Tactical Police Competition provides training for Law Enforcement

When you're out on a Tactical Police Competition course, the only thing you're thinking about is time. Time to identify your target, time to fire on target and time to move onto the next one. Any mistakes are penalized with time and ultimately ... you're ranked by time.

Whenever I'm out on a Tactical Police Competition course, the only thing I'm thinking about is staying out of the way. That's because I'm just there to capture the moment. The only think I'm shooting are pictures and videos. To share the moment with those who read NRAblog.

Texas Police Officers round out top three at San Antonio Tactial

Office Quick of the Round Rock Police Department in Texas

San Antonio, Texas - Why wait a little more then a month to offer a nod to those who finished third at NRA's San Antonio Tactical Police Competition? Things do have a way of piling up around here. There's so much to write (and so much to do) that we're often forced to leave a few bites on the table while moving on to the next course. So now we go back to the Law Enforcement piece of the pie.

The San Antonio Tactical Police Competition, held early this November at the Blackhawk Shooting Range, saw almost a hundred competitors head out into the sun. Coming from all corners of law enforcement, the shooters were divided into two specific groups — Tactical and Patrol. The courses are all the same, it's only the equipment that changes.

NRAblog Rewind goes back to San Antonio for the 2011 Tactical Police Competitions at the Blackhawk Range

One of my favorite Tactical Police Competition videos of all time. Here's the post from 2011.

San Antonio, Texas - Course number 2 at the NRA's Tactical Police Competition in San Antonio, Texas was titled "Close Quarters Rifle II." When the timer sounds, the shooter spins and fires at a single target down range. After landing two hits, he/she makes their way to the second firing area — a simulated hallway that leads ultimately leads to faux wall. All that's left are five targets on the left and three targets on the right.

Ting Sun of the McKinney Police Department was kind enough to wear one of our helmet cameras while running through the course to provide you with an inside look at the challenge.

San Antonio, Texas - The final course at NRA's Tactical Police Competition in San Antonio was donned Port-to-Port. No, there's not sailing involved in this exercise. Instead, it's a rifle and shotgun special focused more on training then the standard real-life scenarios our tactical competitions are known to offer.

With your shotgun placed in a barrel at the end of the course and your rifle in hand, the buzzer sounds and you're off.
