NRA Hires Lady Shooter to Run High Power Program

Janet Tomsyn Raab, a Distinguished prone and position shooter and ISSF Class ‘A’ coach, has been named National Manager of the NRA’s High Power Rifle Programs. thinks Raab is a great choice. Not only is Raab an accomplished shooter with victories in both national and international competition, but she shoots a 6BR in 300m matches for the USA women’s team. We think Raab will bring a fresh new perspective to her position and do a great job promoting competitive shooting among women and juniors. Rabb founded Center Shot Sports in Centreville, VA and coaches junior athletes in the area.

Raab achieved her Distinguished Badge in High Power Service Rifle in 1986 and her International Distinguished Shooter Badge in 2006. One of only three Class “A” International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) coaches in the United States, Raab is the only woman High Power Rifle competitor to win the coveted Nathan Hale Trophy as High Civilian in the National Trophy Individual match at Camp Perry. Janet was also on the USA 300m Women’ Prone Team that won the ISSF World Championship in Croatia.

Raab’s responsibilities include managing the Competitive Shooting Department’s High Power Rifle competitions and programs. She works with State Associations and local clubs to enhance current programs while developing new ones. Raab can be reached at NRA Headquarters at (703) 267-1479.
