What's up everyone?

I'm currently in a law enforcement academy and we were at the range this week. This was my first time shooting, and I really enjoyed it. We had a week of classroom instruction before we hit the actual range. So we were well prepared. We had to qualify at 25, 15, 10,7, 5, and 1 yards. Our duty weapon is the HK USP 40.

I can see myself getting into shooting often so I guess I am looking for advice on how to learn more after the academy.

Thanks a lot.

Depending on you Dept. size/budget you may be able to attend training on their time/dime if you are lucky and play your cards right. You can always attend training on your own dime as well.

Out of curiosity, what academy are you going through?

Welcome to the Forums - Training is key to anything and as a public service officer I have to say its vital for your survival as well.
Point hit the nail on the head, Dept size and budget really play a role as you can get into training courses when they become available.

Get a few books and read up while off training. some manuals don't touch on some subjects you might be interested in but never knew they existed
Amazon.com: The Modern Day Gunslinger: The Ultimate Handgun Training Manual (9781602399860): Don Mann, David Grossman: Books
Amazon.com: Tactical Pistol Shooting: Your Guide to Tactics & Techniques that Work, 2nd Edition (9781440204364): Erik Lawrence, Mike Pannone: Books

Amazon.com: Surgical Speed Shooting: How To Achieve High-Speed Marksmanship In A Gunfight (9781581601435): Andy Stanford: Books

Im not telling you to buy these, these are just something to read if you are interested, If someone has a few books they would like to share as well please post up ones that you feel you got allot of information from.
