USA Shooting is proud to host the Winter Airgun Championships in close partnership with the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) in two locations at once. Athletes may choose from either Anniston, Alabama, or Camp Perry, Ohio, capacity permitting. The competition will take place December 17-20, 2020, and registration is limited to 225 competitors per location.
The Winter Airgun Championships are open to all USAS Members and includes two 60-shot days of competition plus an additional mixed team course of fire on day three. Finals on day three will consist of top scoring athletes as well as a random draw of competitors at each location for the chance to win prizes from USAS Shooting sponsors like ELEY, SKB Cases, 3M Peltor, Orca Coolers, and many more.
Registration will close one week prior to competition. The match entry fee is $195. It is likely that this event will reach competitor capacity prior to entry deadline.
