Austin, Texas - Practically a hundred members of law enforcement gathered at the Best of the West Shooting Range last weekend for the NRA's Spring Texas Tactical Police Competition. With Tactical (optics permitted for rifles and semi-auto shotguns allowed) outnumbering the Patrol (iron sights and pump-action shotguns only) competitors by a count of nearly three to one, there was plenty of guns, grit and gear to go around.
While a few outsiders (i.e. non-Texans) finished at the top of each Division, there were plenty of Longhorns scattered throughout the top five. Congratulations goes out to top Tactical dog Marc Miller of the U.S. Border Patrol and Patrol prizewinner Ting Sun of the McKinney Police Department.
Tactical Police Competitions provides officers with the always welcomed practice time, live fire exercises, and challenges that hone their skills and gain experience in the handling and deploying of duty firearms. Here's how they finished off in Texas:
