Centerville, GA – May 11, 2012-- Site Picture announced today the Law Enforcement v Shooting Stars (L.E.S.S.)tournament is now open to all shooters across the United States in a move prompted by law enforcement to compete with the best of all the rest.

Site Picture produces L.E.S.S., which is earmarked as the most anticipated shooting competition in 2012.“In response to law enforcement gunning to prove they will beat all other action shooters, Site Picture delivers the event that determines the best,” said Dawn Goldman, chief marketing officer. “We will settle this once and for all but who will it be, law enforcement or best of the rest?” This tournament levels the playing field by requiring an unmodified handgun be used. Showcasing shooting skills, precision accuracy and technique four winners are guaranteed $15,000 each with a chance at $5,000 in a bonus round. “Action shooters often compete just to win but these prizes make winning L.E.S.S. tournament financially worthwhile,” announces Goldman.
