They only had to land 60% of their shots on target, heck I can do what he was saying with almost no experience.
And I used to work with the guy who retired from the largest police dept. range in the country in another unifromed capacity and he said the same: what a joke. "Aim big, miss small." And the main reason most cops go thru "qualification" is to inspect the guns -- they are SO poorly maintained as to be dangerous without it. Sorry.

Point is proper training and practice! Cops are SO not a part of that equation. Actually, I quit a club because there were guys on the job who thought cross-firing and ricochets indoors were funny. Funny!

I was a much better shot when I was younger (teens early 20's).

Now I'm happy when I just hit the target.

Great links. Those are skills everyone should practice, after getting the basics down of course. Thanks for sharing.

I wanted to get better with my 9mm so I went out and bought a 22 handgun. Got tired of the target after 80 rounds. I went out to the car and grabbed these. Took ten shots at each. Was happy to hit both of them twice. It made me try harder.
