Recent former military here. Unless you are an armorer or a SNCO/Officer, you don't get a ton of trigger time with a pistol. I would also bet that the amount of police like encounters that happen in the military are few and far between, especially with a pistol. Not counting PMO or MPs of course. Now if vets want to be cops, I am all for it. I just think its nonsense that people would think a military member or police officer are more qualified to carry then any old joe schmoe down the street. There are a ton of videos out there of police who passed these psych evals who ended up shooting someone they shouldn't have.
