 Busting firearms training myths
 Tip: Forget the 'Hollywood' dialogue

Dear PoliceOne Member,

Ten LEOs have been shot in the last 24 hours, and at least nine cops have already died by gunfire in 2011. With those numbers in mind and the fact that line-of-duty deaths jumped 37 percent in 2010, we encourage every LEO to read this column by Dave Smith, who suggests we enter into a 'conspiracy of safety.'

— PoliceOne Senior Editor Doug Wyllie

Gunfight training: Hype, myth, and BS (part two)
By Ron Avery, PoliceOne Contributor

Forget the 'Hollywood' dialogue
By Rich Von Voigt, PoliceOne Member
