It is not so much the training as it is the leadership.
Cops are just employees, PERIOD.
They do what they are told just like you and I did when we were employees.
They do not protect and serve, anybody, but the Bosses ass.
The problem is the BOSS!
Once you figure that out, then act accordingly.
My anti-flinch drill. Load 5 magazines with 4 rounds ball and 1 dummy in various sequence. Shuffle and place under towel on bench. Load without looking to see where the dummy is in the magazine. Fire until dummies is discovered in the sequence. Observe what happens and try to correct on the next magazine. Repeat for 25 years to get desired 10 ring count.
It's the Military. It doesn't have to make sense.
Hawaii will claim that the mental health or age 21 checks would have worked here. NY state laws are weak compared to us.
the POI being low is probably due to a flinch, or rather you are wired to shoot 9mm out of your VP9
this a guess on my part. but I believe you have muscle memory tuned to your VP9 and 9mm after shooting tens of thousands of rounds with this combo. the grip angle is different, the 45acp is different, the weight of the gun is different
my first 1911 I was shooting way low at 25 yards. maybe 6-8 inches consistently. I was certain that the front sight was too tall making me shoot low. threw on a laser bore sighter and just pointed it at the wall, in a safe direction of course, as I pulled the trigger I could see the laser move low. then I knew it wasn't the front sight that was causing the low POI, it was me and my flinch
I'm not saying this is what you are doing, but maybe. different gun, different ammo, different grip angle
that's my guess
Why do you have your gun cocked (assume chamber empty) with safety on? It will be just fine with chamber empty and hammer down.
One thing to also notice is the different trigger mechanisms. Lever/pivot vs straight back. The low POI is a headscratcher though.
Good that you're shooting it, and shooting it quite a lot and not babying it. Good that it fed the JHP well, and the variety of FMJ you shot.
