The National Police Shooting Championships

September 23-25, 2019
Pearl, Mississippi

Advance registration has closed for the 2019 NPSC, but you can register on-site. Please go to the Statistical Office when you arrive to register.

We are pleased to announce that the 2019 National Police Shooting Championships will be held at the Mississippi Highway Patrol range facility in Pearl, Mississippi. The Practice & Zeroing Day will be held on Sunday, September 22.

The Championships are open to public and private law enforcement members and select law enforcement members of the U.S. military. This is not an invitation-only match, it is not a Point Series, there are no lottery slots you have to try for, and no club slot you have to be selected for. Everyone is welcome to come to the National Police Shooting Championships, whether you just shoot one Championship match and come just for a day or shoot all of the Championship matches and join us for the entire event.

You don’t have to be a High Master shooter to attend or do well at the Championships. In fact, High Masters and Masters make up the smallest group of shooters who attend the Championships. Like all Police Pistol Combat Tournaments, you compete against shooters in your own skill Classification level. You can even shoot as an Unclassified Shooter if you have never fired in an NRA match.

So, turn your leave request in now, and start getting your guns and gear together for the 2019 National Police Shooting Championships.

These matches are an alternative to firing the corresponding Championship matches. As such, competitors must elect to fire the regular Championship.
