The National Police Shooting Championship

September 17-21, 2016

Join us in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for shooting challenges, lots of fun, and a chance to meet and shoot with law enforcement professionals from all over the United States and the world. 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 slots 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 and Awards Ceremony.

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 a NRA Police Pistol Combat Tournament or hold no PPC Classification.

The Championships kick off on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016, with the New Mexico Challenge for officers who work for New Mexico Law Enforcement agencies and have never fired in a PPC Match before, as well as for alumni shooters of the New Mexico Challenge from years past.

NPSC onsite competitor check-in and the NPSC Shotgun Championship will begin on Sunday, Sept. 18. The NPSC Handgun Range will also be open on Sunday for zeroing and practice relays.

Make your plans now to attend NPSC 2016 and sign up for the Championship Package to shoot all of the Championship Matches, or choose one or more of the following: one of the two Stock Duty Gun Championships (Production Semi-Automatic Pistol Championship OR the Stock Duty Gun Division Championship), the Off Duty Championship, the Open Class Semi-Automatic Pistol Championship, the Open Class Revolver Championship, the Distinguished Semi-Automatic Pistol Championship, the Distinguished Revolved Championship, and the Law Enforcement Shotgun Championship.
