A historic competition, the first Pershing Trophy Match was conducted at Bisley, England, in 1931, with teams from the United States and Great Britain participating
A living legend will coach the United States Pershing Team this summer during the 2022 NRA National Matches at Camp Atterbury. Retired U.S. Army Colonel Bruce Meredith, age 85, has accepted the offer to lead the 2022 U.S. Pershing Team that will compete against the British shooters traveling to Indiana in August for the Pershing International Trophy Match.
Sixteen athletes from the Pershing squad and supporters group gathered at the NSRA West Midlands range at Aldersley on a wet Saturday 18th June. Friday the 17th at 31°C would have been more ideal in mimicking likely conditions at Camp Atterbury, but by Saturday the heatwave had turned into a “coldwave” with temperatures of 14°C.
The squad were on good form and the top scores were a mix of 1600/1599s. Simon Green shot the only highest possible score 200-20x at 50 yards and ended up with a score of 1600-136x tied with Ken Bowley. The tie was broken using the total number of xs at 100 yards, 151 to Ken’s 149.

Four sets of 'knock down' targets are available with a static paper target above each 'knock down' target for sighting in your rifle. Range fees are £10 per hour.
We have a 'special opening offer' on the 15th, 16th and 17th June; plus if you are an NSRA member your first hour is free, so a great time to join the NSRA! Find out about our membership benefits here: https://membership.nsra.co.uk/
