Last time I shot to qualify for a carry license I was 77 and,for kicks, would up doing some call shot against a 25-30 year old BO agent who wanted to legally carry concealed off duty. The instructor would tell us where he wanted the hits to be, center mass, head, groin, etc. We were shooting as soon as the instructor spoke. He(bangbang)ad. You know the drill. Happy to say I had impressed the BO and may have changed the way he handled stops out in the boonies.NO QUESTION but that you are CORRECT. - IMO, one of the problems is that the average members of the police forces do NOT shoot very well in 2020.
Problem is, that tees up an assumption that every fight is going to be on his terms, and prudence demands that you prepare for the possibility of being caught with pants down. Didn't one of the NTI's have a literal "Caught on the Crapper" stage?Long ago, knew the CFI for the USMS. Someone commented one time they'd never seen him practice from the holster. Reply: "That's 'cause i'm not stupid enough to serve felony warrants with a holstered gun."
