Winners of this year’s 5.11 Challenge law enforcement shooting competition will need to update their passports. Challenge sponsor Express Police Supply of Lenexa, Kan., is sending the winners on an all-expense paid hunting trip in South Africa.
Registration for the annual Challenge in which two officer teams compete with handguns, rifles, and shotguns is ongoing. A total of 32 teams will be selected to compete from all the teams who sign up at www.511challenge.com.
Teams selected to compete are treated to an all-expense paid weekend trip to a five-star lodge on Montana’s Big Horn River. The three top-scoring teams will then be invited back to the lodge in August for the finals.
The first-place team will win $100,000 worth of gear, equipment, and apparel for their agency. The second-place team wins $50,000 worth of gear for their agency. And the third-place team wins $25,000 worth of gear for their agency. Last year’s finalists donated their winnings to agencies devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
