High winds keep targets grounded at NRA National Rifle and Pistol Championships
Port Clinton, Ohio - The scores for this year's High Power Rifle Championship and Mid-Range Rifle Championship are going to be a little lower than normal.

But Camp Perry is known for it's punishing heat, out-of-nowhere storms, and wind, right? At 20 miles per hour and gusting up to 28 mph, today's wind was ripping the targets clean off their frames and even cracking a couple. And that was for the brief time they even tried putting the targets up.
