Strapless magazine pouches are authorized as long they are designed to be utilized in that manner. Stock firearms are to be used. Night sights and grips are the ONLY authorized modifications. Race-guns, laser sights, holographic sights, or compensated guns are not permitted.
ALL EQUIPMENT IS SUBJECT TO AN INSPECTION AND A “SHAKE TEST.” Shooters without approved equipment may borrow approved equipment. Registration will not be refunded for failure to shoot due to equipment problems. If you have a question about equipment, contact Mark Tiedemann of VBPD/FOP#8 Shooting Team at Mtiedema@vbgov.com The purpose of the match is to improve the skill sets and survivability of lethal encounters of the competitors. We also seek to provide an opportunity for members of our community to share ideas and training techniques for the betterment of all.
