Using a firearm is probably the least applied skill in policing. Like most people a Police officers career, or life dont evolve around any one aspect of their job. People including the police tend to pay most attention to the duties, and skill's most used. The one piece of equipment officers use the most is an ink pen. The vast majority of officers go their entire career without ever firing a shot in the line of duty. Many even go their career without ever drawing their firearm. Thats not to say that the firearm should be ignored or neglected... Thats the one piece of equipment that must work perfectly every time, and the Officer must be proficient with it at all times.... Hence the firearm training shedual.
