NRA's Pistol Championships to debut additional Team Competition
SFC Jim Henderson and SSG Patrick Franks of the Army Marksmanship Unit compete in a team match at 2011 NRA National Pistol Championships.
A new three-member team match will be added to the NRA National Pistol Championships at Camp Perry this year. Designed to be a fun match for all competitors, the Preliminary Team Event will consist of three competitors on each team. Each competitor will shoot one of the three firearms categories used in the National Championships: Center Fire, .45 Caliber, and .22 Caliber. The course of fire will be the National Match course, with a total of 30 rounds per competitor.
"NRA's Competitive Shooting Division is thrilled to be able to offer some changes this year that we hope will be fun and add some variety to the National Matches," said Dennis Willing, Director of NRA Competitive Shooting.
All team members will compete simultaneously on one relay. The total team aggregate is a possible total of 900 points. This event is for fun only and is not part of the National Championship Aggregate.
The Preliminary Team Event will be fired on Wednesday, July 11, 2012, immediately after the Preliminary Match. Out of competition teams are welcome and the Preliminary Team Event Fees are $30.00 for the three-member team . Registration for this Match will close at 4:00 p.m. Tuesday, July 10, 2012.
"NRA Competitive Shooting is always interested in improving the National Matches and will continually look for ways to do so," added Willing.
