13Congratulations to Sergeant Ward Smith of the Kansas City Police Department for earning F.A.S.T. Challenge Coin #13 during a gathering of some alumni under the watchful eye of SLG who was given permission by Ernest Langdon to put Sgt. Smith through the test.

Sgt. Smith shot the test using his issued Glock 22 pistol, duty ammunition, and his issued Safariland 295 holster.

The drill was shot three times, completely cold (no previous shooting that day). His scores were 4.68, 4.73, and 4.89 seconds all clean. The current rules require the first and at least one other run be clean under 5 seconds, but Ward did all three just to make it look easy.

Train hard & stay safe! ToddG

  9. The real reward from this was the opportunity to work (a lot) on all the little things that go into being able to be successful. Thank you to Todd, SLG, Tom and everyone who has been so generous with their time and expertise. I’m humbled to be in your company.

  10. Sgt. Smith, I always love watching you shoot. It’s the most beautiful thing to watch. You always make it look so very easy, but we all know it’s not. Be safe.
