    Week 359: Original Air Marshall Pistol Qual

    Week 359: Original Air Marshall Pistol Qual

    Results may be posted until March 14th, 2020.

    Range: 7 yards
    Target: Three (3) FBI QIT, IPSC metric, or IDPA targets
    Start Position: Varies
    Rounds Fired: 30

    This exercise will require you to engage multiple full size targets. The original Federal Air Marshal Tactical Pistol Course was designed to test FAMs immediately before a mission. The test has to be shot cold (no prior shooting that day). An Air Marshal who could not pass the TPC was not allowed to fly!

    You can download a score sheet with complete instructions here: http://pistol-training.com/wp-conten...TC-FAM-TPC.pdf

    1. Draw from concealment and fire one shot. Repeat. Total time for the two runs combined must be no more than 3.30 seconds.
    2. From the ready, fire two shots. Repeat. Total time for the two runs combined must be no more than 2.70 seconds.
    3. From the ready, six rounds on target. Time limit is 3.00 seconds and no shot-to-shot split can be greater than 0.60 seconds. (you do not repeat this string)
    4. From the ready, one shot, speed/in-battery reload, and one more shot. Repeat. Total time for the two runs combined must be no more than 6.50 seconds.
    5. From the ready, one round each at two targets at least 3yd apart. Repeat. Total time for the two runs combined must be no more than 3.30 seconds.
    6. Begin facing uprange concealed. On the buzzer, turn to your right and fire one round on each of three targets. Repeat a second time turning to your left. Total time for the two runs combined must be no more than 7.00 seconds.
    7. Begin with one round in the gun at the ready. On the buzzer fire, drop to one knee, reload from slidelock, and fire a second shot. Repeat. Total time for the two runs combined must be no more than 8.00 seconds.

    Scoring is as follows:

    Must finish within the indicated time limit for each string or you fail.

    If all of the times are achieved, you must also score 135 points out of 150 to pass.

    Shots completely inside the bottle (Q target), IPSC A/B/C zones, or IDPA 0/-1 zones score 5 points each. Hits that touch the line do not count.

    Shots that hit the target but don't score in the 5-point zones are 2 points each.

    Shots that miss the target earn no points.

    Please report the following when you post your results in this thread:

    Pistol, holster, concealment (optional) used
    Pass or Fail

    Well I really screwed that up! Thank you for the correction. If a mod can change the title that would be nice, but I can't and it's too late for me to edit the post either.

    PF9C
    AIWB holster, BFG ten speed double mag pouch
    T shirt w/Polartec top

    145 pts (29 good hits, one miss)
    FAIL, as I was over par time on the two stages requiring reloads. Obviously my reloads need work!

    Total time: 33.54

    Strings:
    1 - 2.76
    2 - 2.34
    3 - 2.10
    4 - 8.44 (fail, 6.5 par)
    5 - 2.58
    6 - 5.84
    7 - 9.48 (fail, 8.0 par)

    I've shot this before, with similar results, did okay on time and hits, but sucked at the reloads. It's something I've been too lazy to work on, but should! (Dry, of course, with dummy rounds).

    Selfishly, I'll admit I like how forgiving this drill is, that is, not requiring only "A"/-0 hits.

    Gen5 19MOS with ACRO&TLR7A mounted, out of a Tenicor ARX LUX holster, concealed under a fleece vest. Shot on “Q” coke bottle targets I found.
    “Fail”; one round off bottle during 180 turn string-I just fired it before the gun got there. I have not practiced turns in months, and it shows. 145 points with the miss.
    S1: 3.21 S2:2.08 S3:2.21 S4:6.05 S5:2.58 S6:6.78(-1 hit)S7:6.95
    So, I am content with almost all, to include the string 2 two shots at just over 1 second. A little practice on the turns, and I should be good to go.
    As an aside, at least a few strings would lend themselves to “low light”. I’m eagerly awaiting a JM holster for a TLR8, and might put it through the paces on this(after I pass...)
