The VADM Lloyd M. Mustin Trophy, right, is presented by the retired and active duty U.S. Navy competitive shooters to the NRA for use in the High Power Rifle Long Range Championships.
This trophy will be presented in honor of Admiral Mustin and his dedication to the shooting sports, both in the U.S. Navy and the National Rifle Association. The trophy, formerly known as the “Archer”, is silver and was crafted in England in the mid 1800's. It was originally awarded to the winner of the archery contest for which it was placed in competition.
VADM Lloyd M. Mustin, USN, was a member of many U.S. Navy teams that competed at the NRA National Matches, and Team Captain on one U.S. Palma team. He also was a mentor of the navy shooting program and served on the Board for the Promotion of Rifle Practice. He was a member of the NRA’s High Power Rifle Committee and after retirement from the U.S. Navy, served on the NRA Board of Directors, rising to its highest honor of President, serving for two years.
In its first year, Middleton Tompkins won the Mustin Trophy with a 198-10x and a 100-6x shoot off score. Last year John Whidden won the match with a 198-11x and a shoot off score of 100-8x.
