Trijicon, Inc., global provider of innovative aiming solutions for the hunting, shooting, military and law enforcement markets, has joined forces with the National Rifle Association and leading industry manufacturers to create a championship format that will be the ultimate test of competitive shooting ability. Trijicon’s World Shooting Championship will assemble competitors from around the world, including existing and previous champion shooters from virtually every organized shooting sport, and crown one competitor, “The Undisputed World Shooting Champion”, a distinction that is unmatched in history!
The 1st Annual Trijicon World Shooting Championship will be held at the Peacemaker National Training Center in Glengary, W.V., on September 10-13, 2014. The Champion will receive $50,000.00 first place cash prize. Cash prizes for individual stages will also be awarded. In addition, event prize table items are valued at over $150,000.
“We are extremely pleased to title sponsor this very unique competition,” said Tom Munson, Trijicon Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This event will bring the best shooters in the world together to compete in an exciting new format that’s designed to level the playing field and truly determine who is the best overall competition shooter in the world.”
All shooters will compete over the course of four days in twelve equally-weighted, nationally recognized disciplines from various shooting sports. All firearms and ammunition will be provided for each event, thus shooters will compete with common firearms and ammunition. Specialized equipment selected for each discipline will be provided for all competitors, alleviating the need for participants to secure new equipment for unfamiliar events and reduce or eliminate potential issues with international and domestic travel for all competitors.
The NRA’s Competitive Shooting Division will manage and score the match with the assistance of the Peacemaker National Training Center match staff.
