NRA World Shooting Championship

The NRA World Shooting Championship will take place at Camp Atterbury, Ind., April 4-6, 2024. This ultimate all-encompassing tournament crowns the undisputed “World Shooting Champion” from a pool of both amateur and professional shooters. More than $250,000 in cash and prizes will be up for grabs.

“NRA’s storied history of organizing and executing premier shooting competitions will continue next spring as top shooters convene in Indiana for the NRA World Shooting Championship,” Joseph P. DeBergalis Jr., executive director of NRA General Operations, said. “Competitors of every background and skill level, whether a professional or amateur shooter, will be challenged through a variety of shooting disciplines with the goal of being declared the ‘World’s Greatest Shooter.’”

“The Indiana State Rifle & Pistol Association is proud to be a part of the NRA World Shooting Championship, which is one of the greatest competitive shooting events in the world,” said Charlie Hiltunen, Indiana State Rifle & Pistol Association president and NRA director. “NRA and ISRPA, the state affiliate of the NRA, working with the State of Indiana, Indiana National Guard, and our amazing shooting competition and youth shooting-sports community are laying the foundation for establishing Indiana as the Shooting Sports Capital of the World.”

“Walther is involved in a wide array of competitive shooting sports, and we are thrilled to support this event and the range of competitions which it represents,” Rob McCanna, president and CEO of Walther Arms Inc., said. “Support for the shooting community and support for the NRA go hand-in-hand and we look forward to the return of this one-of-a-kind competition.”

All firearms, optics and ammunition are provided to the competitors for this unique competition. Participants will compete in 12 stages of fire spanning multiple shooting-sport disciplines. Registration will open at 1:00 p.m. EST, Dec. 6, 2023. Competitors who are planning to shoot this match are encouraged to secure their spot as soon as registration opens, as this match has filled up within moments in past years.
