This qualification is for Retired Law Enforcement Officers, who had arrest powers, are retired, and are in good standing with their agency.  As such, they are allowed to carry a concealed weapon in all 50 states (except in places where this is specifically prohibited, such as Federal Buildings).


HR 218 “The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act,” was signed into law on July 22, 2004.  As a result, an individual who qualifies under LEOSA does not require a state-issued permit for carrying a concealed firearm in any state, including that person's home state.

SPARTAN INTERNATIONAL CONSULTING GROUP stopped using the Army L Course of Fire after our legal research team felt that it did not completely meet the federal law requirement for qualification see below:  


The individual must qualify in the recent 12-month period, has met, at the expense of the individual, the standards for qualification in firearms training for active law enforcement officers, as determined by the former agency of the individual, the State in which the individual resides or, if the State has not established such standards, either a law enforcement agency within the State in which the individual resides or the standards used by a certified firearms instructor that is qualified to conduct a firearms qualification test for active duty officers within that State;

In order to successfully qualify, retired officers must successfully pass the State qualification as detailed in 11-47-15.1
