The 2018 shooting season featured world-class shooting and some memorable moments. Here are a few highlights.

Shooting legend Doug Koenig—who posted a perfect 1920-180x—was the overall winner at the NRA World Action Pistol Championship, leading Team USA to first place at the Green Valley Rifle and Pistol Club in Hallsville, Mo.


Adam Sokolowski, a sergeant first class with the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit,
made history in the Bianchi Cup by sweeping all three divisions—Production, Metallic and Open—as he shot his way to a perfect 1920-176x.

If you’re more into comebacks than perfect scores, the National Matches at Camp Perry, Ohio, should meet that standard. Jonathan Shue overcame a 13-point deficit to edge Sokolowski by two points.

The NRA National High Power Rifle Championship saw Sgt. 1st Class Brandon Green finish on top at Camp Atterbury, Ind. His score of 2394-147 allowed him to take home the Mumma Trophy for the third time. He didn’t rest on his laurels, though—later, he made history by becoming the first u.s. military marksman to capture the Governor’s General Prize during the Canadian Fullbore Rifle Championships.

A collegiate shooter—Elizabeth Gratz, who is on the West Virginia University rifle team—showed off her skills at the NRA Smallbore Rifle Championships, posting a score of 11799-698x during the 11-day event.


Behind the scenes, the NRA Competitive Shooting team worked to make the sport’s registration and record books more accessible.
The technological changes include using rangelog to simplify match registration and offering a redesigned website that makes it easier for shooters to take advantage of resources to improve their game.
