Kyle's Story #2 from 2011 - Bernosky takes High Power title at Camp Perry
This past August, Carl R. Bernosky of Ashland, Pennsylvania, shot his way to his 9th NRA National High
Power Rifle Championship at the NRA National Rifle & Pistol Championhips – better known as Camp Perry.
A National Guard training facility on the shores of Lake Erie, near Port Clinton, Ohio, Camp Perry has been home to NRA's national championships for 102 years.
The matches, which take place during July and August, have become notorious for their harsh gusts of wind, sweltering heat and storms that come off the lake with little warning.
Camp Perry is where the big names in shooting go to lay claim to their abilities. The courses of fire for each of the five championships are so great that they act as a form of attrition in determining the champion. Once the last shot has been meticulously aimed and fired, there is no doubt that the shooter with the gold medal, standing atop the podium, was the best one out there.
