April 26, 2008 was a beautiful day at the Blackwater Training Center in Moyock, N.C. The Virginia Beach Police Department/ Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #8 Shooting Team held their 13th Annual Police Combat Shooting Match. The match consisted of five stages which tested the skills, agility and decision making abilities of the competitors. Each shooter was ranked individually as well as a member of either a two or four man team. The event was open only to full-time sworn law enforcement officers and required that the competitor shoot stock weapons from industry standard duty gear. As in years passed, Aggressive Defensive Solutions was a corporate sponsor to the event which brought in about seventy shooters from all over the east coast. Additionally, AggDefSol instructors served as Course Judges as well as Safety Officers and three of our instructors competed as members of the VBPD/FOP Shooting Team. Shawn Johnson and Nicole Kosmas performed well as part of a four man team. Ric. Sutton shot as part of a two man team which took First Place for Two Man and Ric. was the Overall High Shooter for the match. Ric. won a new Glock pistol for his efforts from Glock USA which was one of the other corporate sponsors. AggDefSol would like to express its thanks to the entire Law Enforcement shooting community, especially to VBPD/FOP8 Shooting Team for hosting the event. AggDefSol stand ready to lend a hand with training or sponsorship to our brothers and sisters of the Thin Blue Line.
