, it's time to start looking at some of the competitors we'll be seeing out there in Albuquerque. One of the first that comes to mind is Melisse (yes, Melisse ... or Mel) Turner of the San Antonio Marksmanship Unit.
Mel has been a regular at the National Police Shooting Championships (NPSC) for a little more than three years now. Finding herself in a male dominated profession has done little to slow her down as she juggles life at the office (okay, the airport) and life at home. That's not easy for law enforcement officer. For a single mom ... the challenges are even greater.
