Camp Perry, Ohio – -(AmmoLand.com)- The 2009 National Trophy Rifle Matches got underway yesterday at Camp Perry, Ohio.

The first two matches have already been completed. The President’s Rifle Match, perhaps the most prestig­ious rifle match in America, will be fired today.

The top 100 out of a total of 1,300 competitors will be­come members of the “President’s 100.”

The winner, who will be determined after a pressure-packed final between the top 20 competitors, by tradi­tion receives a letter of congratu­lations from the President of the United States.

SFC Norman Anderson, USAR, is shown here being congratu­lated by his teammates after he won the 2008 President’s Rifle Match in a closely fought final between the top 20 competitors.  Anderson will be one of the leading contenders to once again make it into this year’s Presidents Rifle Match Final.
