Just the training methods of the bureaucracy.
Once upon a time, I bought a new handgun on a Friday afternoon. I went to the local FOP range to try it out early Saturday morning.
RO tells me that night shift is coming by to shoot qual(*) and I could use the range after them.
So, there are a few empty slots and the RO says to me "If you have a holster, you can shoot this with them". So I jump at the chance to see how well I'll do on their course. Bear in mind that I have never fired this gun before.
So we shoot at paper mostly at 3 and 7 yds, which is fine. There are a couple of relays at 15 and 25 with barricades for support. 50 rounds, 2 pts each.
When all is done and the scores are added, I shoot 98/100(*). Several of the shift barely passed in the 70% range, most were 80-85%. Even though geared for the lowest common denominator to pass, many barely did.
A cop-friend later told me "If you can't pass this course, you have no business carrying a gun".
(*) - In the back of my mind I wondered why 'night shift' didn't qualify at night?
(*) - My one round that 'missed' was actually a high chest hit that was out of the scoring zone. In real life it would have been 100% (or probably not, since in real life, BG's don't stand still and let you shoot at them 50 times).
