I was just curious as to what other LE agencies are doing for pistol qualification around the US and the world.



Here at my department in Idaho we do a course of fire consisting of:



25 yards- 9 rounds kneeling, 6 rounds standing, 3 round standing (support hand), with a magazine exchange (60 second time limit)

15 yards- 18 rounds standing with a magazine exchange (35 second time limit)

7 yards- 12 rounds standing with magazine exchange (20 second time limit)

3 yards- 8 rounds (singlstrongd stong hand) 4 rounds (single hand support hand) with a magazine exchange (15 second time limit)



FBI Q Target

60 rounds total with a score of 54 to pass (90%)



This is more stringent than the state standard (they use a standard TQ-21 target and you use a 4x4 vertical support as a barricade at 25 yards)

Posted below is Georgia's state course. It is a "revolver neutral" course; so, magazines are loaded to six rounds each to have all of the reloads at the proper places in the course.

Here is the course:

That is an interesting course of fire. I like the moving from cover element, and moving back. This is something I feel Idaho lacks. I work a lot on moving and shooting during my personal shooting drills, but it is very rarely used during training.

The range is considered “hot” unless called safe by the range master. Ammo management is your responsibility. Alibis will only be given for weapons system malfunctions if the shooter works through the malfunction. Running out of ammo is not a malfunction.

Shot on this target:





Hits in the target area are 2 points. Outside are 0. Qualification is 80 minimum.
