The National Rifle Association of America is excited to announce that the NRA World Shooting Championship, presented by Walther Arms will take place at Camp Atterbury, Indiana, April 4-6, 2024. Being held for the seventh time, the NRA World Shooting Championship is the ultimate all-encompassing tournament which crowns the undisputed “World Shooting Champion” from amateur and professional shooters. More than $250,000 in cash and prizes are available to the field of competitors, with $25,000 awarded to the World Shooting Champion and $1,000 going to the winner of each stage of competition. The NRA, match sponsors and the State of Indiana are again showing their continued commitment to supporting competitive shooting and the Second Amendment.

“NRA’s storied history of organizing and executing premier shooting competitions will continue next spring as top shooters convene in Indiana for the NRA World Shooting Championship,” Joseph P. DeBergalis, Jr., executive director of NRA General Operations, said. “Competitors of every background and skill level, whether a professional or amateur shooter, will be challenged through a variety of shooting disciplines with the goal of being declared the ‘World’s Greatest Shooter.’ NRA is excited for the return of this highly popular championship, and we are grateful for the support from Walther Arms and our partners in the State of Indiana.”

Indiana’s First Lady, Janet Holcomb, will help kick off this historic event and will be joined by executives from Walther Arms, NRA officials and Board Members, and Indiana State Rifle and Pistol Association President Charlie Hiltunen.

“The NRA World Shooting Championship is the ultimate challenge for competitors in any shooting discipline, and I was absolutely thrilled to learn that Indiana will play host in 2024,” Janet Holcomb, the First Lady of the State of Indiana, said. “Camp Atterbury continues to expand its facilities and capacity for events of this nature, making it the perfect location for this elite competition. I know for certain that spectators, and competitors from around the globe, will be greeted with two things; an immensely challenging course of fire, and the Hoosier Hospitality that is the trademark of our great state.”

“The Indiana State Rifle and Pistol Association is proud to be a part of the NRA World Shooting Championship, which is one of the greatest competitive shooting events in the world,” Charlie Hiltunen, Indiana State Rifle & Pistol Association President and NRA Board Member, said. “NRA and ISRPA, the State Affiliate of the NRA, working with the State of Indiana, Indiana National Guard, and our amazing shooting competition and youth shooting sports community are laying the foundation for establishing Indiana as the Shooting Sports Capital of the World.”

“Walther is involved in a wide array of competitive shooting sports, and we are thrilled to support this event and the range of competitions which it represents,” Rob McCanna, president and CEO of Walther Arms, Inc., said. “Support for the shooting community and support for the NRA go hand-in-hand and we look forward to the return of this one-of-a-kind competition.”

All firearms, optics and ammunition are provided to the competitors of the NRA World Shooting Championship in order to level the playing field for this unique competition. Participants will compete in 12 stages of fire spanning multiple shooting sport disciplines.
