Ever taken part in an NRA Police Tactical Competition? Or maybe you just want to see one in action? Well if you're in the San Antonio, Texas area, then you're in luck.
For this weekend at the Blackhawk Shooting Range, NRA's final Tactical Police Competition of the year will be underway. Almost a hundred competitions making their way through seven courses built around real-life law enforcement scenarios. Training at it's finest.
As the old adage goes, trigger time is training time ... so there will be plenty of training going on this weekend.
"We're full up right now," said NRA Law Enforcement Competitions Manager Marc Lipp. "You have to sign up for these events early. They're awful popular and fill up fast."
NRA's Tactical Police Competitions were created to encourage patrol officers to gain more experience, training and time on the range using their duty firearms. Through the use of these live fire exercises, officers have the opportunity to one their skills and gain additional experience in handling and deploying duty firearms. Open to police, members of the U.S. Military and private sector law enforcement officers, the competitions do not allow any tricked out or competition grade guns.
So if you're in the San Antonio area, and you're looking for a bit of excitement, come see these officers run through a tactical course or two. It's free and more then worth the pice of admission.
