Dedicate yourself to your firearms training

Submitted by:

If your bowling average, your golf handicap, or your horseshoe scores (and skills) are better than your shooting averages, and you still work the streets in LE, maybe it's time to rethink your strategy. Check the Officer Down section of PoliceOne to understand why it is important to get those shooting averages up. Too many Officers go to the range to few times and get by just with a passing score. The same officers will go down to the local golf course or driving range and slam a bucket of balls every weekend. Get in the training and tactical mindset.

Be well. Stay safe. Train hard. Fight hard.
