San Antonio, Texas - That’s Melisse Turner of the San Antonio Marksmanship Unit (SAMU) taking part in the 2011 Tactical Police Competition (TPC) at the National Police Shooting Championships in New Mexico. We’re going to be seeing a lot more of Melisse and the rest of the SAMU this weekend as the final TPC of the year takes place in San Antonio.
As you read this post I’m on my way to Reagan National Airport so I can get to competition a little bit early. Why’s that? Because of the Range Officers.
Range Officers, or ROs, are the men and women who give up their Saturday to make sure that those participating in the TPC do so with the upmost safety. Instead, they run the course the day before the match.
We’ll be following the ROs tomorrow and the rest of the field on Saturday, so make sure to check back over the weekend to see how the competition shapes up. See you then.
