The National Police Shooting Championships

UPDATE FOR 2021: The National Rifle Association is disappointed to announce the cancellation of the 2021 National Police Shooting Championships (NPSC) due to factors stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.  We look forward to returning to the Mississippi Law Enforcement Officers Training Academy in Pearl, MS in 2022 for our premiere law enforcement shooting competitions.  Next year's NPSC will be held September 19-21, 2022.  Mark your calendars and we look forward to seeing you again in beautiful Mississippi!

September 19-21, 2022

The 2022 National Police Shooting Championships are scheduled for Monday, September 19, through Wednesday, September 21, at the Mississippi Highway Patrol Range Facility in Pearl, Mississippi. The Practice & Zeroing Day will be held on Sunday, September 18.

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 a NRA match.

So, bookmark this page and check back later to keep up on the plans for this year’s NPSC.
