(Citizen participants)


Qualified citizens are now welcome to come train with their 1st responders. Upon registering for the NPRC OPEN, our staff will reach out to you requesting the following documentation be provided to secure a slot in the event. If you cannot provide this documentation, you will not be allowed to shoot and no refund will be given. These documents are required for safety purposes without exception.    

  1. A copy of a valid state issued concealed carry license permit.
  2. At least TWO of the following proof's of your training;
    • A copy of a certificate of ADVANCED training from a recognized training entity for both the carbine (AKA Patrol Rifle) AND semi-auto pistol. 
      • A CPL license is not recognized by the NPRC OPEN as "advanced" training.
      • Military basic training or boot camp IS recognized by the NPRC OPEN as meeting the advanced carbine training requirement.  
    • A USPSA membership number
    • Proof of shooting in other recognized competitive training events. 
    • If you have a question on what training is recognized by the NPRC OPEN, please send in a copy of your training certificate and we will get back to you after our staff has reviewed it. Thank you.  


The requirements above are not meant to be offensive in any manner whatsoever, but rather as a method to help ensure everybody's safety as most of the COF's at the NPRC are dynamic. We know from decades of experience that physical and mental stress can manifest into safety violations and its our job to reduce that risk as much as possible. We hope you understand. We thank you very much for considering participation in the NPRC OPEN.      


All NPRC OPEN attendees must present a valid driver’s license and CPL ID card at check-in.
