    SHOOTING INCIDENTS, COMMON FACTORS

    FBI Agent Involved Shootings, 1989-1994

    ♦ Average 20-30 shootings per year, typically in plain civilian clothing
    ♦ FBI agents donít do patrol work, donít police bars, donít answer domestic disturbance callsótheir
    shootings closely parallel those of private citizens.
    ♦ Roughly one half of FBI involved shootings occur because of a criminal attempting to rob or assault
    what they think is a private citizen, who turns out to be an FBI agent, since FBI agents are armed in
    civilian clothes.
    ♦ 92% occurred at 6-10 feet
    ♦ Average rounds fired 3.2


    Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Discharge Report, 2007

    ♦ 56 incidents in which shots were fired
    ♦ 12 were accidental discharges, usually during cleaning
    ♦ Of the 44 defensive shootings:
    ♦ Average distance was 14.6 feet (about the length of a car).
    ♦ Average number of shots fired 5


    Rangemaster Student Involved Shootings

    ♦ 46 incidents to date. Of these, 10 were selected for a presentation at the 2008 Tactical Conference.
    Of those ten representative shootings:
    ♦ 5 of 10 involved an armed robbery by one or two suspects;
    ♦ 3 occurred on mall parking lots, only one occurred in home;
    ♦ In all but one, the range was inside the length of a large car/SUV;
    ♦ 4 out of 10 incidents involved 2 or more suspects;
    ♦ Average number of shots fired 3.8 (low-1, high-11)


    Common Threads:

    ♦ FBI: 6-10 feet/DEA: 14.6 feet/Rangemaster: 4-15 feet = 1 car length(average mid-size car about 15 feet
    in length)
    ♦ Plain clothing, gun concealed, need fast concealed access.
    ♦ High probability of more than one assailant.
    ♦ Most occur in public areas, parking lots, malls, NOT at home. WEAR YOUR GUN!

    The old adage, ďThree yards, three seconds, three shotsĒ has a lot of validity. Most of these incidents
    happened at a distance equal to or slightly less than the length of a car. At that distance, your ability
    to produce the gun very quickly and get reliable hits with the first few shots are the most important
    skills.
    Good stuff. Most fascinated by the FBI stats. Going on 14 years old - would love to see an update.
