NRA National Pistol Championships

Due to the current state of affairs surrounding COVID-19, the uncertainties associated with this pandemic at present, and shutdowns across our country that has impeded vital preparatory work, the National Rifle Association has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 NRA Precision Pistol Championships.

We are trying to make the best of the current situation by moving forward with range construction and other improvements as we look towards the 2021 NRA National Championships season. The NRA is also exploring the feasibility of hosting a variety of new NRA events at Camp Atterbury (if conditions are favorable) with the state of Indiana later this year.

We share your disappointment that we had to cancel these competitions. The NRA wishes everyone good health and the best of luck. Stay safe and healthy.

The National Pistol Matches, considered America’s “World Series of the Shooting Sports,” have been a tradition since 1907. Each summer, the nation’s finest civilian and military marksmen and women square off for one week of handgun competition in a variety of formats and events.

If you want to test your accuracy and precision with a handgun, come join us at Camp Atterbury for one of the longest-running pistol events in the nation.
