USA COPS Need Some Serious

Firearms Training!

The New York City Police for preventing a dangerous criminal

from fleeing has apparently legitimately shot up some of the

surrounding citizenry. These kinds of problems can be addressed

very often in the month of October in 2015. At that incident, one

female bystander was wounded badly by one of the bullets that

were shot by the cops.

A careful study of reality which is also hardly exhaustive reveals

that there is wrong in the common knowledge where different

firearms are involved. The police of USA are not properly trained

professionals regarding firearms. People belong to this

misconception which can be understandable. USA dwellers

follow a steady diet of some cop TV soap opera or shows and

some movies in which the heroes end up shooting all the bad

guys and usually by dropping them with just a single, perfectly

placed bullet or shot, or even shooting the bad guy to a wound,

virtually in every episode and in most of the cases virtually the

bullet always immediately drops and the same bullet

incapacitates the bad guy.

The truth is that most of the police officers are not competent

shooters which are really overwhelming as well as frightening.

They practice shooting very rarely in their own and only a small

portion of the cops spend their own money and time in tactical

schools for firearms training. There are many police officers

those who have only one single handgun which is their issued

duty firearm. Some of the cops own a handgun while others won

a shotgun or some kind of 0.22LR rifle with them. It is a very

serious problem in USA.

There are many Law Enforcement Organizations (LEOs) those

are inherently anti-gun. These organizations don’t able to trust

their officers. They fear about the accidental discharges by the

cops much more than about the consequences of accidently

shooting the innocent citizens. These organizations focus on

some other matters like they try to prevent accidental discharges

that happen through mechanical means rather than spending

their money and time which is necessary to increase the

accurate and effective shootings.Some of the LEOs provide some

professional firearms and also give competent training but most

of these organizations don’t give such firearms and training. The

full-agency qualifications are really very expensive. It is

problematic not only in ammunition but also in manpower. It

takes too many days to take qualifications because the police

officers need to be taken off the street and that requires the cop’s

double shifts duty for not being trained. This type of training

usually means a lot of overtime costs.

At some point, most of the officers are introduced to their duty

handguns or shotguns during either their basic state academy or

during their basic agency academy. There are many states those

require a common basic academy of firearms trainingfor all certified

officers and most of these agencies virtually require their field-

training program and own in-house academy. The public of USA

does not realize that in most places the officers will not be

patrolling solo from their date of hiring for nearly a year.

There are few things like basic knowledge about the handgun

safety, marksmanship and the rudimentary maintenance which

are required for a basic training experience. The cops need to be

exposed to both shoot and do not shoot sort of training. It is

unusual if one shoot more than 200 rounds in a basic training.

These are some light-loaded practice session that recruits only

fire having characteristics that are a lot different from the

regular duty ammo.

The qualifications of the cops are generally composed of only

shooting standard and stationary silhouette targets which are

having suitable ranges and are never-changing and known. The

outer limit is usually twenty five yards. The passing score is

quite generous which is very low as 70% that is one need to hit

only 35 targets out of 50 rounds and this qualified firing is done

in not more than 50 rounds. Most of the caps are allowed to

reshoot as many times as required for qualify. Some of the

training agencies are set up with more skillful and advanced

tactical training. These trainings are having a variety of

scenarios and target those the officers can encounter but always

this does not happen because such trainings require different

kinds of specialized weapons and equipment which are very


There are some training agencies that require gun cleaning after

using it during qualification and those agencies also provide the

means of gun cleaning. This process is good as there are many

police officers those who do not have idea about how to clean

their guns properly after use and they also do not have their own

gun cleaning equipment. Shotgun qualifications occur in more or

less once in a single year. This consists of shooting a few slugs, a

few skeet and a few rounds of buckshot. They do not have any

rifles. There are some other trainings that are occurred

infrequently which includes some low light shooting and some

multiple target shooting, and an experience of shoot or do not

shoot along with a laser system and a video every five or six

years which records different hits or misses of the target.

The firing training should be such that lessons for both the

police and the public alike should follow:

•Shooting with a handgun accurately from any distance should

have a correct training, regular and practice.

•Most of the police officers should have hitting probabilities are

mediocre at his or her best even at a very near place of inside a

phone-booth range.

•The office hit probability increases with a correct and

professional training which cannot be replaced by mere

qualification shooting.

•The more the distance of a place, the less will be the police

hitting probability. The less the ambient lighting, the less will be

the hitting probability.

•In most of the cases, the police officers have much more chances

to miss the target than to hit it.

•It is the Hollywood nonsense that the idea of police officers has

the capabilities to shoot the criminals by hitting at the wound

but actually at any ridiculously close ranges, the cops are barely

able to hit the target.

The truth is that the cops do not have any legal duty to protect

the citizen. They only protect the society from any kind of crime

in their presence and to investigate it after the crime takes

place. Most of the police officers cannot able to protect the

citizens or common people reliably by using their firearms and

other weapons even if they want to perform their duties

sincerely. Therefore some serious firearms training are very

necessary for the USA cops for performing their duties properly.
