Recent FBINA Firearms Training

Has any recent FBI National Academy attendee, say Session 190+, information on the handgun course of fire and whether or not making the "Possible Club" is still seen as being of any importance?

I was in the 183rd. It wasn't important then. They were discouraging attendees from taking the firearms course if your agency carried autos. They pushed firearms towards agencies that had recently transitioned from revolvers to autos. Initially they said the only people who would be allowed to shoot for possible were those taking the firearms course. Later they said no one would be shooting for possible.
The 182nd however did shoot for possible but it was only those taking the course. One of our guys was allowed to take the firearms course even tho we've been autos since 1968. He made the Possible Club.
