Houston, Texas - Regardless of your age, one of the most fun activities at an NRA Annual Meeting is the Pyramyd Air Gun Range. Located on the third floor in room 310, the range provides the perfect opportunity to plink a few shots off. (And rest your weary legs.)

Sporting the latest and greatest in air rifles and air pistols, this convention center room has been converted to a 10-meter air gun range with over a dozen lanes. Does that sound like fun? Of course it does.

Fairfax, Virginia - In just four days more than 70,000 people are expected to converge on Houston's George R. Brown Convention Center for the 142nd NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits.

University of Michigan's Ying Yi Liu at the 2013 NRA Intercollegiate Rifle Club Championships

Columbus, Georgia - Today's Air Rifle title at the NRA Intercollegiate Rifle Club Championships started out like any other. After their preparation period, 54 shooters looked ten meters down range at their targets and began the 60-shot match. A match that would determine both the team and individual champion.

Competitors received an hour and forty-five minutes to shoot their pellets in six strings of ten shots. Some finished quickly, others took their time.

Clemson University, winners of the 2010 and 2011 Air Rifle titles, posted a 2201 out of 2400 and appeared to be on their way to a third victory, but the match was not quite over.
