      And just for the sake of clarity, are they going to do forensic testing on everyones weapon and GSR on everyone's hands everyday to verify that they've practiced with HK off duty???

      Just a thought...

          Never heard of that before.

          I shoot mine once in a while at the range, or on my property.

          They also give out practice ammo if you ask for it..

          • thats a load of lies. you cannot use your cbp issued duty ammo, unless qualling on the job. so buy a couple boxes and go to town. you can shoot your gun at a range at any time.

            • What's the purpose of having a weapon on duty when you can't use it off duty.

                To save your life.

                Its not a toy, or a prop.

                You carry it because you are a LEO. A commissioned law enforcement officer.

                  Firearms guy down here said some guy thought he should get paid to shoot/practice off duty.....which I think is CRAP. It behooves us to practice as much as possible to stay proficient.

                  Talk to your FI's.

                  Sounds like local policy to me.

                    They might see somebody at the range.

                    Ex and Nordy have less than two years on the job and therefore are most likely still on probation. Considering that those on probation can pretty much be fired for any or no reason, it is rather foolish to risk losing the job over a trivial matter like shooting off-duty...

                    Just a thought...

                      I need some clarification. Are you asking about carrying off duty, or staying sharp by going to the range to practice on your own time?

                        I bet it's the issue of ammunition or lack thereof.

                          Consider yourself extremely lucky that you were fully processed in that SHORT amount of time, usually people in that timeframe go out with "interim" clearances, since you had to go through a NOPA you are CLEARED.

                          Some go faster. Took written 16 Jan and EOD 9 Jul of the same year. That included getting additional NOPA med clearance from two different doctors (for LASIK and hearing loss). Even that seemed like an eternity. I feel y'alls pain. Things sure have slowed at MHC.

                            You have heard right- it's policy here in SoCal. Don't know about anywhere else. FI said if you want to train with the H&K, rent one at the local range. But I think his face did this ==> while he was saying it. Must've had something in his eye.

                              Were you able to get the reason why this is?

                              I find this extremely fascinating.

                                Yes, I must have been lucky during my hiring process. Your time will come. Good luck!
