I have yet to see a law enforcement qualification where the decent shooters don't easily shoot one ragged hole in the center of the target. How do you account for all of those rounds? How do you know if the last few rounds went through the hole or completely missed the target?

The two most common ways, there may be more:

1. Do enough target changes that you can verify the exact number of rounds fired;
2. The Range Officer is satisfied that all rounds are present and signed off on the target as a "Pass."

Do you have any documentation of a law enforcement qualification course that includes target changes to track rounds fired?

In other words, no one ever "misses".

The most recent course I saw detailing this was the qualification in the NRA Patrol Rifle Instructor course.

If the only hole is a 3"-4" hole in the center of a 24" X 45" target and the hole appears to have the approximate "wear" of the total rounds fired, the Instructor may use his/her judgement. YMMV
