just about everything they do here is "Justified" :laugh:

    I thought the same thing.

    [Sarcasm: But it’s okay, he’s a professional.]

    @hiddencam Do you have a name for your car?

    With all the cameras it’d only be appropriate :)

    Maybe a license plate like ISAWDAT

    I wish Tennessee had a contract with LTI, my TMGs eat the TSS for lunch. Alas, it's all Stalker XLRs that I'm seeing lately. Nashville, Chattanooga and Memphis all seem to have them now.

    Timing is everything. The fact that you happened to be sitting there and had the F/R cams going was just awesome. Great Vid!

    I watched 5 times over and I am yet to see any balls being hauled. I though those balls were only a requirement for large lifted pickup trucks.
