100 rounds of practice shooting per month

That's 25 rds a week. That's less than 2 magazines on a Saturday morning. Most people I know burn through 4 times that every weekend. Do you really want LEs that get that little practice??

A lot of police officers do less than 100 rounds per year. They shoot their yearly qualifier and that's it. My range hosts police qualifiers. They are not impressive.

Yes, the fewer the better these days-”it ain’t no more”, remember?

LEOs on average are much poorer shots than armed citizens, with an average shots per incident rate nearly 300% higher than citizens, and a hit rate nearly 500% lower... where do all those misses go?
