Rockcastle Shooting Center Welcomes the World to South Central Kentucky


Rockcastle Shooting Center, the nation’s premier shooting competition site is proud to welcome the 9th NRA World Action Pistol Championships. The match will take place May 16-17, 2014.

It’s only the second time in the history of the prestigious match that the United States has hosted the competition. Rockcastle Shooting Center at Park Mammoth Resort will roll out the red carpet for the prominent action pistol championship which draws competitors from around the world. Nick Noble, CEO of Rockcastle Shooting Center said, “We are honored to draw another international shooting event here to South Central Kentucky and the fact that this is a World championship makes this an even bigger feather in our cap.”

The action pistol championships which starts on May 16 was last held in Germany and will include more than 100 competitors from the U.S. and 70 from throughout the world. The list of action pistol experts registered to shoot in the match is a “whose who” list of the best shooters in the world, including current World Champions Doug Koenig (U.S. – Men’s) and Jessie Duff (U.S – Women’s).

The NRA World Action Pistol Championships which is held every two years has last seen stops in Germany and Australia in the past four years. The NRA World Action Pistol Championship match consists of four events – The Practical, Barricade, Mover and Falling Plates – which are shot over the course of two days. The aggregate of each individual’s score in the four events determines the winner of the Championship, and each competitor’s final placing. The format of the World Championship is very similar to that of the prestigious Bianchi Cup; everything from the courses of fire to the evening social activities.
