U.S. Border Patrol Senior Agent Robert Vadasz has much to celebrate after winning a 10th consecutive NRA National Police Shooting Championship title.

Rob Vadasz
Vadasz was 2nd Place High Master in the NRA Police Distinguished Revolver Championship with a score of 588-32X.


Vadasz was at the top of the 2019 Open Class 3000 Aggregate Championships leaderboard with a score of 2985-215X. He gives much of the credit for his success on the firing line to being a member of the U.S. Border Patrol National Pistol Team.

"I can't begin to explain the benefit of being part of the Boarder Patrol National Pistol Team," Vadasz told NRABlog. "You can trace back our shooting lineage all the way back to 1935. In the 1940s we were competition and winning at Camp Perry as an agency. Once PPC started we jumped on board and never left. That means there's 100s of years of collective shootings experience to draw from. So I had the benefit of learn from 10 guys who were on the team for 20 years and each of them learned from 10 guys who were on the team for 20 years and so on."

The National Police Shooting Championships (NPSC) are a three-day competition conducted by the NRA and hosted by the Mississippi Highway Patrol/Mississippi Department of Public Safety. NPSC tests the marksmanship skills of law enforcement professionals that are drawn from local, state and federal agencies across the U.S. and the globe, as well as members of the military.
