Younggunz, you make it sound like any retired officer can go find any NRA instructor and shoot in front of him. Do you have a better source than Wikipedia? Wikipedia does not override what the law says, which is:

(4) during the most recent 12-month period, has met, at the expense of the individual, the standards for qualification in firearms training for active law enforcement officers, as determined by the former agency of the individual, the State in which the individual resides or, if the State has not established such standards, either a law enforcement agency within the State in which the individual resides or the standards used by a certified firearms instructor that is qualified to conduct a firearms qualification test for active duty officers within that State;
In my state, the state does have standards. That automatically means that no retired officer living in this state can seek out an independent/private instructor to qualify. Our state police have established a very limited program, which they run only one or two days per year, for officers who retired into this state from other states or whose former departments won't requalify them annually. The candidates have to go to our state police firing range and shoot our state police qualifying course. As far as I know, the passing score is the same as for state police officers -- retirees don't get a lower threshold.
