2019 USARB Nationals at NRA Whittington Center
Hello everyone,

We are pleased to announce that the 2019 USARB Nationals will be held at the NRA Whittington Center in Raton, New Mexico on October 18th, 19th, and 20th. 

The NRA Whittington Center is a 35,000 acre shooting facility with everything a shooter could desire. If you also shoot firearms, bring them along. There is a range for everything. Please browse the NRA Whittington Shooting Center Site for more specific information. 

The weather in the high desert of New Mexico is outstanding in October. Daytime highs will likely be in the mid 60s with lots of sunshine and blue skies. The low humidity makes it very comfortable.

The Coors Benchrest range at Whittington Center has 75 concrete benches on an open landscape that provides an equal opportunity for every bench number. There are no berms, structures, or impediments to the wind anywhere near the shooting line. Along with bench rotation each card, this should ensure each shooter has the same chance to perform well throughout the competition. The additional fact that this range is home to no club means that those traveling will not be competing against anyone with a home court advantage.

There is a 100y indoor building behind the range where individuals may sight in their rifles. This building will also be used for meetings, scoring, lunch, and hanging scored cards for viewing. 

There is on site housing to accommodate about 200 shooters. There are cabins available to suit all needs. RV spaces with full water/electric hookups are available as well as primitive camping.

If you are not interested in staying on site... you can find nice hotels and motels in nearby Raton. See this link for more local accommodations.
  newbielink: https://www.nrawc.org/about-us/local-information/  [nonactive]   

The event will offer LV, HV, Open, and Spring Piston classes. Friday will be sight in and practice. Saturday will be LV and HV. Sunday will be Open and Spring piston. Awards will follow Spring Piston on Sunday. We will post exact times at a later date.

Awards will be given for top three in each class with an additional award for 3 gun aggregate comprised of LV, Hv, and Open. 

Registration will be $100.00, and $25.00 for each class. Lunch will be included each day with registration cost. 

If you care to utilize the other firearm ranges after the BR matches have finished, there will be the standard 20$ daily range fee per person payable to the Whittington Center. To save money....you may, instead, opt for a 50$ family annual membership or a 30$ individual annual membership if you intend to use the other range facilities more than one day. Shotguns are also available to rent.

There is a registration form attached...along with a pic of the view down the line.

Thank You, and look forward to seeing you there!

Some very interesting information on the 2019 U.S. Airgun National Benchrest Championships held at Whittington Shooting center,  N.M.                                                                                                             

There is an excellent 100-yard Indoor Benchrest facility located near the benchrest range.  Mike is looking into the possibility of using this building to zero and test the rifles and pellets.  This sounds like it would be worth the trip just to shoot in this 100-yard indoor range.  Looking forward to meeting everyone.  Doug and Vipha
