@solstickan I will note that police officers in the United States have extreme variation in their training, with some officers (such as county sheriffs) having little pre-employment training while others have more than your half a year. However, almost all of them include firearms training prior to employment, and regular supervised practice thereafter. One of the ranges where I shoot is shut down every couple of weeks so the local officers can get their required practice. I don't say this is true everywhere, but it is common. Additionally, a friend of mine shot competition (Bullseye) for many years with a bunch of officers that happened to belong to his club.
