      2015 was the beginning of change at the PPC National Police Shooting Championships. For several years competitors had voiced concerns including, wait time between relays, certain guns being included in aggregate matches, proposal to eliminate all revolver competition ,unfired team matches, elimination of World team matches, inclusion of TPC Championship, just to name a few. The frustration came to a head at the 2015 competitors meeting outlining the above concerns. Thankfully the NRA Law Enforcement Assistance Committee Chairman Bill Allen and Vice Chairman Dwight Van Horn were in attendance and asked and fielded many questions and took notes. At the NRA annual meeting Bill Allen and Dwight Van Horn presented competitor concerns to Management and committee members in attendance. These concerns and possible solutions were also presented by Border Patrol National Champions Robert Vadasz and Mike Tangas. The NRA response was positive and a Task Force was formed including the aforementioned individuals along with Philip Hemphill and Cathy Schroeder all past or present PPC competitors and National Champions as well, each awarded multiple Championships. The Task Force represents the competitors concerns and will continue to improve the Integrity of these Championships and return them to the prestigious event it had been for so many decades. The only weak link in this chain of improvement is a need for more competitors in attendance. Please show your support for this Task Force and its efforts to improve these National Championships. If you’ve ever considered attending, 2016 will include many positive changes so make plans to attend, and bring as many team mates as you can and enjoy the greatest Law Enforcement shooting Championship in the World. I heard someone say they thought PPC shooting was dying; it can only die if we allow it! Let’s prove the naysayers wrong. Make your plans NOW!!!!! Jerry P. Eason
