Being a retired detective for LAPD this caught my interest. It's interesting but I don't see how anyone could knowingly say that the average shooter could not pass the basic LAPD qualification course! Almost anyone could pass it with a minimal of training. Now specialized units like surveilance units and SWAT have considerably higher standards, the basic course is not that difficult. The way they have it laid out is basically correct. The other information is also basically correct. You begin at the 7 yard line and their are more head shots but it is accurate in every other way as best as I recall. I did retire in 2005 so they might have changed it a little but certainly not much. http://www.guns.com/debunking-the-lapds-handgun-qualification-myth-11196.html Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
