  • Firearm qualifying?

    With the economy being what it is........plus my age. I have settled in and have decided to become a Reserve Officer. I believe I have found an agency that has a Reserve Academy in the near future. I have been communicating with a Reserve Officer, asking a lot of questions, he is busy with his regular job, family and all. I don't want to be an annoyance or burn him out.....

    So my question....Can someone fill me in on what qualifying actually means? I have a CPL and practice with some regularity. I would like to know what is involved? This agency allows Reserves to use whatever handgun the qualify with.

    After I receive the reserve academy training I may try to get on as a reserve with the County....which has a policy... to use Glock 22

    Thanks

    We fire 50 rounds from multiple lines (25, 15, 7, and 3 yards). We have to fire with both hands, strong hand only, and with weak hand only. Also included is tactical and combat reloads. Every stage is timed and you must fire a certain number of rounds in every evolution. You must score 400 out of a possible 500 to qualify.

      What would be the best way to train/practice for qualifying?

        Where are you? Each State has different courses and some agencies have their own. The State of Florida has a 48 round course for Recruits. And a different course for police officers once they are hired. You could practice the course of fire that you will have to quailfy with and that would help.

        I could send you the Florida course of fire if your in Fla.

        I accept all private messages requesting help or advice, why else bother to be here?

          question answered. You need to train on a surface that is not in perfect condition since the range will not always be perfect.

            I live in Michigan.......I'm getting a little old to be a sworn officer, at least in this economy......However I am planning on attending a reserve academy this January. I have a CPL....and shoot with some regularity....but I would like more specific ideas on how I can be the best prepared.

            Thank for your advice
