Lena Miculek receives her $3,000 High Lady check from NRA Competitive Shooting Division Director Cole McCulloch. Miculek placed 12th overall, but as the highest scoring lady she earned the title and prize money for the second year in a row.
A wide variety of competitors were in attendance this year. Pictured is 2017 NRA National Pistol Champion Jon Shue shooting the USPSA stage. The pistol in his hands is the Walther PPQ 5-inch 9 mm, firing Aguila Ammo.
Now here is something you definitely do not see everyday. A former Top Shot competitor (William Bethards, left), the latest generation of one of the greatest shooting families of all time (Lena Miculek, center), and a former Marine turned NRA Precision Pistol Champion (Jon Shue, right) all shooting NRA Bullseye on the same firing line with the same pistol, the Kimber Gold Match .45 ACP with Aguila ammo. Only at the NRA World Shooting Championship!
Longtime readers with good eyes (and memories) will recognize this shooter with the Surgeon Rifles .308 AI AT Chassis and Leupold Mark 6 3-18x44 riflescope—it's former Shooting Sports USA Managing Editor Tes Salb. These days, Tes is an Account Executive for Aguila Ammunition.
For your viewing pleasure, Shooting Sports USA has made this gallery of our favorite pictures from the fourth annual NRA World Shooting Championship! Greg Jordan had one of the best performances in shooting sports history, entering the final day of the match with a significant lead, then marching relentlessly to victory—joining previous winners Daniel Horner, Bruce Piatt and Doug Koenig as holder of the coveted title “NRA World Shooting Champion.”
