Law Enforcement battles weather and nerves at Long Range Alley

Grand Cane, Louisiana -"The rain was coming down pretty hard."

That's what NRA Manager of Law Enforcement Competitions Marc Lipp said when asked about last weekend's Tactical Police Competition (TPC) at the Long Range Alley Gun Club in Grand Cane, Louisiana. According to reports, there was little sight of warmth and sun for this match. Competitors were instead treated to a deluge of wind, mud and rain that put the actual match in jeopardy.

"I wouldn't have been surprised if the weather scared some people away," said Lipp. "As it turned out, we ended up at just four competitors under capacity."
