Yes, it’s July again, and that means it is time for the National Shooting Championships at Camp Perry. The events kick off tomorrow with the start of the 5-day Pistol competition.

The NRA National Outdoor Rifle & Pistol Championships are fired at Camp Perry, OH, during July and August. Firing dates for 2008: Pistol – July 8-12; Smallbore 3-Position – July 16-19; Smallbore Prone – July 20-24; High Power Rifle – Aug 4-8; High Power Long Range – Aug 9-13.

If you wish to compete at Camp Perry in an event held later this summer, you can apply via the Camp Perry Online Entry Page. Complete competition results are updated regularly on the NRA website.

There are some key changes at Camp Perry this year:

1. Big money is at stake. Over $200,000 in cash/gift card prizes will be awarded. The cash prizes or Visa award cards replace award points in the Grand Aggregate Championships.

2. A Team Match has been added to the Long-Range High Power segment of competition (August 4-8). Four-person teams will compete using a Palma Course of Fire. This was a popular addition — the Team Match roster is already full.

3. A new target will be used for 3-position shooters in the National Smallbore Rifle Championships.
