Albuquerque, New Mexico - It's a story as old as time. You're standing around, talking to a buddy, and then it happens. Zombies.

At least that's they way they see it here on Course #6 at the NRA's New Mexico Tactical Police Competition. Titled the "Walking Dead Attack", the scenario runs like this.

The Zombie Apocalypse has come true and you are in your own Zombie horror. This course will test your head shot accuracy as you try to escape a horde of Zombies (love that they used horde).

When the starting signal sounds, engage threat targets one through nine. Oh … didn't I tell you … you're doing the whole thing walking backwards. After all, you can't turn your back on a Zombie horde.

Hit targets 10 and 11 from firing area two and proceed to firing area 3. Same rules apply there. They apply so much that shooters are not allowed to proceed back up range. In fact, if you're not moving backwards while you're shooting then the shots don't count.

There are nineteen targets in total. Seventeen paper and two steel. First one out in the least amount to time wins. Unless they were bitten … of course.
