The 2016 NRA World Shooting Championship will be held September 15-17, 2016 at the Peacemaker National Training Center in Glengary, WV. The competition gathers the top shooters in the world to compete in a comprehensive contest of competitive shooting sports, with stages in pistol, rifle, shotgun, and combined firearms disciplines. Last year, Bruce Piatt won $25,000 after being crowned the 2015 undisputed World Shooting Champion.

First through third place overall will win cash prizes. Additionally, there will be large Stock Professional and Amateur prize tables. There will be at least $250,000 in cash and prizes offered.

There have been some changes in the format of the championship. Shooters will still have to prove their marksmanship skills over twelve challenging shooting stages. New for 2016 shooters are able to register in one of three divisions: Open Professional, Stock Professional or Amateur.

Open Professional
The Open Professional Division is for sponsored shooters who wish to bring their own firearms and ammunition for competition. Open Professionals will only be eligible for cash prize awards. An Open Professional can be a member of the military.

Firearms must match the platform type, optics type and caliber of those firearms being provided by the NRA. The firearm does not have to be an exact match, but can vary in barrel length, stock configuration, and optics power. Open Professionals will only be allowed the same round count as authorized to other competitors on that stage.

Stock Professional
Essentially, a Stock Professional Shooter is a pro shooter who is using planning on competing with all host-provided firearms and ammunition. Stock Professionals may be a member of the military as well.

Amateur
The Amateur Division is for shooters who are not sponsored and will compete with all firearms and ammunition provided. You should register as an Amateur if you do NOT receive any financial support, products or services in competitive shooting activities, not a member of the military, and plan to use all provided firearms and ammunition provided by the host.
