Rogers, AR – -(Ammoland.com)- Daisy Outdoor Products, America's oldest and leading maker of BB guns and other youth outdoor equipment, is excited to commence the 2018 Daisy National BB Gun Championship Match (Daisy Nationals) this weekend, June 30-July 3 in Rogers, Ark.
This event brings together youth teams ages 8-15 for the 5-Meter National Championship, shooting in four positions (standing, kneeling, sitting and prone) and championships are awarded to teams and individuals.
Teams competing in the 2018 Daisy Nationals have qualified in the top three spots at its state NRA-sanctioned match. At the Daisy Nationals, in addition to marksmanship scores, each competitor will complete a written test that covers gun safety and knowledge of the shooting event, and each competitor’s score on the safety test makes up 25 percent of his or her final score.
Teams in the Daisy Nationals consist of seven members (five competitors and two alternates) and use a muzzle-loaded, single-shot Champion Model 499B BB gun. The Model 499B is the most accurate 5-meter competition BB gun in the world. Teams often come from the 4-H Shooting Sports program, but any community, youth or religious organization can create a team too. The Royal Rangers sends multiple teams to the championship each year.
Daisy is looking forward to enjoying a fun event filled with frills, thrills and of course friendly competition. In addition to the competition, Daisy throws plenty of extras into the mix, like Barter Bar night and the T-Shirt and Painted Gun contests. Make sure you join the fun this weekend at the 2018 Daisy National BB Gun Championship Match.
