Whidden Wins! John Whidden Re-Captures NRA Long-Range Title

The 2010 NRA National Long Range Rifle Champion is John Whidden of Whidden Gunworks. Whidden, a soft-spoken shooter from Georgia, amassed an overall score of 1243-75x, topping the USAMU’s Brandon Green (1240-60X) by three points. John was way ahead of Green in X-Count. We’re proud to see John, who provided match reports for, back on top of the podium. As great a shooter as he is, John is one of the most humble champions you’ll ever meet. Bravo John!

This is Whidden’s third NRA Long-Range National Championship, following his Long-Range Championship wins in 2007 and 2008. Sherri Gallagher took the Long-Range Championship in 2009, but this year she must content herself with a record-breaking performance in the High Power Championship. After notching an impressive third Long-Range victory, John no doubt has his sights set on #4 and #5 in the years ahead. John would need five (5) long-range titles to tie the legendary David Tubb.
