You don't want to pay more taxes cause you can't keep up with gas prices Mr 427. You need to get yourself a nice 1983 chevette, and with all the money you save on gas you can buy more ammo for your local PD. I call that a win win! :)
I agree with both SIXTO and AZHUSKER that qualifying is not practice and practice is not qualifying. Most depts do not have the budget allocated to train all their officers to ensure all meet standards. I (as a "standard" officer in my dept) would absolutely spend as much time as possible training. IIRC, some court decisions(including SCOTUS) would require alot more training for LEOS.

I need more training. The rest of the world can do as they please. BG are expert shots naturally and should never practice lest they impair their excellent sideways/ overhand shooting technique. Muslims should never touch the trigger of a gun until the day after they do battle with an infidel allah said so
Glad the officer got his man
