My question is: 1) what does this have to do with proficiency, and
2)has anyone else encountered this?
I got the same crap from some a$$hat when I first qualified at the police academy. I had one jagged hole in the middle of the forehead of the "Coke Bottle" target. The 'instructor" told me that he couldn't count the number of hits and that I would have to shoot again and that I have should not have shot the target in the head.Of course I protested to no avail. (At Mott Lake we were trained to shoot at a 2-inch band across the eyes. Old habits die hard I guess!)
I re-shot at the center of the target and again there was one jagged hole, this time in dead center of the target. The instructor told me I was a wise ass and to get off of "his" range.
He had to give me 50 out of 50 because the Senior Rangemaster was watching and confirmed the score.
