I’m in a strange part at the end of my career. I’m retired, but not retire. I’ve been on sick leave since May. Last month I finished all of my paperwork and got my retirement ID, but I’m still burning time on the books. My official retirement date is December 31st. Here’s were the problem came up. I did all my retirement paperwork in October and my POST re-qualification is in November. As a retired officer I have to re-qualify POST every year to be able to carry concealed in all 50 states. I wasn’t able to re-qualify this month with the department due to having my retirement paperwork done and being on sick leave. And then There’s the fact that I have a lot of nerve damage in my right arm, shoulder, neck and face. I have muscle spasms in my right shoulder almost 24-7. This is due to residual effects from radiation treatments. Life has been fun. You just got to love it when the odds are stacked against you. So today I re-qualified with the retirees, but I can’t submit my re-qual score as a retired LEO due to my official retirement date is at the end of December. Sounds confusing, doesn’t it. Not to fear. The instructor today is a retired Captain from my department and the Sargent that runs the range is a good friend that I worked the streets with years ago. They just transferred my score to the department roster and everything is good. Now I bet some of you are wondering how good can a person like me shoot. The minimum score for post is 98 out of 120, with 60 rounds fired. I fired a 117 today. I only dropped 3 points at the 25 yard line. I used my Glock 17 Gen4 to qualify. I a-tribute my score to practice. I try to shoot no less then once a week. Most often this is done with a 22 pistol. I find having the Glock 44 to train with a big plus. One should never give up and always push themselves no matter if the odds are stacked against you.
