I have been doing firearms training since I was in tenth grade, and fifteen years old.  In those 40 years many new techniques have been developed.  Still there are many truths that have been consistent.  Learning these things will help to insure survival in a shootout.

Most shootouts happen fast.  They happen unexpectedly.  They have few rounds fired.  They are at close range.  Cover is often nearby.  The ability to identify the target is critical.  Being able to use the sights is also important.

Officers should train to win shootouts that are the most likely to happen to them.  They should also be able to respond properly to those unusual situations that also happy regularly.  Training is essential for officers to win.  Officers should train regularly and frequently to stay sharp; that's what the SGT Says.
