    1. avatar In Memphis says:

  16. avatar Milsurp Collector says:

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

  17. avatar 1911A1 says:

    “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.”

  26. avatar John says:

    Announcing the latest in our Department of Homeland Security reduced hesitation targets. The ever dangerous NYPD officer in violation of having more than seven rounds in his assault pistol. 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.

    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. Citizens are still urged to take caution as stray bullets are still a common concern given the 30 pound trigger found on the NY police issued Glocks.

  53. avatar Chris P says:

    Remember, the safest place is right in front of the target. They never actually hit that.
