NRA Texas Multi-State Regional Tactical Police Competition returns this Friday

FAIRFAX, Va. -( The NRA Law Enforcement Division will be returning to the Extreme Tactics & Training Solutions facilities in Waxahachie, Texas, to conduct the Texas Multi-State Regional Tactical Police Competition on Friday, November 30, and Saturday, December 1.

Known by the initials TPC, the NRA’s Tactical Police Competition program was created to provide law enforcement agencies and their officers a cost effective way to expand their training opportunities in preparation for today’s challenging environment where officers must make split-second lifesaving decisions when dealing with violent situations in order to protect the communities they serve.

Officers need additional practice time, live-fire exercises and challenges under stress to hone their skills and receive additional experience in handling and deploying duty firearms and equipment. This competition-based training program allows officers, deputies and other law enforcement members to participate in scenario-based training for situations when there is no alternative to using force due to an offender’s violent and non-compliant actions.

During the daylong event, participants run through six separate training courses, with each course designed to assess specific law enforcement areas. Skill Based Courses challenge the officer’s skills in handling, accuracy and overall proficiency under set conditions. Scenario Based Courses place the officer in hypothetical law enforcement encounters such as robberies, active shooter calls, home invasions and incidents where significant numbers of innocent bystanders are present. The officer must then decide how to navigate the course and solve the challenges presented according to their own tactics and skill levels while meeting professional and legal protocols.

Established in 1960 by the NRA to provide direct support to the nation’s law enforcement community, the NRA Law Enforcement Division administers the TPC program and many others—including law enforcement firearm instructor development schools and competition-based programs such as the Tactical Police Competition program, Police Pistol Combat program and the National Police Shooting Championships, which draws law enforcement professionals from around the world.

Support for this event and the NRA Law Enforcement Division is graciously provided by major supporting sponsors DeSantis, Gargoyle Eyewear, Glock USA, Kahr Firearms Group, Mossberg, Nine Line Apparel, Odor Crusher, Present Arms, Smith & Wesson, Remington, Rocky Brands, Ruger and TRU-SPEC.

Is he training to shot the hostage?


Thank you police officers for keeping us safe. And screw you NRA for making all of us less safe with your
weapons of war tactical weapons guns everywhere agenda. These weapons do not belong in the hands of an untrained , unsafe populace where gun sales go unregulated and traffickers will never get caught thanks to the ATF being denied funds. No wonder these policemen have to work so hard to hone their skills. My dad NYPD 1953-1960

Freaking know nothing loser. An Ar15 is not a weapon of war so sit down and shut up. Go comment on the snowflake LibTard site.


If you served in the military, you would know what a “weapon of war” is. Apparently you don’t know that there is a big difference between an AR-15 and a M-16. Also bolt action rifles still serve in the armed forces, so you wish to ban those too? Gun don’t kill people, people with no morals kill people, if you served, you would know that also. You would also know that the NRA was founded by Army Generals, to teach civilians marksmanship and self defense. General Burnside would disagree with you, the NRA is about the 2nd Amendment and the… Read more »

@oswill, So many lies in a single paragraph, that it is difficult to know where to start, but I’ll try: “These weapons don’t belong … ” That is just your untrained, unsafe opinion. The NRA does not have a “… weapons of war tactical weapons guns everywhere agenda.” But the founding fathers did want Americans to have what each individual thought that they may need for personal and national defense. Guns are not weapons. One’s mind is the weapon. Guns are tools. Gun sales in the US are not “unregulated”. If you were in the military, then what was your… Read more »
