Footage of special NRA-sanctioned 3-Gun Club Champion Challenge

Wallkill, New York - Last month we told you about a special 3-Gun Club Champion Challenge the NRA sanctioned for the Wallkill Rod & Gun Club in Wallkill, New York.

Due to the nationwide ammunition shortage, the challenge worked around the hard-to-find ammunition and required fewer rounds than your standard 3-Gun competition, letting shooters enjoy some sport without running too high a bill.

NRA sanctions reduced-shot 3-gun match for Club Champion Challenge

NRA Club Champion Challenge winner Al Bockemuhl

Wallkill, New York - You can't have a conversation with a shooter these days without discussing the ammunition shortage.

Popular calibers seem to fly off the shelves as soon as new shipments arrive and getting your hands on a box will stretch your budget. New York has been hit especially hard by the lack of available ammunition and, now that the weather is warm, competitive shooters are having a tough time looking for fun.

Enter the NRA.

This past May, NRA Competitive Shooting designed a sanctioned 3-Gun Club Champion Challenge for the Wallkill Rod & Gun Club in Wallkill, New York that required fewer rounds than your standard 3-Gun competition. Working around the (hopefully temporary) constraints, the match allowed shooters to enjoy some sport without running too high a bill. The match was divided into five stages, one per week, requiring an average of 20 rounds each. NRA Competitive Shooting even supplied awards and promoted the match on social media.
