Senior Border Patrol Agent Robert Vadasz won the 2013 overall title at the NRA's National Police Shooting Championships at the Shooting Range Park in Albuquerque, N.M., with a final score of 6,149-413x. This is his fifth win at the championship in six years.

"I felt a little more confident and a little more in control this year," said Vadasz. "I was driving the gun better and just knew the shots were going to come. I lost 13 points while shooting Distinguished Revolver, which is a big one. I knew going into the Off-Duty match today that I couldn't give up too many points if I was going to hang on."

Border Patrol's Enoch Smith recorded a total of 6144-422x (x stands for bullseye) for a second place finish while his teammate Kevin Worrell came in third with a 6140-401x.

The National Police Shooting Championships are made up of sixteen different individual matches. Those matches fall into four separate categories; Open Class Revolver, Open Class Semi-Automatic Pistol, Individual Service Pistol and Law Enforcement Shotgun. More than 400 law enforcement officers from across the globe gathered in Albuquerque to take part in the competition.
