Taking a spin on Revolvers at the National Police Shooting Championships

Taking a spin on Revolvers at the National Police Shooting Championships

The second day of NRA's National Police Shooting Championships focuses on the revolver. Specifically we'll see relays of Open Class Revolver, Open Class Optic Revolver, Distinguished Revolver, and Stock Service Revolver. Let's just say there'll be plenty of wheels spinning today.

Firing from 7, 15, 25, and 50 yards, competitors shoot from a standing, sitting, prone, and supported position. It's a lot of moving, a lot of firing, and a heck of a lot of reloading.

Ultimately scores from today's 1 through 5 matches will be combined to produce the Open Class Revolver Champion. Last year's winner, Robert Vadasz, won with a total of 1497-117x out of a possible 1500. That means you better be shooting straight to have any hope of knocking Vadasz off the podium.
