NRA's Tactical Police Competition keeps competitors on their toes
Fairfax, Virginia - It's hard to describe the action on display at NRA's Tactical Police Competition. To appreciate the skills of these law enforcement officers as they blaze through one real-life scenario after another. Each time called on to quickly identify their targets and the deploy their duty sidearm, rifle or shotgun (or a combination of the three).
Thanks to stellar summer intern James Poole, we were able to catch a piece of that action during this year's Tactical Competition in Virginia.
If you like what you see, and feel like giving it a run, then think about making the trip next month out to Albuquerque, New Mexico for the National Police Shooting Championships. There you'll attend one of a kind amorer schools, see the latest in law enforcement gear and pick up operational tips and techniques from the best in law enforcement. And then there's the competition.
Almost a thousand officers from around the world come together at the Shooting Range Park in Albuquerque for the National Police Shooting Championships. Four days of competition, five if you come early for the National Tactical Police Competition phase, to put your skills to the test.
If you're in law enforcement, and you have the time, you have to go. It will change your perspective, add to your arsenal and change your life.
You also get to fire a few hundred rounds in less than a week. What could be better?
