    The most honest thing I can tell you is, dont train yourself. You will be much better off completly green when it come to the firearms stuff. The new shooters always do better.
    The reason why is no bad or even just different habits are engraved in your melon. They will teach you their way, and expect you to do it that way. If you "train" on your own, you will be digging yourself out of a hole instead of starting on level ground.
    If you must do something, just work on trigger control and sight picture. That can be done with any kind of gun. Besides, it might take you years to get hired and the feds change guns as often as underwear.
    As the Lead Firearms Instructor for my agency I think Sixto nailed it. I too, prefer a shooter who doesn't have too much under his belt. I can mold his basic marksmanship in a way that will better transition him to tactical shooting and operating in the real world...

    Happy hunting!
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    thanks...I don't have a law degree but I'm a CPA with a flawless background. From what my recruiter has said, I have a reasonable chance.

    thanks for the advice and affirmation.

    my thought process has simply been...I've been shooting guns for a long time. I haven't owned any of the potential issue weapons. I would like to see what they're all about. I am in the market for a new pistol. I wanted to find out what the FBI issues since it's my top career choice. Now I am going to buy that gun and change nothing else other than which gun I'm shooting.

    From what I understand, CPA's are wanted. My good friends wife is a CPA, and got hired by the FBI right after 9/11. I think there has been a slight shift since then, but CPA's are still needed in the FBI.

    Good luck, keep us posted.
