Scott Usry: There is a difference between qualification and combat. In training, we need to expose our officers to the possibility that two rounds will not be sufficient to handle the problem, but a failure drill is not possible. Therefore, as instructors, we vary the number of rounds that our students shoot at the targets during training to break the habit of shooting just two rounds each time.
