Officer Steve Gazdik

Chardon Police Department Chardon OH Saves Club

Hit TWICE in the chest and a grazing shot in the arm WITH a .357. Sounds nasty! Could have been fatal. If not for the Second Chance® vest, Steve Gazdik would have been another statistic in the annals of police officers shot and killed in the line of duty. Normally, policemen don’t face this sort of firepower on the street, but when Officer Gazdik was shot; it was with his own service revolver. While arresting a “docile” doper, Gazdik’s gun was wrestled away and in the ensuing struggle his assailant shot him twice. The first shot was 1 inch from his chest, the second 4 inches.

We welcome Officer Steve Gazdik, SAVE #54, to The Safariland Group SAVES CLUB®.
