Smallbore shooters on the first day of 3-Position Rifle Championships in Camp Perry

Port Clinton, Ohio - Beating back the heat currently encompassing most of the United States, hundreds of competitors took to the field the morning for the NRA's Smallbore 3-Position Rifle Championships. And it hasn't been easy.

Though without the winds and rain that pounded last week's pistol shooters have departed, there are still a few threats on the horizon.

"Weather reports suggest they'll only have to deal with the heat until Friday," said Neal, an NRA Block Officer here at the Championships. "Then we'll have the rain. Can't have a smallbore championships without a little rain."

Through the first two relays, prone and standing, only the kneeling portion remains to see who takes the first title of the week. Unfortunately, only scores from the prone leg of the metallic or iron sight championship are posted in full.

With that in mind, here are the preliminary scores for the standing portion of the title hunt.
