  • NYPD Firearms Qualifications

    Hello. Can anyone give me a description of the firearms qualification course that NYPD recruits have to pass at the academy? Thanks.

    All I can say is.. you shoot 50 rounds and each bullet that is hit within the shaded target area is worth 2 points. There is a score you must surpass to qualify.

    The specifics may not be secret squirrel material, but its not for everyone to know how NYPD does their training on an open board.

            I've been going to a range trying to keep my skills up. It has got to be interesting. I would imagine a lot of people have never picked up a pistol before entering the academy. That's got to be a pretty tough job for the firearms instructors.

              In actuality, it is probably easier for the range instructors to train Tommy or Sally, who have never handled a pistol, to meet NYPD standards than it is to break Mary or Joe's bad habits learned on their own.

                Dino, I was just about to say that.

                Its much easier to train someone who never fired a gun before, than it is to break bad habits from people who basically trained themselves.

                  Yea i guess that's a pretty good point. I dont know though i would think that having some familiarization would make the training a lot easier. In the military all the good ol' boys picked things up a lot quicker than the people from NYC (not counting those from crown heights ). Yea they had bad habits but it seemed that they were above the learning curve somewhat.

                      someone correct me if I'm wrong but the reason why its easier to train new shooters is because with experienced shooters develop muscle memory, they can grab a gun and automatically go into their own taught stance, grip, and whatever else they tought themselves. It usually takes 2,000 shots using a new method to break those habits, and to make the new method muscle memory.

                              Actually it is easier for the Instructors because they don't have BAD habits like people that shoot on a steady basis.
