Hosting A Tactical Police Competition Event

There are no requirements to host an approved event, however, the NRA encourages any interested agency or range facility to consider utilizing the NRA Tactical Police Competition Standards (Rules) when conducting an event.The NRA seeks continuity within the program and desires anyone interested in continuing to "Bring the Streets to the Range" to contact NRA LEAD Competitions staff to find out more about becoming a host of a TPC event.


To be a host facility, the host range should have the capabilities of:

  • 6-8 individual shooting bays with side berms
  • Bays should be similar in construction as those used in IPSC, IDPA or Cowboy Action Shooting. Contact the TPC Administrator if your range has another style of berm or backstop.
  • Stage construction materials
    • IPSC/IDPA type portable target stands with wooden target sticks
    • Simulated cover (i.e., plywood or coroplast walls, barricades, plastic drums or other type of range props)
  • Stage materials during match such as staple guns, hammers, timers and clip boards with ink pens
  • Some type of shelter (fixed or portable) to allow the competitors relief from the weather (rain or sun)
  • Restroom availability (fixed or portable)
  • Ease of access into the shooting facility
  • Ample parking for staff and competitors
  • Electricity (permanent or generator) for running statistical office computer and printers.
