I was reading Paul Weston's book Combat Shooting for Police and I was humbled by the standards it sets for the students. In his descriptions of the PPC, Close Combat Course and Colt's-Indiana University Combat Match Course it seems to demand a much higher degree of accuracy and skill with a DA revolver than most people today are capible with semi-auto pistols. The modern trend in classes seems to be Force on Force, close range combatives and full up scenario training, but is this neglecting a very important aspects of firearm training - the ability to place a bullet into a target at a distance so you can get the most out of your weapon? Do you feel this trend is a reflection of trainers "training students to the fight they will likely face", and therefore a positive evolution in the way training has progressed... A reflection of marksmanship standard's falling for both students (coming in with the skill) and trainers (demanding the skill of their students) and a negative development... Or are people today just teaching a different piece of the puzzle than was highlighted in the past? I know, it kinda sounds like I'm petitioning for an article on your reflections on Handgun Training from 1960's to 2011...and if you chose to go that way, I'd be thrilled...but, seriously...has firearm training progressed, regressed, lost or gained, or just changed with the times - and in your opinion, for better or worse?
