Philip Hemphill secured the 2019 NRA .22 Caliber Pistol Championship and the Walker Trophy Plaque at Camp Perry on July 10 with a score of 888-49X.
Additionally, Hemphill was the winner of the Police Division, and came in third place in the .22 Cal. Slow Fire event with a score of 194-9X.
Notably, Hemphill uses Lapua Center-X .22 LR rimfire ammunition, which he praises for its uncompromising quality and dominating results.
"It's an honor to be able to come out here and test my shooting skills in one of the longest-running pistol events in the nation," said Hemphill, adding, "My whole team, Team Zero, shoots Lapua Center-X, because we know it will outperform all other .22 caliber competition ammo."
In 2007, NRA awarded Hemphill "NRA Law Enforcement Officer of the Year."
