Thread: RCMP training in wake of Moncton shootings

    RCMP training in wake of Moncton shootings

    RCMP Chief Supt. Eric Stubbs said officers will be provided with adequate ammunition for training each year. All members are now entitled to a free annual allotment of practice ammunition in order to remain proficient with their firearms skills. “This includes 300 carbine rounds, 200 9-mm pistol rounds and 25 shotgun rounds,” he said.

    Odd, since it's obvious to anyone who knows anything about the subject that it's easier to shoot carbines than it is pistols, that they went heavier on the carbine ammo.

    So the implication of this is that they didn't get ANY "free" practice ammo before?

    Most jobs don't give out free ammo in my experience.

    That is much more common that many outside the profession realize. Varies from agency to agency, but there is no industry standard or best practice for ammo outside of formalized and regimented training and qualifications.
    Anything I post is my opinion alone as a private citizen.

    When this happened I was listening to it over their radio. Very messed up day.

    That said those officers were very undergunned and they lost officers due to not only poor tactics but being under equipped. Badguy had a 308 I believe.

    Do you work as an officer in Canada?

    My agency used to allot 50 rounds of "proficiency" ammunition/agent/month. That went away recently, so now we allocate no ammunition for agents to use for private training - all ammunition is used during quarterly training days.

    Think of how baller they're going to be with a shotgun after 25 rounds.
