The CHP Pistol Team is conducting NRA Registered

Police Pistol Combat Tournaments at the California Highway Patrol Academy on the same weekend and simultaneously as a “Postal Tournament” at the Ben Clark Public Safety Training Center.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

The Tournaments will be conducted on Saturday May 6th and Sunday May 7th with the

CHP Pistol Team Pistol Combat Tournament being fired first and then the CAHP Memorial Pistol Combat Tournament will be fired.  By having back-to-back Tournaments shooters can compete in two Tournaments in one day or fire in one each day.

 

Each Tournament will be offering the NRA Open Class Semi-Automatic Pistol Match, Open Class Revolver Match, Stock Service Semi-Automatic Pistol Match and Stock Service Revolver Match.  Shooters can also sign up to fire the non-sanctioned California Distinguished Revolver and Semi-Automatic Pistol Matches.

 

These Tournaments are a great way for you to evaluate your skill level, identify needed training areas,

and practice your handgun skills to keep you prepared for the ever-increasing dangers you

face on the street and off duty. 

 

First Time Shooters

You do NOT need any fancy gear or guns to start shooting these matches. Just bring your duty handgun, four magazines, holster & magazine pouch. There is nothing to memorize, the course will be announced as you shoot just like the stages during a qualification and fellow officers will gladly help you out.  You can even use your stock duty gun to fire the Open Class Division matches to get started and see how

challenging and fun these matches are.

 

Dates:  Saturday May 6th and Sunday May 7th.  The CHP Pistol Team Pistol Combat Tournament will be conducted first each day and the CAHP Memorial Pistol Combat Tournament will be fired after the first Tournament’s relays have completed.
