Written by 9:19 am Bullseye, New Mexico State Match, Whittington NRA Center

2022 New Mexico State Precision Pistol Championship

The New Mexico State Precision Pistol Outdoor 2700 Championship and EIC matches will be held on September 9, 10, 11 2022, at the NRA Whittington Center in Raton, NM.

Please find attached application form and match bulletin.

As per our established schedule, we will be shooting EIC matches on Friday 9th (starting at 12 noon) and Saturday 10th (after the 2700 matches). We will be shooting the 2700 on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th, starting at 8AM. Over the years we have dialed on these time, in order to avoid the 3-4PM thunderstorms that are quite typical for the dates in Raton.

Often, we have been asked to shoot EIC matches on Sunday. Please be advised that we are sanctioned to conduct EIC matches only on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th. Choose your schedule carefully, based on that information.

You can choose to shoot over 1 or 2 days. The NRA Whittington Center charges $15 range fee per shooting day (total $15 for one day, $30 for two days). Even if you are a member (I am and they still charge me)  or a benefactor of the NRA Whittington Center, we still need to collect the daily range fee. The range fee is still the same as the past year, but, judging from the exploding inflation and raise of prices, I hold very faint hopes that it will stay the same for next year. The range fee goes toward paying the salaries of the nice people that set up tables, restrooms, speaker system, etc. for us.

Entry form is a PDF file that can be filled on your computer, or, can be printed.

As per our well established, and appreciated, tradition, we will serve a brisket lunch on Saturday and Sunday.  Snacks and water will be available throughout the competition.

Accommodations : The NRA Whittington center has 3 types of on-site accommodations, competitor housing, log cabins, founder cabins. Founder cabins are for groups. Log cabins are bare bone cabins with bunk beds. Competitor housing is for individual competitors: a single bedroom with a shared kitchen and living area. There is no food at the Whittington center, you will be responsible for purchasing and cooking your own food, except for Saturday and Sunday lunch.
