This month's NRA National Police Shooting Championships (NPSC) held at Albuquerque's Shooting Range Park should see more than 700 police officers, federal agents and lawmen flocking its grounds. The championships have been held at the Shooting Range Park since 2006, and kicks off September 15 through 19. The NPSC is a four day test of real law enforcement shooting skills; each match begins with the gun holstered and targets out of view. Targets flip forward for a limited amount of time after the sound of a buzzer as competitors draw their guns, aim and fire.

"Competitors from as far as Russia, Australia and Venezuela have repeatedly made the trip out to Albuquerque for NPSC," said director of NRA's law enforcement division Glen Hoyer. "Thanks to the continued support of Governor Martinez, Mayor Berry, and the Albuquerque Police Department, we have the ability to stage one of the finest shooting competitions in the world."
