Dear NRA Competitions Division,

Per https://competitions.nra.org/media/7366/prelim-precision-pistol-individual-results.pdf , I am inclined to believe that I won the 2018 Precision Pistol NRA Indoor National Championships, and thus should have received a "Norman R. Adair Trophy Plaque, Gold-Tone National Championship Medallion and 50 award points".

I have not.

This makes me sad.

If I did not, indeed, win the competition in question, can you please inform me who did?

Furthermore, if I did win this competition, can you please let me know when I may expect my awards?

Sincerely,

John Bickar

John, for some reason the link you shared comes up with an error.  Attached it 4U, OH and congrats!

John fixed the link so I deleted the attachment.

p.s. I think it errors because the comma is part of the hyperlink.  When I copied and pasted and removed the comma, it worked.

Thank you both, I fixed the link (I think), but I'm mostly wondering why it's January and the NRA hasn't sent out awards from a match that I shot last March.

Has anyone else received their Sectional awards?

Yep the link works now I'm going to delete the attachment in my previous post to free up server space.
When was the last Sectional shot?  I thought I saw one listed in Nov.?

Again great shooting!

Or maybe it’s “in the NRA cloud”.

Shooting well is award enough....

Congratulations and 891!  

But you do need to get your x-count up...

True, but there were more than one with higher x counts.  Less points but higher....

And there’s another meaning to “get your x-count up”...

I received my awards several( I'm guessing) months ago.  It's been a while.

Greeting Popcorn John,

Your avatar, please describe the Distinguished Awards for me from left to right.

I think they are Pistol, International, unknown to me, and Rifle.

Hope you like "healthy" popcorn.

Cheers,

Dave

The last 2 times I won sectional awards, they showed up in early-mid November,  which I  thought was an excessively long time

BTW no word from NRA Competitions yet. I did get some popcorn from Dave Wilson, though, so I have that going for me.

Which is nice.

Still no response from NRA Competitions to my inquiry.

However, in the past week, I have received the following emails from the NRA:


  • 38 Different 9mm Loads & more
  • We Will Not Cower, and We Will Not Falter, We Will Stand Strong for Our Freedoms
  • New Guns & Gear from SHOT Show 2019 & more
  • REST ASSURED!
  • U.S. Supreme Court (Finally) Takes Another Second Amendment Challenge to a Gun Control Law
  • NRA Women's Wilderness Escape coming to your area



I am starting to get the sense that competitive shooting is not the primary focus of the National Rifle Association.

Greetings John,

Tell me more about the "Women's Wilderness Escape". Sounds like fun.

I will bring some old "Jiffy-Pop" to use over the camp fire.

Cheers,

The NRA has turned into AARP. They exist to generate donations for their salaries.

Still nothing. I emailed comphelp@nrahq.org again today asking about awards for the 2018 National Indoor Pistol Championship.

I continue to have the sense that competitive shooting is not the primary focus of the National Rifle Association.

I hear this is the last year for NRA award points; I'm running out of opportunities to spend them, so if I have some coming to me, the clock is ticking.
