Sure, there are many current and former military/law enforcement personnel who have received advanced training and are also well-versed in civilian firearms. But there are also a lot of those who don't have advanced training and haven't studied up on civilian firearms at all, yet present themselves as firearms experts just because of their military/law enforcement experience.
I agree.

Let me tell where I sit before I tell you where I stand ... I am retired L.E. and cops today are less knowledgeable in firearms than the Old Breed. There is a small group in every department who are well versed in the subject, but they seek further knowledge and take extra training, and do their own research and practice. I competed in the World Police and Fire Games, and this group of cops is very skilled and knowledgeable in the gun world.

A lot of the new hires are folks who never fired a gun, been in a fight, or experienced marriage or a domestic dispute!
