Albuquerque Police Officer wins New Mexico Challenge and Glock 34

Jeff Macfarlane accepts first place prize from NRA Law Enforcement Director Glen Hoyer at NRA Championships

Albuquerque, New Mexico - While just under a hundred shooters slopped and trudged through the soaked and seeping grounds of NRA's Tactical Police Competition on Saturday, a few hundred more took part in the New Mexico Challenge.

A recent addition to the National Police Shooting Championships, the 6th Annual New Mexico Challenge is a Police Pistol Combat competition reserved for New Mexico based law enforcement officers without a permanent classification. What does that mean? Basically it means the match is only for first time (or very new) New Mexico shooters. If you're new to shooting competitions and are looking to get your feet wet then there's no better place to begin.
