If you'd like to enter
NRA's 2012 New Mexico Tactical Police Competition, then go to their website and sign up now. Starting on Saturday, September 15th, a few hundred officers will make their way through the obstacles constructed throughout the Shooting Range Park right outside of Albuquerque. Once everyone makes it through (usually around 6pm on Sunday), we'll wrap things up on Sunday with a quick awards ceremony, rifle raffles and goodies giveaway.
There are two great things about taking part in an NRA TPC. First ... everyone gets a prize. You finish first, you finish last, odds are you're going to walk away with something at least as valuable as the entry fee. Second ... training.
Trigger time is training time. Whether you're on the range or running through an obstacle course, the more time you have behind the trigger means the more you'll be prepared should you ever be placed in a life threatening situation.
Some come on out to the Tactical ... you never go home empty handed.
