say training instructor william kern used his own gun instead of a training weapon during a training exercise. kern's defense attorney will try to prove he was supposed to have a live weapon to ensure the safety of the officers and cadets. at least one person who is authorized to carry a firearm must be armed with a live weapon. court documents also reveal the training gun and the real weapon are roughly the same size, weight and measurement. the only difference is that the grip of the training weapon is blue. any individual gripping a training device in the same fashion as they would grip a live weapon would not see the entirety of the blue grip. the effective muscle memory and recall of an officer of 17 years such as defendant kern would cause that officer to engage in the same mechanics of withdrawing, aiming and firing a training device like they would a live weapon. eyewitness news found though other police departments used training weapons entirely
