"LOP are designated as the only shotguns authorized for ED based on compatibility with ED existing shotgun inventory, certified armor and combat training and protocol, maintenance, and parts."
I understand that there are definitely schools in this country that are almost like war zones, probably more-so after these last few years of economic depression. But are we really at the point where DoE officers have training and protocols for 'combat training' to go along with their shotguns and armor? Aren't there a number of less intense training programs, like bank-security-guard-level? or hell even riot-police-training-level would be better than take-what-you-learned-in-Fallujah-and-apply-it-here-in-this-inner-city-school-Combat-Training....no?
And I understand that this is a document from the gun manufacturer and not from the schools dept itself, but I'm very interested to learn exactly how the term 'combat training' made it into that document.
