which is why they have the "Officer" class. That's where the Officers compete.

Don't know about you guys, but i'm actually RELIEVED he knew what he was doing! I shot it once several years ago when they had classes--must've been 4 years ago? and some of the cops out there were downright crappy--having trouble out of the holster, not knowing what to do with a GLOCK jam, and of course, lack of accuracy. There was one guy, I can't remember his name but it was Italian--was quite the speed demon and damn accurate. I wouldn't doubt it if was the same guy you saw.

i wouldn't worry too much about it, Wolfpack. I've learned that as good of a shot as i think I am, there's always someone better

ETA: i shot B class. That's some balls to say "yep, put me in A class, please."

Can't comment on Joe, but you haven't actually seen Jim shoot, have you?

It's fun to have a challenge. When I did Boulder's 3 gun matches, i used the only shotgun I owned--a 6+1 Mossy 590 PUMP gun against the 10 shot tubed 1100s. I've always disliked game guns in those kinds of matches

ETA: Better to have seen the guy Wolf did on the street than THIS officer:

I'm not a member, but I'm very familiar with the matches and the members. I actually used to be one of the Cadets that ran out and painted the steel between matches.

Also, being a Police Officer is nothing more than a job. they work 40 hours a week just like the rest of us. I think they are entitled to be "regular guys" off duty. If he happens to be required to qualify 4 times a year, that doesnt change anything. Police Officers are only trained to shoot once. It's up to them to keep up on their skills unless they're in a specialized unit.
