Short answer is no. Proficiency in an after the action report will be very subjective. Viewpoints vary wildly, and the police know this. They don't want anythng but the facts. Several years ago, my wife and I were walking in a local park with our welsh corgi on the leash. An off the leash pit bull charged and attacked our corgi. I had in my hand a heavy hormbeam hiking stick. The pit bull got by me and grabbed our dog and I came down on the pit's head with evrything I had. It killed the pit bull. The owner, a shaved head tattooed young man came cahrging me, cursing and yelliing he was going to kill my graybeared old , and making no mistake in his intentions. I used the same stick, and when it was over, mr. tatoo had a broken left arm, and a broken left rib, and some other injuries. The police charged him with having a vicious dg off leash in public, and arrested him att he local ER. He started a lawsuit against me for the killing of his pit bull, and attacking him. It came to court, and the fast eddie type of lawyer he had pleaded that I was the one out looking for trouble as I was carrying a club. The judge took about 20 seconds to review the case, looked at the police report, and then tossed the whole thing out of his court with a warning for the whiplash willy lawyer not to ever clog up his court agains with garbage. The judge made a statement that I will never forget. He said my stick was not a prepared weapon. That made the difference. It was a normal object for the circumstance, walking around. It wasn't some zoowie mall ninja slug shot weapon that every police officer knows about. The judges have seen many of them, and they know the difference. The proficiency of my using the stick never came into question. It was just a blunt force instrument that just happened to be in my hand when I was out walking. Now if I had a padlock and a rope, or some other items that had no place at that time in my possession, it could have been different. Or a sturdy bicycle lock and no bicycle around. No matter what you use, it has to appear to be a normal object that anyone would have in their possession at that time. It can't appear to be a "prepared weapon" as the judge put it. Because my stick was so innocent in appearance, I walked out of court scott free, and the idiot with the dead off leash pit bull had to pay our emergency vet bill for having our corgi's shoulder stitched up. a stick is just a stick, no matter what. But two items out of place, put together in a manor making a slung shot weapon is something else. With a low profile stick, your training won't come into it. Just say you were so scared, you don't really remember swinging it. Or using the ends to thrust. Non issue.
