      I recently performed at training class what is now one of my favorite exercises. It was conducted with our sidearms and shotguns and three targets.
      The scenario was a warrant with forced entry. If you have the shotgun your are the first through the door. The instructor would yell out which direction the threat is as youadvanced and you engaged it with what you felt necessary. With my sidearm I fired two to center mass or just once with the shotgun. Sometimes the instructor would call a reason for retreat and we would retreat backwards from cover to cover and while he would yell out the direction of the threat. This is one of my favorite drills now because it included moving white shooting, multiple threat engagement and use of cover while retreating. All these principles are rarely taught by my department.

        What about finding some IDPA matches in your area? Although it's handgun only, shooting on the move, multiple targets, use of cover, tactical reloads, shooting in low light, etc, etc is stressed in every match. It's a great way to sharpen skills/keep skills sharp for LEO and civi alike. A good course or two per year (via your dept or on your own $$$) and regular IDPA matches is a great general combo. IDPA is not perfect, but it WAY better then standing at the 10 yard line at the range static...
