Yes, I read about their lack of range time -- I can't even remember where at this point but it is fairly crazy considering the level of crime they have to deal with. It seems like I saw that NYPD's average response time is now between 9-10 minutes. The next time I am in NYC, if I have to dial 911, I believe I will make sure I am behind as much cover as possible at the 8 minute and 50 second mark.
On a more serious note, once a year at the range is probably less or the same as a lot of people who get concealed carry permits - remember to shoot it once a year to blow the rust off of it.
I wonder if Bloomberg's detail is required to carry Glocks which have been modified to have 742lb triggers (slight exaggeration)?
