    How close to para military do they run the academy. Is it like screaming in your face drill instructor stuff?
    From what I've read & heard - no, it's not that bad. No hardcore exercise, etc. Crappy food, expensive phone calls and no doors on the guys stalls to crap.

            No, not at all... it supposedly once was, and they're also supposedly trying to get back to that. As for my class, the last graduating class, the closest thing to military was marching, and room inspections and even those were done on a severely dumbed down level.. not talking ****, but it's only 6 weeks and you can't spend to much time teaching non military the military way.

                  No outside food or beverage and no electronics, including phones. I've heard no books too.

                  • Can someone explain the firearm qualification? That's really the only thing I'm nervous about.

                      • 3 weapons to qualify
                        .38
                        Mini 14
                        12 gauge shot gun
                        The first week you take a written test. You must pass or you are done-- no do overs! You get two chances to pass fireams and the instructors will help you and recognize your issue. You will do fine! I will tell you at first I could not get the revolver right at all I thought I was not going to qualify. They had me practice with some issue with sight alignment anyways the next day I passed and I passed the other weapons with no issues. Now when I qualify at my institution I shoot expert. Don't worry overthinking it will make you fail.

                          Okay cool. So the written is the very first week over firearms? What's considered passing? Is it things you will hear over and over in class? And what are the distances you shoot at? Sorry for all the questions. I'm just trying to get as much info I can.

                          • The firearms will be separate from your class test I can't remember when we took that but it was in the first week... But firearms you will have the class on Thursday all day and the test on Friday it's basically over the parts of the gun, safety, and range rules... You would have to dig through the feeds I believe I gave more detail
