Shooting Range Park in Albuquerque welcomes shooters to the NRA's 2012 Police Championships
Albuquerque, New Mexico - The City of Albuquerque, the Albuquerque Police Department and the Shooting Range Park are the host for this year's NRA National Police Shooting Championships (NPSC). Serving as such for the past few years, the Shooting Range Park boasts more than firing points on this immaculate range.
"The facilities out here are spectacular," said NRA Law Enforcement Director Glen Hoyer. "Each year our competitors are treated to one of the best ranges in the country. Governor Martinez, Mayor Berry and the Albuquerque Police Department have been extremely helpful in our preparations for the 50th NRA National Police Shooting."
The unofficial soft-opening to NPSC begins today with the shotguns matches. Running throughout the championships, scores from the shotgun match will be included when deciding the grand aggregate champion.
The rest of the day is dedicated to registration, practice and finding they guys and gals you swapped stories with last year. Tomorrow, after Mayor Berry welcomes competitors to the field, that's when the magic happens.
"Our preregistration numbers are fairly high this year," said stat office head Howard Moody. "We're going to have a good turnout."
