Here’s who you missed if you didn’t make the Northwest Chicagoland meeting in Arlington Heights, IL last Wednesday evening. Tim Gramins of the Skokie Police Department who engaged in a gun battle with a four-time killer and bank robber who soaked up over a dozen .45 caliber rounds, most of which would have been fatal with enough time.
I’ll be honest, I’m kicking myself for not making the meeting.
Here’s his story, told with Mas Ayoob interviewing him some time back.
From the ProArms Podcast:
August 2008, Officer Tim Gramins of the Skokie, IL Police dept. comes across a bad guy, a real bad guy who soaked up 14 rounds of .45ACP before the last 3 shots took him down. Listen here to Officer Gramins tell the story of what happened that day.

I’m working to see if we’ve got a recording of the meeting of Officer Gramins’ presentation.
