I'm going to try to make Camp Perry this year

Post by Yleefox » Mon Apr 23, 2018 11:14 pm

I want to finally try competing at Camp Perry this year and I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what to bring, other than my service pistol and ammo of course. I've gotten pretty old so I have no illusions when it comes to winning, but I would at least like to try competing. Any advice is welcome.

It's great that you are planning to go. Note the big change....the NRA National Pistol Championships have been hosted at Camp Perry since 1907 . As of this year, that is no longer the case. The NRA has moved the National Championship to Camp Atterbury, Edinburgh, Indiana. July 1-5, 2020.
There will still be matches at Camp Perry in 2020. They will be run under the auspices of the Civilian Marksmanship Program. The schedule and structure of the matches has yet to be announced (aFAIK).

VERY complete info about the matches is usually available at the website for New Jersey Pistol (njpistol.com). As of today, there is no info yet available for the 2020 matches.

Here's a couple links:

Second the rules:

I'm planning on Perry this year, not Atterbury.
