  • Are any "sworn officers" involved in competition shooting sports?

    I tried USPSA competition shooting last year and will try IDPA this season. I only saw one officer (he used his duty gear) at the matches. Do any fulltime officers participate in the shooting sports?

    I will sometimes go to IDPA....more for the practice than anything....the only real competition stuff I go to is trap, skeet, ect....not that I am any good....just fun to go to

      I shoot regularly with LEO at IDPA. What I find rather scary is how often I beat them.

        I discovered that as well in USPSA. Unfortunately, some of those shooters (who make fun of cop shooting scores) are never tested in police shooting scenario's. Competition shooting is fast. But simply putting holes in cardboard, differs quite abit as we LEO's know when tested in shoot or don't shoot the suspect(s). I wish I discovered the sport when I was in my twenties. Poor eyesight and slower reflexes certainly work against one who competes in a sport built for speed and accuracy.

          I used to shoot competetive pre LE and early LE, but I really don't seem to have the time now with everything that I have going on. I have been teaching for years, mostly LE nowadays and I am always the first to admit that quite a bit of LE instruction is behind the curve. Many departments are stuck in a time warp for several reasons. Our guys try to stay progressive and take good info from whatever venue, civillian or LE which is not necessarily the norm.

          There are a few LE competetive shooters around here but the fact is that the greater majority of LEO's are not gun enthusiasts to the point that they wish to compete. For work, I shoot 2-3 days per week, sometimes more and quite frankly with 2 small kids and other family activities I just don't have the time or desire right now to do it outside of work.
