WSC World Shooting Championship WV Peacemaker Glengary

Are you an ace with pistol, rifle, and shotgun. Would you like to compete shoulder-to-shoulder with the nation’s best multi-gun competitors? Then consider registering for the 2019 World Shooting Championship. Over $250,000 worth of cash and prizes are up for grabs. There are two divisions, Professional and Amateur. All guns and ammo are supplied, but entry fees are steep.

Now in its sixth consecutive year, the NRA World Shooting Championship (WSC) will be returning to the Peacemaker National Training Center in Glengary, WV, Sept. 18-21, 2019. The WSC attracts some of the biggest names in the industry, while remaining open to amateurs.

This unique 3-day multi-gun match tests competitors’ skills across twelve challenging stages involving nearly every major shooting discipline for rifles, shotguns, and pistols. Stages this year will include fan favorites like 3-Gun, High-Power Silhouette, Cowboy Action, and more. For more information on the match, check out wsc.nra.org or email NRAhighpower@nrahq.org. To sign up for the 2019 WSC event, visit competitor.nra.org and start by creating create a login.

There are still some places open for competitors. It ain’t free though — each competitor must fork several hundred dollars to enter (in 2018, fees were $375 for Pros and $325 for amateurs). On the other hand, the guns and ammo are FREE. That’s right, the WSC supplies all firearms and ammunition for all 12 stages. In one stage you may be shooting a new Ruger rifle, then a Beretta shotgun, and then a pistol supplied by SIG Sauer or Walther.

All the Equipment is Supplied
“What makes this event very unique, especially to a professional shooter, is all the equipment is supplied. You have to leave your ego at home and just try to adapt as best you can to the equipment that you have supplied.” — Jerry Miculek

The 12 WSC stages encompass everything from trap to bullseye pistol to PRS-style precision rifle. There was even a cowboy action stage with Henry “Golden Boy” lever-action rifles.

How to Win the World Shooting Championship

“The format at the NRA World Shooting Championship is unique in that you don’t know what you have to shoot until you show up, so training for the event is a little difficult. My advice is to pack some good eye and ear protection, bring an open mind, be prepared to listen to the stage descriptions, figure out the best way you can take the guns they provide, and post the best score you can. When the match supplies all the guns and ammo, all you have to do is deal with ‘the performance’. This is the most level playing field in the shooting sports — anyone from around the world can come and play.” — Bruce Piatt, 2015 NRA World Shooting Champion
