The 2017 NRA Intercollegiate Pistol Cham­pionships were held at Fort Benning in Columbus, GA, on March 20-24. The home of the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU), Fort Benning has hosted the match for 10 consecutive years. The AMU has given tremendous support to this match, and the NRA Intercollegiate Championships as a whole.

The Intercollegiate Pistol Championships determine the NRA National Collegiate Individual and Team Champions in Free Pistol, Standard Pistol, Open Air Pistol, Women’s Air Pistol and Women’s Sport Pistol. The National Collegiate Team and Individual Champions in ROTC Stan­dard Pistol are also decided. Invitations to the Championships are determined from scores fired in the NRA Intercollegiate Pistol Sectionals held throughout the country earlier this year. Competitors and schools nationwide attend the Championships each year.
