  10. This can’t be from a state of the art police range; the targets aren’t shaped like dogs.

  11. “At the insistence of the clerical staff which is housed on the floor immediately above the range, the distance from firing line to target has been reduced to 3 feet. This should hopefully eliminate most of the random stray bullets coming through the floor into the Secretarial Pool.”

The DHS officer will be scored on figuring out which NYPD officer has the illegal number of bulletproof vest piercing hollow-point bullets in his clip. There is no time limit, as the DHS agent is not likely to be hit with any of these murdering bullets, as the NYPD officers have to use all their hand grip strength to pull the ten pound trigger on their black assault pistols, that and their general lack of training.

  15. Officers enjoy a new twist on sales presentations to police departments, as Marketing Director Johann Schultz both informs and delights them with his Glockenspiel.

  16. Ah, those were the good old days before sufficient air circulation, when a little lead dust in the lungs put hair on your chest.

  25. In order to improve target shooting results, the NY police department decided to move the firing line up to 7 inches instead of the more commonly used 7 feet.
