With the lame federal regulations and crazy court decisions, it a freakin' miracle that they allow the Academy to teach as much as they do.
When you are required to teach new officers that they carry a side am to "frighten" the bad guys, but they really aren't allowed to shoot them, is it any wonder they don't take firearms training more seriously???
