The National Rifle Association proudly announces the 2016 NRA World Shooting Championship, scheduled for September 15-17, 2016, at Peacemaker National Training Center in Glengary, West Virginia. The competition, gathering the top shooters in the world to compete in virtually every type of major firearms shooting sport including pistol, rifle, shotgun and combined firearm sports, will crown one competitor the undisputed "World Shooting Champion."
The NRA World Shooting Championship tests a shooter's skill set across twelve stages, covering disciplines from virtually every major shooting sport including pistol, rifle, shotgun, and multi gun. Open Professional, Stock Professional, and Amateur divisions will draw a crowd of the world's top shooters, casual competitors, and the next generation of competitive shooters.
The NRA World Shooting Championship offers $250,000 in cash and prizes. Each competitor has the opportunity to be crowned the World Shooting Champion and win a cash prize of $25,000. Competitors in the Stock Professional and Amateur divisions will also be eligible to win prizes from a dynamic, exciting prize table.
"We're excited to continue the tradition of the NRA World Shooting Championship, the top competitive shooting event in the world," aid NRA General Operations Executive Director Kyle Weaver. "This year, we've introduced changes to allow professional shooters the opportunity to use their own firearms and ammunition, giving them the ability to compete with the gear they train with in order to maximize their chances of being crowned champion."
Registration for the NRA World Shooting Championship is now open here.
