The South Carolina Police Combat League (SCPCL) was formed in 1976 to give law enforcement officers in South Carolina an organization that would promote firearms training through competition. The SCPCL is an NRA affiliated group and sponsors competitive shooting matches at various police ranges around South Carolina as well as an annual Regional Match that draws shooters from several states where thousands of dollars in firearm and other prizes are awarded. Our members include federal, state, county, municipal and industrial police as well as reserve and retired officers.
Membership fees are $ 10.00 per year with a match fee charged to compete in each match.
Matches consist of the NRA PPC 1500 many including a service gun match before the 1500. The stages vary from three to fifty yards with each stage being timed and shot from different positions. The course can be fired with a revolver or semi-automatic weapon and the “service gun” match must be shot with stock service type weapons, revolver and semi-automatic, and with service ammunition. Shooters are classed by their scores, moving up to the next class as scores improve. Shooters of all skill levels are encouraged to join. Technique, skill and safety are emphasized with all “safe range” rules enforced.
Currently shooting in the SCPCL are several current and past national champions in individual as well as team categories. New shooter clinics are held during the year to help newer shooters improve their skill and learn what equipment is necessary to advance and be competitive.
