Big news for High Power Rifle fans—the National Rifle Association will be using Silver Mountain Targets electronic target systems during the 2022 National Matches at Camp Atterbury, Ind.

“Over the past year, the NRA has been working with the Indiana State Rifle and Pistol Association (ISRPA), as well as the Central Indiana High Power Rifle Shooters (CIHPRS) in order to bring electronic targets to the NRA National Matches,” said Joseph P. DeBergalis Jr., Executive Director of NRA General Operations. “The NRA is thrilled to be working closely with the Indiana National Guard, ISRPA, CIHPRS and Silver Mountain Targets in order to provide a great future for the competitive-shooting sports in Indiana.”

The NRA determined that Silver Mountain Targets were proven effective across the world and at Camp Atterbury for NRA competition.

“In 2019, the ISRPA chose Silver Mountain Targets for our High Power matches including the ISRPA Across the Course State Championships and the Governor’s Cup match in 2019,” said ISRPA President Charles Hiltunen. “We did an extensive comparison of alternatives and Silver Mountain Targets best fit our needs. Since then, we have been happy with the targets and support we receive. ISRPA is excited to support the NRA in extending this valuable technology to the National Matches.”

“Silver Mountain Targets is excited to be chosen for the first deployment of this technology at the NRA National Matches. Our advanced modular architecture represents the latest in electronic-target technology,” said David Schnelle, North American distributor for Silver Mountain Targets. “The system is designed to be easily expandable and provide a high level of reliability. System components are battery-powered to simplify deployment on a range and allows the system to operate—even if there is a power outage. Communications between targets and the firing line is through a highly reliable WiFi connection, using any WiFi-capable device to display competitors’ shots.”

“The National Rifle Association is pleased to continue our improvements at Camp Atterbury in order to better serve the competitive-shooting community and further promote the shooting sports,” said Cole McCulloch, Director of NRA Competitive Shooting. “With the Silver Mountain Targets system, we will be able to run more relays in less time and reduce demands on competitors and staff. We are also pleased that technical representatives from Silver Mountain Targets will be on-site for the entire championship to ensure optimum performance and to train NRA staff and volunteers on the technology.”

The 2022 NRA National Matches at Camp Atterbury will run from July 10 to August 7. Go to competitions.nra.org to learn more.
