Top Gun Challenge has begun!

August 26th, 2017 - The 2017 Top Gun Challenge (TGC) has begun!


TGC rewards mastery of four types of military rifles: AR15, M14/M1a, M1, and 1903 Springfield each year in August, September, October, and November respectively.


The first match (AR15) of the 2017 TGC was fired on Aug 19. Mr Jack McKinney, club member and long time HP shooter was the winner with a near perfect score of 497-21X out of a possible score of 500-50X.

Jack holds a NRA Master classification and has participated numerous times with the Virginia Rifle Team at the National Matches, where he contributed to several national level team wins. He is also a multiple winner of the Presidents 100 honors and is a CMP Distinguished Rifleman.

Congratulations to Jack on an outstanding performance!

TGC is but one of the offerings in the high power program. Spring League (March/April), is an NRA sanctioned 4 match series. NRA sanctioning allows the shooters to earn or advance an NRA classification. Monthly (Jan/Feb/April/May/Jun/Jul/Dec), non NRA sanctioned matches are also fired.

All matches consist of an NRA or CMP course of fire from four positions: standing, sitting rapid fire, prone rapid fire, and prone slow fire. In all club sponsored High Power matches shooters need not be a club member to participate. Nor do they need to be an NRA or state association member, although membership is highly encouraged. Tell your family and friends.

For more info on the high power program contact the match director, Dan Gray, dtgray@verizon.net.
