Courtney places at shooting competition

Captain Randy Courtney of the Greenville Police Department placed in three shooting courses at the Instant Response Team’s pistol competition held in Opp Friday.

Courtney placed third in the modified B27 course; second in the FBI Bullseye course; and third in IRT qualifying course No. 2.

The competition involved law enforcement officers from 10 agencies across the state.

Competitors took aim in a variety of shooting styles and techniques. In some parts of the competition, only accuracy was tested, while in others shooters not only had to shoot accurately but also quickly. Competitors shot at targets from three different distances and a variety of orientations, including standing, kneeling and one-handed.
