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.
"Well we hit South Carolina yesterday and will spend the day at the range unloading the trucks, building props and putting together the courses," said Lipp. "Bert and the crew have been working hard to put it all together."
Although storm clouds are threatening, Lipp and the crew believe this weekend's event will be significantly dryer then last month's downpour in Shreveport. One thing we know for sure is that registration for the TPC is almost full.
Tactical Police Competitions provides law enforcement officers with the opportunity to train in timed, stressful, real-life situations. Using only duty firearms, it's the closest thing to what they can encounter on the streets just short of being on the streets. And as Marc always says, trigger time is training time.
