"It doesn't get any tighter," Green exclaims after close finish in NRA High Power Rifle Championships
Port Clinton, Ohio - For years, the NRA High Power national title had always been just out of reach for Staff Sgt. Brandon Green. But finally, in 2013, after four tense days of shooting, Brandon Green is a national champion.
"It feels extremely good," Green said after receiving his national title at last night's awards ceremony. "It was a very tight match the whole way through. The weather conditions were so difficult but everybody still shot well. I fought hard to finally get here and it feels pretty good for everything to come out in my favor."
Brandon would have had enough to worry about with just the weather, but throw in a neck-and-neck race with defending champion Carl Bernosky and things get nerve-racking.
"It doesn't get any tighter than it was today," Green said to me.
