I understand that most LEO's probably aren't gun guys.
I don't know what an annual qualification entails, but I don't see how once a year "practice" builds any kind of proficiency. Especially when auto loaders are so prevalent. His duty sidearm is a Glock 19.

I am not so sure I agree. Knowing this gentleman as I do I hope he never needs to use his weapon on many different levels.
