    The problem is that horses are now doing the courses.

    Ironically enough an old school mate, and ex-STF member, is an instructor for one of the winning UAE SWAT teams.

    STF equipment including firearms are "well used" and the "old dogs" have mostly moved on with just a few still in STF. Management of STF also more worried about fitness tests than training for actual situations. Yes you need fitness, but you need to be able to operate, not just run. STF uses a lot of HK products and battling to get spare parts or replacement weapons. Budgets are also not what it used to be.

    Must say to my Brothers disgust few years ago, a Female BEE STF member beat him by far in an IPSC Production League at Frontier. He did not see that coming.
