The FBI Shooting Qualification (New)

In 2013 the FBI updated their pistol qualification to what they believe is more applicable to what a field agent might face.  One of the biggest changes of the qualification are the distances.  The newest qualification goes from 3-25 meters while the older standard shot at distances out to 50 meters.
