      All, the NRA has replaced Hoyer's letter from June 17th with the following:

      To: All National Police Shooting Championship Competitors and Supporters

      The 2015 National Police Shooting Championships are quickly coming up and we are excited to
      see everyone in New Mexico. The 2015 championships will have some changes in st
      ructure with the intent of increasing participation and increasing the overall experience. These changes are based on competitor feedback, NRA Staff input and the NRA Law Enforcement Committees oversight.

      The initial changes created several legitimate concerns from competitors and Chairman Bill Allen, NRA Law Enforcement staff and Kyle Weaver, NRA Executive Director of General Operations have reviewed those concerns and have made the following amendments.

      INDIVIDUAL MATCHES:
      The Open Class Division Semi-Automatic Pistol Championship (Match), commonly called the “1500 Auto Match” and The Open Class Division Revolver Championship (Match), commonly called the “1500 Revolver Match” will now be referred to as the “Open Class Division Championship”The Open Class Division Championship will be the “1500 Match” with the competitor deciding to shoot either a revolver or semi-auto handgun.

      There will be no phasing out period or discussion of phasing out revolvers. This is the structure
      of the 1500 match moving forward.

      The Stock Service Semi-Automatic Pistol Match, commonly called “Stock Auto Match” and The Stock Service Revolver Match, commonly called the “Service Revolver Match” will be referred to as the “Stock Service Duty Gun Championship”

      The Stock Service Duty Gun championship will be shot with either a stock auto or service revolver, choice of the competitor.

      There will be no phasing out period or discussion of phasing out revolvers. This is the structure
      of the Stock Service Duty Gun moving forward.

      The Production Semi-Automatic Pistol Championship (Match), will be the same as last year.

      The Off Duty Sidearm Championship, commonly called the ‘Off Duty Match” will continue with same structure as in the previous eight years; competitors choose whether to fire a revolver or a semi-auto pistol, either one, but not both.

      Distinguished Semi-Automatic Pistol & Distinguished Revolver Championship (Match), commonly called the “Distinguished Matches

      Competitors may fire in BOTH the Distinguished Semi-Automatic Pistol and Distinguished Revolver Matches, as previously.

      TEAM MATCHES:

      The Open Class Division Four & Two Officer Team Championships (Match) commonly called the 1500 Team Matches. Team Captains need to decide if their team will fire the Open Class Semi-Automatic Pistol Team
      Championship (Match) or the Open Class Revolver Team Championship (Match) with all members firing the same firearm type and registering for the appropriate Four or Two Officer Team Match.

      The Stock Service Semi-Automatic Pistol Four & Two Officer Team Team Captains need to sign their members up for either the Four or Two Officer Stock Service Semi-Automatic Pistol Team Championship (Match). Competitors may not fire in more than one Relay or Match.

      The Production Semi-Automatic Pistol Division Four & Two Officer Team Championships (Match), this is a recently added event and most are calling it “Production Team Match”. Team Captains need to sign their members up for either the Four or Two Officer Production Pistol Team Championship(Match). Competitors may not fire in more than one Relay or Match.

      We appreciate all the feedback received and have made adjustments to correct the 2015 structural changes. The goal of all involved is increase participation, attract new shooters and industry partners and overall improve the championships. With change, there are always some disagreements. We will continue to work on the structure, pursue feedback from all of the competitors and make adjustments that are best for the competitors as a whole and the NRA NPSC.

      Thank you for all your support and concerns and we look forward to a great championship.

      Best Regards,
      William Allen, Chairman NRA Law Enforcement Committee
      R. Kyle Weaver, NRA Executive Director, General Operations
      NRA Law Enforcement Committee
      NRA Law Enforcement Staff

      It isn't all we wanted but it is a start. A thanks to everyone that has written a letter already, every bit helps. To those who haven't written, now is the time to start hitting for the bleachers and trying to get the rest of the changes made.
