Joseph Hall smiling during the NRA Smallbore 3-Position Rifle Championship Port Clinton, Ohio - With a final score of 2383-171x, Specialist Joseph Hall of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit captured the 2013 NRA Smallbore 3-Position Rifle title in Camp Perry, Ohio. Besting fellow U.S. Army Marksmanship teammate Jason Parker by a total of three points, this is Hall's first overall title at the National Championships.

"For me this was one of my come back matches," said Hall.

Though from a family rich in the shooting tradition, despite mom's initial objections, Hall stepped away from behind the trigger and started working a "big boy job". It didn't take. Soon enough, his desire to get out on the field was too great to ignore. There was still something left to prove.
