NRA match simulates real-life situations for Law Enforcement

Shooting from a seated position at the NRA Tactical Match

Anderson, South Carolina - The seven courses here at the Skip J Range for the NRA's Tactical Police Competition (TPC) in Anderson, South Carolina put competitors in real-life scenarios. In fact, Law Enforcement Competition's Manager Marc Lipp and his staff will sometimes pluck a scenario right out of today's news. Such was the case in course # 3 — Sonic Blast. Here's how it goes

Stage seven at the NRA Tactical Police Competition in South Carolina

Anderson, South Carolina - The morning air welcomed us with a chill. Footsteps in the frost are making the transition to dew and complete dryness as the sun begins it's rise. The darkness accompanying competitors on their way to the Skip J Range for the second NRA Tactical Police Competition (TPC) of the year is gone and all that's left is the shooting. And that started around 8:30 this morning.


Anderson, South Carolina range to host NRA's 2nd Tactical Police Competition of 2012

NRA's second Tactical Police Competition (TPC) of the year takes place this weekend at South Carolina's Skip J Range. Located roughly fifteen miles from the Georgia state line, the Skip J Range comes with ten shooting bays that are home to their regularly scheduled International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA), Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) and Ruger Rimfire matches.

Thanks to the efforts of Law Enforcement Competitions Manager Marc Lipp, NRAblog will be on the ground for live coverage of the event. That means more interviews, photos and video of the competitors in action.


Belfast Range in Kinards, South Carolina

Kinards, South Carolina - In May we told you about the opening of the Belfast Range in Kinards. Belfast was the first range built through the NRA Public Range Fund Grant Program, a project that encourages local and state agencies to work with NRA in order to build or improve public ranges across the United States. And tomorrow we'll be back for more.


Opening on the Belfast Wildlife Area rifle range in South Carolina on NRAblog

Today marked the opening on the Belfast Wildlife Area rifle range. While it’s true that there’s probably a handful of ranges opening across the United States every week, the Belfast range is significant for two reasons … first it’s an unmanned public range and second it was financed completely through NRA Grants and the Wildlife and Sportfish Restoration Program.

We’ll have more on this next week, but many thanks to NRA Board member Herb Lanford, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Director John Frampton and Emily Cope – the SC DNR’s Assistant Director of Special Projects and National Affairs.

The honor of the first shot was bestowed upon Emily for all her hard work in making this the first of many public unmanned ranges helped financed through Friend of NRA Grants.
