U.S. Senior Border Patrol Agent and Team Safariland shooter Robert Vadasz was the individual national champion and grand aggregate champion at the 2015 NRA National Police Shooting Championships (NPSC) held in Albuquerque, NM, in late September.

Competing in the sport since 2001, this is the seventh national championship win for Vadasz. He is the 10th national champion for the U.S. Border Patrol and holds the second most wins in NPSC history. A revolver and semiautomatic firearm-based competition, the Championships are open to public and private law enforcement members and select law enforcement members of the U.S. military. During the competition, Vadasz used the Safariland Model 014 Open Class Competition Holster, Model 002 Cup Challenge Competition Holster, Speedloader – Comp III, and Model 773 Competition Open Top Magazine Pouch.

"With competitors from Venezuela, Australia, Germany, and the United States, Vadasz's wins are impressive," said Scott Carnahan, Vice President, Equipment, The Safariland Group and Team Safariland Manager. "In partnership with champion shooters like Vadasz, we develop superior products for competition that help ensure winning results."

Team Safariland members are an integral part of the company's product development process by regularly testing Safariland materials and products to ensure design and development. For more information about Team Safariland and Safariland equipment, please visit

I was a Border Patrol Agent, retired 1979, & a member of our pistol team. Before the NRA began the National Police championships we competed in the National Pistol Championships at Camp Perry, Ohio. Every year that we went to the Police Matches we won the team championship. Agent Jerry Jackson won the individual championship several times. I gave my trophys to the Border Patrol Museum. Years later I went to the museum and asked why they were not displayed. I was told because shooters names were not on them?? Roy Huntley
