Tell us your qualification drills
I was reading Rentacop's post on the feds qualification. It got me thinking, it would be fun to see other qualifications. I would like to see a thread on you qualification or drills you use to keep up to speed and test your self. I like to have qualifications in my tool box and they are fun to shoot as well. Give use the following.

# of round
Kind of target
Outline of qual
Your average score
and how to score the target
What ever else you would like us to know

This is the current qualification my department uses.

50 round
Target is a B-27E
My average score is 460+:D
Total points is 500, min score is a 375, 75%
Last I knew, 2 years ago this was the basic course of fire in the police academy.
All shot standing from holster.

4 yard, vest drill 2 body 2 head, 4 sec.
7 yard, 3 round strong hand only 6 sec.
7 yard, 3 rounds support hand only 8 sec.
10 yard, 10 rounds with a type one malefaction 15 sec.
15 yards, 10 rounds 5 speed load then 5, 15 sec.

Have fun!

Who Cares???
Qualification does NOT equal training.

Qualification is to TEST an officer's proficiency with their firearm. Qualification is for PROOF that the officer has had sufficient training.

You don't go to school just to take the final exam... you go to class. The exam is to make sure you LEARNED SOMETHING.

Making a big deal over Q courses is like making a big deal over the final... screw the final, it's the diploma that matters.
