The 22BPCRA National Championship is celebrating a few milestones in 2023.

1. This is our 11th National Championship!

2. The .22 BPCR sport as we know it now, is celebrating its 20th year being shot at the Whittington Center using metal "knock-down" targets. Prior to that time the match was shot using "swinger-only targets" near the Coors' range.

3. The great covered firing line on the Long-range pistol range at the Whittington Center was funded by the silhouette .22 BPCR & Lever Action shooters! Funds raised by both groups were donated to the WC leadership with the intention of covering the firing line. In 2006 the project of covering the shooting line was completed! No more laying in the open, which comes in real handy for protection from the hot sun and the afternoon rain storms!

4. Also, new for this year is the Association is raffling off a super nice rifle!! If you would like to try and win a Winchester 1885 Low Wall High Grade (only 1100 of them made and yes it has the cute gold animals on it) 22 Long Rifle complete with MVA sights…. you’ll get your chance at the match. Tickets will be sold for $10 each, 6 for $50 or 12 for $100 and the winner will be drawn during our awards ceremony/dinner. A maximum of 500 tickets may be sold and we will limit folks to a max of 12 tickets per person. The winner must be present to take the rifle home…or we draw another name.

Entries are filling quickly with 1/8 of the slots taken. The International Showdown BPCR match (THE real National Championship as voted on by competitor participation) is at 1/6th filled so don’t delay. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email me or any of the Directors as our email addresses are posted on the 22BPCRA webpage.

Thank you and look forward to seeing you in July in sunny New Mexico!

President, 22BPCRA
