The Secret Service Qualifies with the M1 Pencil


Secret service ammo stocks for qualification.

Secret Service has secured the necessary ammo stocks for qualification: 1 x M1 Pencil No.2 per Agent.

Reporter Ronald Kessler, in a much longer piece on the failings of the Secret Service these days, notes that there’s a reason that they all seem to pass periodic weapons and PT requals:

When it comes to firearms requalification and physical fitness, the Secret Service either doesn’t allow agents time to fulfill the requirements or asks agents to fill out their own test scores.

Sure, ’cause we can totally expect a bureaucrat to be honest about some facet of job performance he’s struggling with, right? Especially if it’s a high-stakes qualification that could lead to unpleasant career consequences. Right?

    So what then would happen if the President gets blown away by some Muzzie, the Secret Service proves to be a paper tiger on account of their carboniferous qualifications, and the bad guy gets away?

    Considering who they’re protecting, my “Meh” factor is running pretty high these days.

    Then I remember who the Veep is.

    I really could care less about the imperial presidency, the first story written in that crappy cage liner time magazine tells me the left lives in its own little bubble, too bad for them, horrible for us. Doesn’t matter if a certifiable left wing kook high on Daily Kos propaganda goes off the reservation and takes down a messiah it will still be our fault, that is the default setting of our overlords, and till we nut up and decide we need to have lay the heavy pimp hand on those kooks that is what we will deal with.
