On Thursday, June 25, the NRA released a statement regarding the cancellation of the 2020 NRA World Shooting Championship and the NRA National Police Shooting Championships. The 2020 NRA World Shooting Championship had been scheduled for Sept. 16-19 at the Peacemaker National Training Center in Glengary, WV. NPSC was scheduled for Sept. 19-21 in Pearl, MS.

Read the full statement below.

Due to the circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic and the many ensuing federal and state safety regulations and mandates, the NRA has made the difficult decision to cancel the NRA World Shooting Championship and the NRA National Police Shooting Championships. Both events were scheduled to be held in mid-September 2020 in West Virginia and Mississippi, respectively.

We share your disappointment that both of these competitions that attract participants from across the globe had to be cancelled. The NRA wishes everyone good health and the best of luck. Stay safe and healthy.
