My next stage design

This is the video of the NYC cops shooting the Empire State Building murderer and unintentionally, perhaps via ricochets, shooting nine innocent people.



One of my stage designs for next weekend will include this scene. I’ll post it when I get it finished. This will probably be sometime Sunday night.


Update (Saturday 8/25/2012): I finished it earlier than I expected. It is available for your viewing pleasure here. Please leave a comment if you see changes that should be made.

  1. I wonder what the mom who abandon her kid (in blue, top right) when the shooting started is thinking about now WRT her reaction.

  2. One thought (and I don’t know if it’s allowable by USPSA rules or not): since the second cop (the one represented by boxes A and B) appears to be firing one handed in the video, perhaps shots on T1 should be required to be strong hand only.

  3. @Jake, I thought about that but didn’t want to require a bad tactic. Getting off the line of attack and putting distance in between them and the shooter is in general a good tactic but makes the shooting more difficult.

  4. When you get done with all of these, you might want to look into the San Francisco PD academy qualifying course.

    “They need to start raising the bar during the academy. Our academy qualifications are 10 times harder than the normal qual we do every few months. After that, they need to do make department rangemasters able to diagnose shooting problems rather than just mark targets with chalk. When I went through rangemaster school we had to qualify with guns we have never shot before, we qualified with the old revolvers they issued back when Jesus wore sandals, and then they would have us switch guns with random people and qualify with those. Our final rangemaster qualification course was a pass or fail, one chance only course that included 10 double action shots at the 50 yard line, weak hand barricade. Needless to say many people didn’t pass, and the ones who did pass know the fundamentals.”
