Once 300 shots from NRA sanctioned tournaments are received, you will automatically receive a classification card.
What scores are used for classification purposes in Police Pistol Combat?
Scores from 1500s, team matches, service revolver, off-duty pistol and stock semi-automatic pistol are used to establish a classification.
How am I moved up in class or reclassified?
Once you fire two scores above your current rating, within a two-year period, you will automatically be reclassified upwards.
How do I request to be declassified?
If you feel your classification rating is too high, you may request to be declassified. This request must be sent in writing to the NRA's Police Competitions Department who will review the competitor's shooting history to determine whether declassification is needed.
How do I request permission to compete using an alternate position or artificial support?
Simply send a letter to NRA requesting permission to compete using an alternate position. These sorts of requests require a letter from your doctor describing the medical issue. In some cases, further information may be requested. Additional information may be found in Section 13 of the Police Pistol Combat Rulebook.
The NRA Law Enforcement Division offers a complete police shooting program to police departments and law enforcement agencies to encourage patrol officers to gain more experience, training and time on the range using their duty firearms.
