Great Britain's Luckman in Long Range rifle and Arizona's Templey in Smallbore
Great Britain's David Luckman keeping score at NRA Long Range High Power Rifle Championships in Camp Perry, Ohio
- With a few thousands stories posted every year, the task of tapping just one for the top spot proved to be arduous at best. Basic Pistol classes, Youth Hunter Education, Women's Shooting Clinics and Law Enforcement Training ... where do you begin? In all, there are 178 programs in the NRA. That's why I went with our oldest program; the National Rifle & Pistol Championships in Camp Perry, Ohio.
But there were dozens of great stories at the National Championships too. We found a Youth Education Summit alum firing Smallbore, a touch of international flavor during the American Cup match, a sibling shooter juggling a publishing/aviation career as well as the Australian Rifle team and The Wagon too.
After sifting through six weeks of the ups and downs that Camp Perry always has to offer, I decided to push. Yes it's a tie. A tie between the Long Range High Power and 3-Position Smallbore rifle champions. First is the Long Range.
