First-time semi-automatic pistol event draws heavy, inspires more training
Albuquerque, New Mexico - With a score of 459-20x, Justin Jones of the Albuquerque Police Department laid claim to the NRA's 2014 New Mexico Challenge title. Besting fellow APD officer Matt Groff by 7 points, it's a win that hopefully inspires Jones to contemplate the benefits of competitive shooting.
"This even was created to bring first-time shooters into the shooting sports world," said NRA Law Enforcement Director Glen Hoyer. "Any excuse to improve your shooting skills is a good one, and if you walk away with a trophy or two, that's not too bad either."
