Greetings,

Looking at the 2600, 2650, and 2670 roster, I do not see any updates since 2017.

http://pistol-competition.nra.org/2600-2650-2670-clubs.aspx

With all the "trick" red dots, guns, and ammo we have access to why are we not scoring higher?

Cheers,

Dave

A long time ago, I sent in a Bulletin, noting my breaking 2600, per NRA requirements.  When I checked the list at Perry, I was not on it.  I followed up, but no luck.  Needless to say I am underwhelmed by the NRA's record keeping abilities.

Keep following up. I think it took me over a year to get my 2650 Club membership recognized.

It was important to me.

When I made the 2600 club in 1996 and 2650 club in 2002, i believe it took about two weeks to get recognized. That was a better time though, when the NRA was actually interested in the competitors.

Did you receive a medal and certificate? If not, send an email or call telling them when and where you broke 2600. I assumed it was automatic, but recently contacted them asking about it and received an email in a day or two and my swag in a couple of weeks.

I have not broken 2600, but I was told if I ever did, be sure to tell the match director to note it on the paperwork they send in to the NRA.  I don't think their computers automatically recognize 'club' membership.

Now, to answer the question ‘With all the "trick" red dots, guns, and ammo we have access to why are we not scoring higher?’  Maybe we are spending too much time trying to improve our stuff instead of ourselves.

Greetings,

When you fire above 2600, 2650, or 2670 you have to send the match bulletin to the NRA.

It is not an "automatic" event.

I did receive a very nice Blackingon 2600 medallion for my effort in 2006. (2605)

Later, I wrote and asked about the 2600 lapel pin. They were courteous enough to honor my request.

My Father-in-Law, Richard Amundsen, broke 2600 in 1958. At that time the NRA sent out pen holders for your desktop. This award is in our curio cabinet.

Cheers,

Dave

Well, some people may have issues for different reasons.  

Remember you have to shoot the score at an Approved or Registered match and the match director has to provide the SR-1 form.  

You can send in a match bulletin, but if the match is not on the NRA list of Approved or Registered matches then you are out of luck.  

Oh, and the match director better include the fees, completed SR-1 and your correct NRA number or name and address, etc. 

I've  never had an issue with the NRA automatically recognizing when shooter got 2600 or better, but then again I did highlight the score on the SR-1 card if I knew it was a first (You can generally tell from the big smile on the shooter's face!). 

People or processes may have changed so it would be good idea to get the MD to note it on the SR-1

For those that have been waiting on 2600 or better recognition by the NRA, and have ensured that the Match Director has informed the NRA, and have attempted follow-up with the NRA with no response...please "PM" me with your info, and I will contact the NRA as well and try to help speed up the recognition process.  NRA has one person working in their Pistol dept, and things are taking longer.  However, the wait should not be more than a couple of months, at the longest.

Happy to help,

Ted,

Thank you for your attention and kind offer to help.  I think it was at least 18 yrs ago when I broke 2600 for the first time in a registered tournament.  It meant a lot more to me then, and the sense of personal accomplishment was and still is the most important - recognition by others not so much.  I will probably just let it go at this late date, but I do appreciate all you do for us on the BoD.

Cheers.

Thank you Ted. In defense of the person working the pistol department, I sent an email a few months ago. I got an email response within 1 or 2 working days and within received the package in a couple of weeks. 

I was happy with the response. Give them an "attaboy" from me.
