All-American Field Target Championship in New York 12-14 June

Crosman All-American Field Target Championship

The 2015 edition of the Crosman All-American Field Target Championship (CAAFTC) is set to take place June 12-14 at Rochester Brooks Int’l Skeet and Trap Club (Rush, NY). The CAAFTC is the largest shoot sanctioned by the American Airgun Field Target Association (AAFTA) outside of the national championship. The event is open and free to the public, making it a great opportunity to watch the nation’s most skilled field target shooters.

Competitors will have 120 shots over two days to determine winners in divisions and classes that are based on the airgun and support equipment they use. “Field target is a fantastic event for families or anyone with an interest in shooting”, says Mark DeBoard, Manager of Shooting Services for Crosman. “You’ll see guns ranging from popular break-barrel models up to rifle and scope combinations costing thousands of dollars.”

Crosman Regional Transformed into a National Event
In just five years Crosman Coporation has grown its regional field target competition into the country’s second largest, behind only the AAFTA national championship. The event, now called the “Crosman All-American Championship” was moved from July to June to better accommodate the nearly 100 competitors in six air rifle disciplines. The weekend will kickoff on Friday, June 12 with sighting-in and the popular Quigley Bucket Challenge. Walk-ins are welcome. The entry free for the two-day rifle competition is $75.00 and includes a free entry to the pistol match.

Quigley Bucket Challenge
Always a favorite pre-event competition, the Quigley Bucket Challenge is a re-creation of the dramatic scene in the film Quigley Down Under in which Tom Selleck’s character must shoot a bucket at 700 yards. Scaled for airguns, this equates to a 1.75″ target placed at 55 yards. Shooters must use a 6.5 ft-lb. rifle using only open, non-magnified sights.
