Theo and Oldgrump summarized the issue quite nicely. Some military and some LEOs are very knowledgeable and competent with firearms. Many, maybe most, are not. Having spent 12 yrs on military active duty, I can attest that most of my competence came from 4 yrs on Navy 4th Naval District pistol team, and my own off-duty practice and experience. When I shoot beside local Maryland LEOs (and in the past PA and NJ LEOs) I am unfortunately generally not impressed by them. Read the recent NY Times article about the NYPD (an organization I worked for for four years) limited training and the results. I will never credit an opinion based on the credentials that "I was in the military..." or "I am/was an LEO..." without other evidence that the individual is competent.
