USA – -( This announcement follows an earlier National Rifle Association posting in its Competition Registration Portal that showed in error, the NRA Pistol Championships being fired at Camp Perry. The NRA quickly replaced its original pistol schedule posting with the correct information for its events at Camp Atterbury.

As a result of the original posting, the CMP received multiple communications from pistol competitors who sought clarification. All Civilian Marksmanship Program National Trophy Pistol and rifle matches, and CMP Games events will be fired in the National Matches at Camp Perry, near Port Clinton, Ohio, where it has been located since 1907.

It looks like the National Matches are still at Camp Perry, but with a different host. No matter, I am still going there, as I have been since 1978. There’s more to the National Matches than squeezing the trigger.
