How many year of non participation before your classification expires? Is it longer for a High Master classification? Of my three rifle classifications all have expired except mid range. I've had thoughts of suffering through one match just to keep it. HM came easy for me as a 40 year old rifle shooter but as a 60 plus year old pistol shooter, forget it!

3 for everything except HM, which is 5.

Although I don't think the NRA is in any hurry to expire the classifications; I still have an active classification in Free Pistol and the last match I shot was 4-1/2 years ago.

Thanks for the link to competitor activity, John. I see that the last MRP match I shot was in 9/13. I guess it's limber up the old shoulder for the match this weekend, or let it go.

I'm sure they'll get to it right after your request for Camp Perry 2019 dates.

LOL, Chris needs to pass along some of that Amsoil to the NRA committee and he can get any dates he wants.

Well, all of the above (ignore Chris) is mostly true.

According to the "The Book:"

"19.9 Obsolete Classification and Scores - All classifications
and scores (including temporary, Rule 19.14) except Master, shall
become obsolete if the competitor does not fire in NRA compe-
tition at least once during 3 successive calendar years. Master
classifications and scores shall become obsolete if the competitor
does not fire in NRA competition at least once during 5 successive
calendar years. Lifetime Master Classifications will not become
obsolete."

So, technically, us HMs need to show up more often than the MAs, but I think in reality, john is correct.

Proof once again that having a rule book is more important than knowing the rule book.

I stand corrected.

So, 'Lifetime Master' got replaced sometime back in the last century by 'HM', at least in rifle. Which, to my fading mind at least, suggests HM is a permanent classification.

Gimme a few more years to see if it changes to 'unclassified' like all the rest I have.

I still think you're right in the application of the rule.  I hope not to test it.  Right now I need to do some training to shoot within my class.

If it’s any consolation, I found in Highpower it proved as difficult to maintain as it was to achieve that classification.  Particularly with service rifle.

My local club holds an outdoor 2700 every month all year (it's TX).  But they are all on Sunday, the one day I can't get to them.  Three years of trying to get them to run one or two on a Saturday have all failed.  Only time I get to shoot there is when they hold a Regional or State and are forced by size to push it to 2 days.

They sure are not in a hurry to send out any classifications either!

Meh. Nothing stopping you from shooting in a higher class (except HM).

Although I will agree that it's nice to get the card as a record of your achievement.

Took a break from competition for 18 years from 1996 to 2014.  The Classification lookup tool still showed me as a Master class shooter...
