The California Police Pistol Association is conducting two NRA Sanctioned Police Pistol Combat Tournaments at the Ben Clark Public Safety Training Center.

 The Tournaments will be conducted on April 21st and 22nd 2018, at the Riverside Sheriff’s Range.  By having back-to-back Tournaments shooters can compete in two Tournaments in one

weekend, saving travel time and costs.

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.
