Put defensive skills to use in the NRA National Defense Match

Fairfax, Virginia - Two years ago the NRA began planning a match to develop and test defensive rifle skills with modern, general-purpose rifles, such as the extraordinarily popular AR-15. After careful refining, NRA is proud to present the NRA National Defense Match (NDM). Created for people of nearly all skill levels, these matches are able to be conducted on most center-fire rifle ranges throughout the country.

Like other NRA competitive events, the NDM is divided into categories for rifles with iron sights, non-magnifying optics such as many red dot sights, and telescopic sights. Any safe trigger and mechanical safety are allowed and there is no restriction on barrel length or noise suppressors. Center-fire and rimfire rifles are categorized separately. Lastly, creating junior categories for young shooters is at the match sponsors’ discretion. However, what sets the NDM apart from other NRA Competitive Shooting disciplines is its grounding in self defense.

Sound interesting? Take a look at the video above to get a better idea on what NDMs are about.
