Trijicon and Peacemaker succeed in creating championship that offers variety of shooting experiences

Trijicon World Shooting Championship American Rifleman

American Rifleman's Brian Sheetz breaks down why the Trijicon World Shooting Championship is such a hit ...

Trijicon World Shoot Winds Down
After such an unqualified success as the Trijicon World Championship, it's obvious that Peacemaker has succeeded in its mission to bring excellence in a variety of shooting experiences to the masses.

From a wide range of competitors in both pro and amateur categories to sponsors and staff, the inaugural Trijicon World Shooting Championship appears to have been a success if it is to be judged by the enthusiastically affirmative responses that arose from the informal survey question, “Would you shoot it again next year or recommend it to a friend?”

Perhaps that shouldn’t be surprising considering that total prize money for the event exceeded $100,000 with first place alone accounting for half. The multi-day event officially wraps up with an awards ceremony later on, but today’s overall mood was evidence enough that the real reward for most shooters came from participating in the wide range of shooting disciplines it offered at Peacemaker National Training Center outside tiny Glengarry, W.Va.
