This year’s NRA Precision Pistol National Championships were held July 17-23. One of the three major championships that comprise the NRA National Matches, the 2022 NRA Precision Pistol Nationals were fired for the second year at Camp Atterbury, an Indiana National Guard facility located near Edinburgh, Indiana.

Below are 20 great photos from this summer at the 2022 NRA Precision Pistol National Championships at Camp Atterbury.
