The NRA cordially thanks Kimber for their generous support as Title Sponsor for this year’s championship.

Our 2018 Silver Sponsors include Armalite, Berger Bullets, Bushnell, Global Ordnance, I.O.

The 2018 Bronze Sponsors include AWC Silencers, U.S. Border Patrol, Canik, Century Arms, Eley, Henry Repeating Arms, Metalform Magazines, Nexus Ammunition, Nine Line Apparel, Persona Medical, Vortex Optics, and Vudoo Gunworks.

Additional product support is provided by Blackhawk!, Crazy Quail Target Systems, Federal Premium Ammunition, OTIS Technology, Present Arms, Trijicon, and White Flyer Targets.

The sold-out 2018 NRA World Shooting Championship Presented by Kimber gathers the top shooters in the world to compete in virtually every type of major firearms shooting sport discipline, including pistol, rifle, shotgun and combined firearm sports. One competitor will be crowned the undisputed World Shooting Champion after navigating the 12 challenging stages. Additionally, participants will be able to compete in five exciting side matches for additional chances to earn prizes from supporting sponsors. 

Participants will compete in one of two divisions, professional and amateur, using provided firearms, equipment and ammunition. More than $250,000 in cash and prizes are on the line in the competition, with first through third overall winners as well as the High Lady and High Amateur Junior winners receiving cash prizes, in addition to pro and amateur prize tables.
