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 High Power Championships scheduled for August 9-25, 2020 and the 2020 NRA Smallbore Championships scheduled for July 23 – August 4, 2020.

The NRA is trying to make the best of the current situation by moving forward with range construction and other improvements as they look toward 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.

The NRA wishes everyone good health and the best of luck. Stay safe and healthy.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NRA is unfortunately suspending all sanctioned matches through April 30, 2020. Any requests for sanctioning of new matches beyond April 30 are also suspended until further notice. As a result of this suspension, the NRA will no longer accept match fees or scores. The NRA will continue to monitor the situation and make additional statements as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds.
