Have what it takes to stand amongst the best of the best?

Fairfax, Virginia - Did you know the NRA keeps track of nearly 7,000 national shooting records? Is that more than you thought there were? With so many, you probably have a better chance of tying or breaking one than you thought. Maybe this will be your year!

Are you wondering how there are so many records? They add up rather quickly once you stop to consider it.

The NRA keeps track of a lot of disciplines including Air Pistol, Action Pistol, High Power Rifle, Silhouette Pistol, Smallbore Rifle, Fullbore and to name a few. And from each of those disciplines it branches out further.

Within each discipline there are records for metallic sight, any sight, rapid fire, slow fire, prone, standing and all the variations of ways to shoot. Don't forget about shooting indoor, outdoor, distance and number of shots fired. Think the number is big enough? Don't forget about all of this being stored for both individuals and teams. The final whammy comes with all of the possible classifications (e.g. Open, Civilian, Service, Woman, Junior, Senior, Police, etc.).
