Albuquerque, New Mexico - Shooting is a singular sport. Or is it?

Even during the individual portion of the National Police Shooting Championships, friends and co-workers will discuss problems, techniques and solutions. No where is that more evident then on the final days of the competition ... the team matches.

When comparing the team and individual matches, one can spot a number of similarities. They shoot the same distances, fire the same guns and amongst the same competitors. But there are differences ... and restrictions.

One big difference is that a teammate or coach will peer over the shooter's shoulder once the target spins round. Calling out shots, spotting potential problems and offer advice. That doesn't happen in the individual events.

The primary restrictions are that all team members must belong to the same department. You can't just find a shooter on the field and partner up. Nope, you have to dance with the ones who brought you or don't dance at all.

Now back to the range.
