However, at around this time, it seems to me that the military in particular, and police departments in general, started reducing actual hands-on training time with weapons; lengthening the time periods between recurrent training; and reducing the standards required for initial and recurrent qualification.
Doesn't hold true in my area, and with the general trend in LE regarding liability and failure to train, I do not believe that is true across the nation. Of course you can still find small agencies who haven't seen the light and think that one range day a year is adequate, but those are going away as younger officers move into management positions and the dinosaurs retire.
