Classifications

Post by BE Mike on Mon Aug 17, 2015 1:26 pm

The NRA Competitions Division has been busy. I checked my shooter classifications. Having been pretty inactive for the last couple of years, I saw that 7 of my classifications had lapsed and I only have 2 left. Over many years, I thought that the NRA Competitions Division had been remiss in keeping up with a shooter's classifications. It looks like they are busy little bees and doing a good job in this area.

All of mine are still intact, but I suppose I should expect that to change...

I stopped shooting in 2007 due to a shoulder injury and started back in 2011 and my classification was still current so maybe they have decided to update things

About three years of inactivity.

Master card dated 1984.  Quit shooting in 1996.  Started back in 2014.  At the recommendation of a forum member I checked and found my master classification to still be active... Laughing

Greetings,

I have first hand knowledge of this subject.

After five years of no activity, the classification is deleted and you start over as an "Unclassified" shooter.

Cheers,

Dave

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 competition 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.

My master classification is not from the "Lifetime Master" era....   Sounds like the maintenance and updating of the database is pretty loose...

I think that if you sent an e-mail to the competitions division, they might be able to correct some errors. Some of the errors could have been made before the NRA received the match results. Mistakes on SR-1 cards might explain some of this. Of course, the competition division has been known to make their own errors.

That only applies to Masters, experts and below are only allowed 3 years with no activity, but the nra has not seen fit to enforce these rules in very many years but it seems like they may be doing it now.

19.6 Assigned Classification - A competitor who has an earned classification (a classification obtained through a Score Record Book or an Official NRA Classification Card) for one type of competition in the grouping listed below will be assigned this same classification in any other type in which the competitor is not classified in the same group: (a) Outdoor Pistol (b) Indoor Pistol (c) Police Combat (d) Action Pistol (e) International Pistol (Free, Air, Center, Rapid Fire or Standard) If a competitor has a classification in more than one type in the list, the higher classification shall be used. In the second tournament in the new type, the Score Record Book is used rather than the assigned classification.
