The California Police Pistol Association is sponsoring two Sanctioned NRA Police Pistol Combat Registered Tournaments on the same weekend at the Sacramento Sheriff’s Firearms Training Center and simultaneously as a “Postal Tournament” at the Ben Clark Public Safety Training Center in Riverside.

 

By having back-to-back Tournaments shooters can compete in two Tournaments in one weekend, have all scores fired eligible for NRA Classification, and save travel costs and time.

 

The Tournaments will be conducted on Saturday August 4th and Sunday August 5th with the Santa Cruz Sheriff Pistol Team PPC Tournament to be fired first and the Santa Cruz Sheriff Reserves PPC Tournament second.  You can fire both Tournaments on one day or over two days.

 


 

 

 

 

Matches Offered: Each Tournament will offer the NRA Open Class Semi-Automatic Pistol Match and Open Class Revolver Matches.  The Santa Cruz Sheriff Pistol Team PPC Tournament will also offer the NRA Stock Service Semi-Automatic Pistol Match and Stock Service Revolver Matches.  The NorCal Reserves PPC Tournament will offer the California Police Pistol Association Distinguished Matches.

 

There will also be non-sanctioned Two and Four Officer Team Matches available that will be non-fired paper matches using each team members Match 5 score.  Since this is a non-fired match, pursuant to PPC Rule 19.3 no team scores will be forwarded to NRA Law Enforcement Competitions.   All teams must be declared with Bob Yoshida prior to the first member of the team firing a shot.  Failure to do so will result in the disqualification of the entire team.

Classification:   Competitors will be entered using their current NRA Police Pistol Combat Classification of High Master, Master, Expert, Sharpshooter, Marksman, or Classified. Competitors with expired Classifications, new shooters with no Classification, or those without a Temporary Record Score Book will be registered in the High Master Class as required by PPC Rule 19.2.

 

Competitors may check their current NRA Classification at LEcompetitions.nra.org.

 

Categories:  There will be no categories used in these Tournaments.

 

Awards:  All awards will consist of either cash and/or merchandise.  One award will be presented for every seven competitors in a Class.   If there are less than 5 competitors in a Classification, those competitors may be moved to the next higher Classification for Awards Purposes by the Tournament Director per NRA Rule 19.15.

 

Targets:  Official NRA B-27 targets will be used.   

 

Scoring:  Competitor scoring will be used. Pursuant to PPC Rule 14.2, NO competitor will score their own target NOR may a competitor score the targets of a competitor from their same agency. If this cannot be avoided due to the Relay’s makeup contact a Tournament Official to score the targets. PPC Rules prohibit the use of plug-type scoring gauges. Overlays and Eagle Eyes may be used by competitors. 

 

Competitors will inspect their own targets after scoring, check their score card for correctness and sign their score card to indicate acceptance of the score.

Score cards must be signed and are FINAL once signed so PLEASE double check the recorded hits and values BEFORE signing.   Accepted score cards will be checked by the Statistical Office and posted on the Match Results Bulletin Board. Competitors must sign their scorecards or risk not having scores accepted.

 

Challenges:  If the competitor wants to Challenge the scoring, they must inform the Chief Range Officer, complete the Challenge Form and pay a Challenge Fee if $ 1.00.  The fee will be refunded if the Challenge is ruled in favor of the shooter.  The Chief Range Officer will then clip the score card to the target along with the Challenge Form and the target will be moved to the Challenge area.  The Challenge will then be processed following NRA PPC Rule 16.1.  

 

Sighting Shots:  No sighting shots will be allowed.

 

Refires:  No re-fires will be allowed for defective guns or ammunition, or for other malfunctions of the shooters equipment. Competitors may clear jams or malfunctions provided all safety requirements are met.

 

Optical Devices:  No optical devices other than normal glasses worn for corrective eyesight or Sunglasses will be permitted on the range during Match firing for use by competitors. Use of a mechanical iris, eye patch or eye cover is also prohibited.

 

Courses of Fire:  The Range Officer will announce the course of fire, shooting positions and time prior to the start of each Match and Stage.  Time will start with a loaded gun in holster.  No part of the competitor's hand may touch the gun or holster until the command to commence firing is given. 

 

All loading will be with cartridges taken from the competitor's pocket, cartridge belt, mechanical loaders, or special pouch.  To force reloading under time restraints, magazine loading is limited to 6 rounds per magazine. There is no limit on the number of magazines you have but all used during the firing of a stage or string MUST be on your person.  It is the competitors’ responsibility to have sufficient ammunition in their possession to complete the Match being fired.

 

A conventional right or left‑hand holster must be used. For safety reasons, shoulder, cross draw or holsters which require releasing by insertion of finger within the trigger guard will not be allowed. Holster cannot be tied down.

 

If a competitor is uncertain about any equipment being eligible they must contact the Tournament Director and NRA Match Supervisor for a decision prior to firing the first Match.
