    I let a guy shoot the "brass beauty" not long after I got it. It was the first time he'd shot a pistol in his life. From about 25ft you could dam near cover his 5 round group with a silver dollar. Yeah, some are natural born shooters.

    fact is it is within a year of the election, the Senate will not allow him to appoint her successor. Nov 2020 he will lose.

  • Those are mostly Hispanic cops. All under six foot, all morbidly obese and all convinced they rule.


    Cops need to be white and over six feet tall.

  • 300 rounds fired....and probably only 5 or 6 hit the intended target...

Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried; the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me."

    Mighty fine shooting there. :thumbsup


    Like I said, the pigs don't stop pulling the trigger until the mag is empty.


    I'd bet $100 that a bunch of them couldn't even see the perps they were shooting at. But hell, they got their rounds off and went home. Win win right?

  • It's just MY opinion....but a pistol is the wrong weapon for that kind of shootout. The police would be better served by a short, pistol-caliber carbine with quick acquisition sights or scope.


    But that's just MY opinion...

    Back when I was a kid cops I knew had the shotgun up front and a mini 14 in the trunk.

  • They also need to fire about 5 thousand rounds a year to stay proficient...

  • I think SD is correct in that it really does take thousands of rounds a year to keep proficient. things we used to do with handguns was to dry fire. old time thing was put a dime on the rear sight. if it fell off you were jerking.


    Now? things like realistic BB guns and laser trainers for real guns make it so there is no excuse for not keeping up to some level.


    Still... Live rounds are different. We like to set up targets (soda cans fear me) at all sorts of various distances from 20' to 100 yards. you really get to know your gun doing that.

  • Yep... every step up towards realism is still a pale shadow of the real thing. Hunting often comes close as your heart rate etc are up.


    Few of us have been shot at where we had to/got to shoot back. Training for it would be.... uh.... problematic.


    That is one reason many cops come from the military.


    Even being shot at.... sometimes you are calm and sometimes not. I think it is a really rare person who is calm every time.

  • You can simulate stress by having a trainee run 100 to 200 yards and then firing a series of rounds at a target...and there's no excuse for not requiring such training.

    And Ruth said, "Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God. Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried; the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me."

  • In my limited experience it is different every time but I get your point. Some say just repetition will train 'muscle memory' I am sure there is some truth to that too. In any case..... any training is better than no training.


    What struck me was the number of cops who did not like firearms.

  • If they don't like firearms they need to get out of the business...

  • You are correct SD but many are in for the money and bennies.


    lazs

    Absolutely....so...if they want the money and the bennies they can do the training...

    And Ruth said, "Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God.

  • Yeah well,


    The only 2 folks I personally know who have taken a life defending themselves were both broads. One of whom I'm pretty sure had the guy at the gun store load it for her and never fired a single shot before the incident..the other..likely the same.


    I kinda get a kick out of someone who's never seen a real scrap tell me about "training". Deadeye shooting is more about bets than preservation.
