Robert Gustin of Cameron Park, CA, is this year’s NRA National Mid-Range Champion. Gustin’s score of 2395-168X was just four points below his winning score at last year’s championship. His awards included a Patriot Minuteman plaque and a gold-tone NRA national championship medallion.

Kevin Nevius of Gibsonburg, OH, and Gustin both shot well for the duration of the match, with Gustin managing the take home the win. Nevius, however, shot a record-breaking 200-20X in the 600 yard any sights match, one of the several matches that make up the championship aggregate. [Note: Mark DelCotto first shot 20X at 600 yards with iron sights in 2007 at Camp Perry. Kent Reeve scored 20X with iron sights in 2012.]
