Are there many PPC matches held in the U.S. that civilians are allowed to compete at. I live in Canada and have shot PPC for about 20 years. Up here civilians have shot alongside law enforcement personel, for years. Our National Body the Canadian Police Combat Asso. have allowed civilian members for several years. Civilians had to be sponsered by a Peace Officer at one time to join, but not anymore. Civilian members have associate memberships in the CPCA, no voting rights, but there are civilian Reps, on the CPCA board so civilians have some input. Just wondering.
