What a fucking drama queen.
Try doing it over again with a duty holster duty belt and body armor like a LEO.
They act like a police qualification course is suppose to be the pinnacle of marksmanship.

From the point of view this video was done for it doesn’t freaking matter. Obviously this man is deaf so I will write out what I stated at the beginning of the video.
This came about because a reader of his blog said the LAPD qualification course would be beyond the realm of capability of most non-law-enforcement shooters.
I don’t wear an LEO duty belt, body armor, every day so why the hell should I have to qualify with it? The whole thing came about because of the reaction of someone who supports gun control. She argued that the police meet a high standard of marksmanship and that we wouldn’t be able to match it. I matched it, in my everyday carry gear.
Being a man of my word though, if you have a pile of duty gear you don’t want and are willing to donate to the cause, I will shoot the course again.
Further, there’s not running involved in the course so the extra weight doesn’t matter, the most is limited mobility, except there is only one stage that requires a draw so even then that doesn’t really matter
I do love AR15.com though, it does provide hours of entertainment and reminds me why I don’t usually bother with forums.
What ND? It may have been a mike but it wasn’t an ND. ND would have been over the berm or around the 180. Try again there sparky!
Why do 90% of the people who make youtube videos involving guns have to have unusual choices in hair style and dress.
Don’t wear sunglasses or hats when talking to the camera, especially big sunglasses and Australian cowboy hats. The only thing he was missing was a duster and I bet he owns it.
Is that no-sideburn beard to keep his chin warm?
At least he’s well spoken. Dude is dressed for radio interviews. – Lomshek
At which point a couple people join in with Spartacus-boy’s rant. I wore the hat and glasses because it’s easier than trying to find someone to do camera make up to take the glare off my head (I am bald, not by choice) and face. Sorry my facial hair isn’t what you would like either, didn’t know I needed to call out for your approval. Guess next time I’ll just wear a ball cap, aviators, a wife beater, and trim completely down to a goatee. Sorry I didn’t want to have facial hair like everyone else in the world regularly has. Pardon me for offending you!
At least a friend had my back:
Now there is one post that did get my attention:
If this wasn’t close the LAPD course of fire, please supply me with the latest version in the comments. As for LAPD duty gear and firearms, see the comment above and the goal. The argument is that every day shooters, who don’t regularly wear LAPD duty gear while carrying, couldn’t pass the course.
That said, I live a block from an FFL, send a duty arm to him and send me the duty gear and I’ll run it. Put up or shut up. If you’re willing to put up, contact me.
Overall though I was pleased to see the AR15.com thread for the most part other than the few outliers was positive and many were correcting others pointing out what the actual purpose of this exercise was. -B]
