  • Rifle training course

    I am a Prichard, Al police officer, and lately we have had a couple of shoot outs, with the bad guy using SKS type rifles.
    We have asked the acting chief and captains if we can carry .223 rifles, and they have replied yes, but our department does not have a rifle qualification course.
    Is there someplace that I can call or write to that has a rifle certification course guidelines that our department can adopt?

    Most of the big name schools offer a course, but you can probably get an NRA law enforcement rifle operator class cheaper and faster. Contact NRA and see who is in your area.

          You may also look into neighbouring jurisdictions to see if any of them have a rifle qualification course.

          I don't think I would recommend adopting service rifles (for legal reasons) if you don't have a certified instructor teaching the course. We have too many Lawyers out there to make self training worth it.

          What would be reasonable request of your department is to assign an officer to go to an NRA Instructor Development school. You could then get your own qualification course going locally, and probably save your department a lot of
          money on travel, and lodging for individual officers. See:

          http://www.nrahq.org/law/training/instructorschools.asp

          They have Patrol Rifle, Select Fire, and Precision (scoped) rifle courses.

          The initial course you select could be picked on the type of shooting you'd best "guess" would fit your needs. After taking the first course, your designated officer can go to the other two courses to maintain their instructor status. BTW, after retirement, these schools "should" quallify you
          for a civilian instructor in most jurisdictions for a license to teach armed security AND get you in the door for certain types of Federal Instruction roles.

          At any rate...

          After you qualify I would encourage you to look into local civilian rifle and shotgun matches. Some are VERY good training.

            The SigArms Academy in New Hampshire has an excellent Law Enforcement Rifle Instructor course. It's one week long and they provide all the ammo. You can bring any kind of rifle with you - it doesn't need to be a SigSauer.

            If you need help convincing your department to approve rifles, or you need some lesson plans, go to mobrien316.com and I may be able to help.
