The NRA is now sanctioning the 2021 NRA sectional and regional events. Programs will be posted soon.
The 2021 Collegiate Rifle Championships (which were scheduled for March 20-22, 2021) have been canceled.
At this time, the NRA will continue to sanction localized NRA competitive shooting tournaments, and we will continue to monitor the situation and make additional statements as the Covid-19 pandemic unfolds.
We are trying to make the best of the current situation during these difficult times. We share your disappointment that we had to cancel some of our competitions, and we look forward to the remainder of the 2021 competitive shooting season.
NRA's Competitive Shooting Division offers a wide range of activities in all types of shooting, for everyone from the novice to the world-class competitor. The NRA sanctions over 11,000 shooting tournaments and sponsors over 50 national championships each year.
Any legal, responsible gun owner can compete with others of their approximate skill level. Young and old can and do compete for the same prizes. Participants can become as good as the amount of effort they invest. A person may practice alone or enter a tournament with hundreds of other competitors and the outcome is based totally on one's own ability. It's invariably challenging because a perfect score is rarely fired.
