    90% of cops cant shoot straight – Napolcom exec

    If a Police officer draws his gun, duck or take cover.

    90% of police officers cannot shoot straight or clean their guns properly, according to recent firearms proficiency tests, said an official of the National Police Commission. “Of the country’s 125,000 policemen and women, 90 percent cannot shoot straight and have difficulty just taking care of their guns,” Napolcom Commissioner Luis Mario General told reporters.

    “Based on PNP data, 10 percent passed the firing tests,” General said, adding that most of them ranked barely above level of “novice.”

    During his visits to provincial police units, he learned that police officers did not have enough target practice sessions. “They only get to practice firing once in a blue-moon because bullets are expensive,” said General on the sidelines of a firing competition among police generals in Camp Crame. He noted that some police officers admitted that they did not know how to clean their guns.

    “The PNP units around the country hold quarterly marksmanship training to update police officers’ shooting skills,” said Chief Supt. Ireno Bacolod, PNP Firearms and Explosives Division chief. “It’s a necessity. It’s for their protection and the protection of our own people because police officers might hit those who should not be hit.”

    Bacolod explained that the figures were based on the PNP marksmanship test that uses standards of the International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA).

    With this fact, will you trust your local police officer to protect you?

    Why? Is this only your basis that police can protect the general public? For you if a police man is a good shooter he can protect you? Meaning if there is a criminal or act of crime the police should draw his gun from the hip and shoot the culprit and no more consideration of other arrest procedures?

    I think it's only one of the qualities, take a look of what had happened when the family of Ted Failon's wife was arrested, is it in the proper procedure? Is that the way how the police handle suspects? Is that the way they show to us how they can protect the people?

    Hindi lang sa bilis pag bunot ng baril o gaano ka asentado, asentado ka nga mali naman pala ang binaril hehehehe..... hay naku ka.

    Hahahaha!
    The Deputy Design Manager made a great(?) comment.
    Are you really a "Manager"? Hahahaha! Can't you not comprehend the gist of what i've posted? Well, maybe that's the reason why you're just the "Deputy".

    Hey Mr. Technical Man, nowhere in my post says that a "good shooter" is the ultimate criteria.

    Allow me to educate you Mr. Technical Man. A prominent tool for doctors to perform their job is the stethoscope. And everybody expects that doctors are well-versed in the usage of their tool. Note this very well Mr. Technical Man, am not saying that the stethoscope is the "only tool" of doctors. For tailors, the sewing machine is their prominent tool. The pistol or revolver is the prominent tool of the policemen. With this fact, the public expects that policemen are well-versed in cleaning/maintaining the servicebility of their tool and of course using their tool. That's the gist of my post Mr. Technical Man.

    Well, i wonder if you're well-versed with your tool. Hahahaha!
