NRA Shooting Sports USA Salutes the Border Patrol National Pistol Team

NRA Shooting Sports USA (SSUSA) has lauded the US Border Patrol National Pistol team as one of the most decorated organizations to field their shooters at NRA competitions.

In a February 20 feature length article for SSUSA, John Parker takes an in-depth look at Border Patrol’s competitive shooting history from early beginnings in the 1920s to this century’s NRA Bianchi Cup.

“Customs and Border Patrol agents standard training isn’t about sitting back and waiting,” Nick Malone, Assistant Chief of the Use of Force Branch, Mission Readiness Operations Directorate at U.S. Border Patrol headquarters tells Parker. “Competitive shooting allows our agents to practice a valuable skill set.”

The article also explains selection criteria and interviews Art Velez, the team’s captain and Rob Vadazs who has won 10 NRA National Police Shooting Championships and six Bianchi Cup Metallic Championships over the last twenty years.
