@dmax. I am getting it without any training whatsoever too! ;)

So the rules of gun safety are...

1: ALWAYS keep the gun pointed at your target until you decide to shoot.
2: ALWAYS keep your finger on the trigger in order to fire a shot more quicklike.
3: ALWAYS keep the gun loaded so you can use it when you need to.
4: All guns are usually unloaded unless you loaded it.
5: Shoot whoever makes you angry in descending order from most annoying to least.

It has nothing to do with trust. It's a right that should not be infringed right? For example, We don't have a right to drive vehicles on public roads, we have that privilege and you must qualify by passing a test and meeting certain requirements. These scenarios are not apples to apples. This topic is for another thread, another time.

On the personal matter of training, I am third generation law enforcement. While I am not a certified LEO, I am very involved in the LE community nonetheless. I am a criminal justice major with 1 year left to graduate. I spent the last six months interning with a federal law enforcement agency, I will be spending the next 3-6 months interning with the local Sheriff's Office. There has been a loaded duty issued Glock 22 in the house as far back as I can remember. My father works K-9 for the local S.O. And the office is conveniently located at the range. Same location as the academy, the EVOC course, our EOD bunker, repo'ed vehicles, and our shoot house. I was a cadet with the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps for 3 years which took me to Parris Island twice and to such trainings as Amphibious Operations Warfare training which took place at Naval Station Norfolk, Ft. Story, and Little Creek Amphib base. A few other places I have trained include the NCO academy for the 3rd ID at Ft Stewart, Admiral Farraguts Academy in St Pete, Fl, and I have only toured Quantico.

On no grounds would I ever try to say I am nearly as qualified as any Mil/LEO personnel. I do however have extensive training for someone of my age who is NOT Mil/LEO. I was afforded wonderful opportunities at the costs of the Navy/Marine Corps and the Department of Justice and I am grateful for that. I have put hundreds of rounds down range through M16 platform weapons, M249, M240B, and thousands of rounds through pistols. I am no where near where I want to be. I plan to use these opportunities and the ones that continue to come to keep building on my skills so that when I do join the military and/or a federal LE org I am
Not only competent with these weapons but proficient.
