and I could use your help. Gentlemen, my agency has just gotten AR's and now we have to train the troops. So I am calling on the Almighty AR-15.com for help. We have to put together a training program from zero, so I was hoping some of you might be able to send me copies of your rifle carbine training manuals, qualification courses, etc. or suggest places to get that type of info. I've made some contacts already (NRA, OPS) but any additional thoughts on the subject would be much appreciated. E-mail me direct if you want. higear223@hotmail.com Thanks, Greg

I would try the State Police certification organizations. In Ohio ours is called the Ohio Peace Officers Training Council. They set the standards by which all Peace Officers in Ohio are certified in various fields of police work including firearms training. I'm sure most states have similar organizations.

You might contact the folks over at Texas Tactical Police Officers Assoc. They got some of the very best programs from some of the most experienced operators. www.ttpoa.org Matter of fact: Houston PD has just started their patrol rifle program and as of last week held their first class. HPD SWAT put the program together and taught it. ttpoa - this is probably one of the very best tactical associations and it's not just me who thinks so. This has been said by people outside our state. You won't go wrong.

Thank you for your responses.I owe some of you e-mails. Bare with me as I have alot going on right now and I'm typing as fast as I can. Let me give you some more information as to my situation. First, I am not a full time officer, I am a reserve. We have one of the best reserve programs in the country. We get the same training as the regular deputies and we work in all divisions, ride one man cars, work our own saturations, etc. So me being a "gun guy" naturally I manage to work my way out to the range. Most of us reserve instructors were even fortunate enough to be put through FBI Instructor School by the agency. So when these rifles showed up I kinda volunteered to help put a program together. Since as far as I know I'm the only instructor with any formal carbine type training I am hoping to get us closer to the cutting edge type of training we really need. And since were not known for being a "high speed, low drag" type of agency I will need all the ammunition I can get to get the type of training our people deserve. So here I am asking for your help. I feel I need to show the bosses what other people are doing to back up what I think we need to do. So during the day I'm at my regular job and do the cop thing at night and weekends, so be patient, I will be contacting you, and I thank you for your support.

In addition to the ones that have been mentioned- Jim Crews has a pretty decent book called "Some of the Answer - Carbine" that details a good entry level program. www.marksmansenterprise.com or similar. We started with the NRA's Police Rifle program back in '93 and have progressed from there.
