True, but it is also easy to criticise when you do not know the whole story. The targets are not static, they turn and you have a short amount of time to fire before they turn out of view again, much of the shooting is quick reactions, not aimed shooting. You also shoot from behind cover, you are not standing out in the open half the time. Shooting while leaning to the left or right is not quite as easy.
The Marine I mentioned (trust me this guy has seen plenty of combat) also ran sims with me during part of the training. Neither of took one shot during any of the sims. As a side note, I also scored 95, 97, and 97 on the range.
Ironically, the people who shot best were all the people who either have a good amount of firearms experience, or actual combat experience. The two military personel that shot poorly were people who were not combat personel (an engineer, and a medic, not a field medic either).
Were there people who shot barely well enough to pass? Unfortunately, yes. Just like the physical training test. There were a number of us that scored 90% or higher, but there were also many who barely passed.
If anyone wants to make a difference in the quality of LEO on your streets, petition your local FOP, politicians, etc... to raise the standards at the academy your LEO receive their training. I know that the instructors at my academy were already pushing the raise the standards.
