The only realistic way to improve reaction and accuracy during "shootouts" is "on the job experience." Sorry, but it is true.

It's like Scott said... few officers face deadly threat rising to the level of any need for deadly force. Many would like you to believe it's the "wild west" and every Cop is Harry Callahan but it just ain't so.

LEO, like any other profession, has its percentage of avid shooters who train on their own time and buy their own ammo ... Just like we do... But in no way is that a majority.

For most, the gun is just another piece of equipment to lug around everyday and qualify with once a year.

1)"Can you please take him alive while he is shooting us?"
2)"Can you please calm him down while he is shoot us?"
3)"Can you please take him in custody while he is trying to blow your head up?"
4)"Since you don't spent much time on marksmanship,its time to practice now.Let's do it!The one who doesn't get killed wins!"

Or should I tell him "KNOCK THE MOTHERF*CKER DOWN WITH A MOZAMBIQUE!"(Shot in the head and in the chest...double tapping) and be 100% sure that he will carry out the order rapidly and effectively.

In such situation...what would you prefer?
