Take the NRA America's Rifle Challenge at Peacemaker National Training Center

Take the NRA America's Rifle Challenge at Peacemaker National Training Center

NRA America's Rifle Challenge is coming to Peacemaker National Training Center in Gerrardstown, West Virginia, in 2019.

On April 27 and August 3, three matches each day will offer safe shooters of all levels the opportunity to sharpen their skills on the AR platform through the NRA's unique training and competition event. Level 1 is designed for entry-level shooters out to 100 yards, and Level 2 is for everyone else. Both levels have been designed by Marines and the NRA Competitive Shooting Division to measure accuracy, speed, positional skills, and movement.

NRA America's Rifle Challenge (ARC) is a recreational shooting program designed to encourage rifle owners to do more than just target practice at the range; it gives them a fun, exhilarating introduction to the action shooting sports. ARC allows you to compete against yourself or your friends on timed, pre-designed courses. To learn more, watch this video about the ARC program and read up at SSUSA.org.
