I would encourage all to read POLICE PISTOLCRAFT - The Reality-Based New Paradigm of Police Firearms Training Published in 2006
I have no financial or personal interest in this company nor do I know the author. It is simply a great read.

Allrighty then , since no specific info was pointed to , only a marketing site that i wont take the time to surf with out a specific article that grabbs me , i would say I looked and no thanks ,
For too many years, police firearms training programs have been designed based primarily upon the influence of outside sources: the military, civilian target and competition shooters, and some of the self-proclaimed “gun gurus” who often have a personal and financial stake in promoting their own style of pistolcraft.
seems to me to be the operative thought here .
who often have a personal and financial stake in promoting their own style of pistolcraft.
Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .
Criminals are looking for victims, not opponents.

Here is a review that I posted a few months ago...
In the year 2000, veteran Mass State Police Trooper Mike Conti was offered to head up a new Firearms Training Unit (FTU) for his agency.
But it was not until the MSP Colonel informed Mike that the goal of the program was to, "Make our people safe, make sure that they get home at the end of the shift" that Conti accepted the generous offer.
Although well schooled on the modern techique shooting methods, Conti had already decided that this alone left quite a hole in police survival, and made the decision that mindset, Applegate point shooting and a Fairbairn type house of horrors was also needed for a well rounded combat shooting system.
This book is the result of that process, one that was written for police instructors as opposed to civilian and military---who have different missions.
The book begins with Conti's personal journey of finding out what is most practical for survival shooting, and then takes off from there.
Chapter three is a very good historical perspective of the development of combat shooting, while chapters 3-5 makes the case of why the MSP has been doing what it now teaches.
Chapters 6-7 fully details the training program and chapter 8 explains what is taught in the two week recruit firearms training program.
Included in all this is a very detailed explaination and description of the MSP "Fun/Kill house and how one can be effectively and at low cost be set up by any department.
Chapter 9 is titled Monitoring the Results and chapter 10 is called, The Future.
But the book does not end here, because the next 157 pages are my personal favorite.
These are a series of well illustrated appendices, such as...
Pistol trivia, courses of fire analysis, range safety, safety in the real world, one handed pistol malfunction techniques, clearing malfunctions ( or as old farts like myself used to call them..JAMS!!!), precision pistol shooting, range/house of horror designs, alternative shooting positions, moving targets, use of Sims and airsoft, what's new in sight R&D and an excellent 11 page description of point shooting.
IMHO this book is a must have for instructors and well worth the small asking price of $29.95
