The only issue with that stance is, if Sgt Methusala (ret) can't pass the LEOSA qual, he can still carry on a CCH. Just like the bazillion other non switched on LF type citizens carrying. For example: NC passed CCH in 1995. 8 hour class, no mandated COF, no time limits, you dont even have to draw. 30 rounds on a silhouette or bullseye target. Must be fired at 3, 5, 7 yards. Once you get your card, you renew it every five years with no training. The law has changed since inception, so the changes may be unknown to the average bubba. Additionally, once you get the card, you can carry any hand gun you want on it. So, Mr. Fudd could have gotten his CCH in 1995 at age 50 with a .22, then strapped on a .44 magnum and continued carrying it today, into his mid 70s, with zero follow on training or firing a single round. I dont have a problem with it, as it goes with our way of life. Additionally, if Fudd screws the pooch, the legal system will deal with him.
As a trainer, I wouldn't spend an inordinate amount of time on the LESOA qual. I'd give them the standard, let them shoot the course, and if they failed I would send them on their way with the advice to just get a CCH.
