As much as I like the idea of volunteers etc, I think the potential to get wannabe Rambo types in there is high.
I read the above about cops and to some extent I agree. My issue is that I have friends, none of which were in the military, never been in shape, never did anything all that difficult, that prance around at the BBQs talking about their "skills", bad mouthing the military and LEOs etc.
There are plenty of people out there that think that because they have a membership to Frontsite and take a couple classes a year that that makes them "operators". Sure, I get they have some training, but LEO are under stress everyday. I don't care if they shoot or not, a cop that meets minimum standards is likely to still shoot minimum standards when the SHTF. A Frontsite operator who maxes the standards will likely not hit the broadside of the barn when the SHTF.
I don't mean to insult anyone going to Frontsite. I get that LEOs go, former and present military etc. The people I am talking about, and there are plenty of them, know who they are.
