I'm aware of Paul Weston and point shooting in the 1960's and today, I keep reading about Lt. Frank McGee and him teaching the NYPD what he called turret Isoceles during his tenure. I believed in this until during the Diallo trial, officer Sean Patrick Carroll and Edward McMellon demonstrating how they shot at Diallo and Carroll was clearly using Chapmann, while McMellon was doing Weaver. I don't really feel like randomly walking up to an officer on the subway platform and asking what they are teaching while commuting to work so I will ask here. What are the teaching up at Rodman's Neck these days? Is it still Isoceles? Is it Chapman-Weaver, or Classic Weaver? What are they learning tactically?

That seems outright strange to me because the entire combat world seems to be changing from Weaver to Isoceles for aimed fire! Negative advancement? The FBI I heard got rid of Chapman.
