U.S. Border Patrol's Robert Vadasz leads Semi-Automatic 1500 at day's end

Robert Vadasz reviews his performance at NRA's Open Class Semi-Automatic 1500 Championship in New Mexico

Albuquerque, New Mexico - Open Class Semi-Automatic Pistol 1500 is not only the first showdown for the National Police Shooting Championships, it's also a heck of a barometer for the Grand Aggregate title? Why is that? Because today's average law enforcement officer is more likely to carry a semi than a revolver. That means if you're going to pull ahead, you better get to it when the getting is good.

That doesn't mean you're out of the aggregate title hunt if your semi numbers aren't stellar. No, there's a shot (pun intended) if you rack up some serious numbers in the shotgun and revolver categories, but why race from behind when you can lead from the lead. I know, but it sounded good in my head.
