MOC Obtains MCOLES Active Duty Firearms Standard

MCOLES (The Michigan Commission On Law Enforcement Standards) posted their firearm standards on the internet.  The only problem is you need a password to view the encrypted PDF.  According to the page, their agent, Danny Rosa, will only provide you the encryption password if you can provide your MCOLES number to demonstrate you are an active law enforcement officer.

No worries, through the magical powers of FOIA, MOC is here to help...
