NRA classifications

Post by RussJ on 8/5/2011, 11:02 pm

Hi, so I started shooting a year and a half ago. I only had the .22 until last month for the outdoor matches. I shot 4 900 matches outside. Each time I scored at least 810. This week I got my nra classification card for outside and it is a sharpshooter. Is there a rule that if you don't shoot the 2700 you can't be classified above that or did they make an error in my classification? Wish they would have sent the card a week earlier for the state match since I did really well and my sharpshooter card would have scored me higher than my temporary expert. I have read the nra classification website and I guess I just don't understand it. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Russ

I'd be glad I got the sharpshooter card. I've seen guys come out and shoot well with their 22 and get classified as an Expert and then start shooting Marksman scores with the 45. There's a bit more of a learning curve with the 45.

According to section 19 of the rule book, classification should be based on the average of your last 360 shots. If your average for the last 4 900s was over 90%, as you claim it is, then you should have gotten an Expert card. Not the first time the NRA has made a mistake.

There are no rules requiring you to shoot whole 2700's to get a certain classification. I was in the exact situation that John describes. I started with only a .22 and shot it a lot including leagues for years before venturing to 2700's. By then I was pretty good with it and made Master the first year. The fun started when I got a .45 and would do well and sometimes even win with the .22 and come in dead last in class for the rest of the match. Took 10 years to get to Master class scores with both guns combined. So if you are going to shoot more than the .22 don't be too concerned about your classification with the .22 alone.

Thanks for the answers! I guess the NRA did just put me at the wrong classification. I just shot my first nra 2700 last weekend and got an expert score so it won't be long. Just wish they would have sent it to me a week earlier so I could have competed at sharpshooter!

Thanks,

Russ
