From a young shooter’s first BB gun to sophisticated air rifles, shotguns, muzzleloaders, pistols, and rifles, the Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program offers family fun and enjoyment that can last a lifetime.
Qualification shooting is an informal, year-round recreational shooting activity that provides incentive awards for developing and improving marksmanship skills. It’s a drill. We set the standards; you meet the challenge! Progression is self-paced and scores are challenging but attainable. Performance is measured against established par scores and any shooter who meets or exceeds those scores is entitled to the corresponding recognition awards for that rating.
Take your shooting skills to the next level and challenge yourself in the NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program today!
UPCOMING DATES & SIGN-UP
Courses of Fire
The courses of fire in the qualification program are designed to take shooters from beginning skill levels (Pro-Marksman and Marksman) through intermediate levels (Marksman 1st Class, Sharpshooter, and Expert) up to the nationally recognized skill level and the pinnacle of the program, Distinguished Expert. By the time a shooter completes the Distinguished Expert rating in rifle or pistol, he/she has attained a proficiency level paralleling that of a competitively classified Sharpshooter. Qualification shooting can be conducted anywhere including public ranges, at your favorite club range, or even on your own home range.
Program is for children ages 10-17.
Participants aged 10-17 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian in order for the child to participate in the live fire sessions on the range.
We highly encourage parents/guardians to stay with their child during the program and activities.
