I trained under the Wisconsin LEO Fire arms manual. It is pretty thorough.
The funny thing is that most of these small town PD's don't even requalify, they have an officer on their force that is labeled a Fire arms Instructor and he signs off for them. It is ridiculous. I know many will step up and say it is not true, but the fact is it is true.
Most of us have far more experience at fire arm safety then they do.
As far as the NRA goes, I sometimes wonder where their interests really are. I tend to lean toward the money.
And just why should a retired cop be able to carry concealed? He has no powers of arrest.
