Arizona put two teams in the National Matches run at Camp Perry!
Phoenix Rod & Gun Club fielded the Adult team.
ASRPA's Arizona Scorpions is the Junior team.

Since 1907, the annual National Matches have been held at Camp Perry, Ohio and are mostly run by the CMP. the Service Rifle stages of the matches consist of three

individual matches followed by three team matches.

There were about 20 civilian shooters from Arizona, 7 of them teenagers on the Junior Team.

Arizona Adult NTIT team.

These matches all included stages at 200, 300 and 600 yards, with standing, sitting and prone stages, some

slow fire, some rapid fire. Every AZ shooters, like nearly every shooter at the event used an AR-15 Rifle.

All used 4.5X scopes except for a few dinosaurs with iron sights.

The first individual match was a warmup called the Oliver Hazard Perry Match, named after Commodore Perry.

With a perfect 300 points, AZ shooter Dave G came in 2nd place out of 792 shooters.

Next came the President's Match, the top 100 shooters earn the right to wear the "President's 100" badge.

Three AZ shooters, one a junior, were in the top 100. There were 179 Juniors and 83 women in this match of

1073 shooters.

Then the National Trophy Individual Match. This is the match where shooters who perform in the top 10%

numerous times (over several state and national matches) can earn the Distinguished Rifleman badge, probably

the highest achievement an average shooter can aspire to. 1007 shooters competed. 818 of them civilian, of

the 19 Arizona civilians, 3 were in the top 10%, two are already Distinguished Riflemen, one, Dave F of

Phoenix is now one step closer.

Then came the 2-man "Hearst" team match, named after the trophy donated nearly 100 years ago by William

Randolf Hearst. Of 293 adult teams, the highest placed AZ team came in 92nd place. (Juniors shot a different

match this day).

on of the AZ Scorpions Junior 2-man teams, plus coach, on the stage at the Awards Ceremony!

Then the National Trophy Team Match, 6 shooters, 50-shots each. Of 41 teams, The PRGC team came in 19th place

and the Scorpions, 23rd.

The final big Team Trophy Match named after the "Infantry Trophy" is the National Infantry Trophy Team Match,

often called "Rattle Battle" since its all rapid fire at 600, 500, 300 and 200yds in that order! 35 teams

entered, PRGC was 23rd place and the Scorpions 24th place!

Before the last piece of brass hit the ground we were already talking about next year!

Funny CMP rule: every team must have at least one NEW SHOOTER! so the adult team will be looking for new

shooters and of course the junior team needs to replace every member who turns 21 and can no longer shoot as

a junior! So both teams will be recruiting new members this fall, stand by for more info!
