Front Sight Mail Bag: Response to Monday Blog Post

April 8th, 2009  

Dr. Piazza,

As a former Marine and ex-cop in California (1986-1996), I can tell you from first-hand experience that the officers featured here who acted in the proper aggressive and decisive manner are the exception while those who were tactically unsound are the norm.

You have the privilege of working with a small sample of cops who recognize the need for superior firearms training and come to your facility to sharpen their skills. Unfortunately, the average police officer is lazy, relatively unskilled and even content to avoid confrontations if they can, even if it means letting problems fester and erupt later on at the public’s peril.

Even more alarming is the way tactically sound and productive officers are harassed and mis-managed by those in administrative positions within their own departments. I’m a veteran of three (3) on-duty shootings (all ruled justified) and was always taken aback at how my actions were meticulously scrutinized by men and women who wore the same uniform as I did but were, for the most part, put on the “fast track” toward promotion because of Affirmative Action or having an advanced college degree. Each review board I sat before consisted of officers who’d never been in a shooting and had spent very little time doing actual “street work”.

Anyway, I sincerely appreciate all you are doing to raise the bar in firearms proficiency and most especially your crusade to save our precious gun rights. I hope to be attending at least one of your courses soon.

Take care and God Bless.

Bradley W.
