Title: Calling all NRA high power shooters
Post by: thatmarine on July 18, 2021, 06:21:39 AM
BLUF: Can someone help me understand how the NRA awards points towards the distinguished shooting badges? Bonus points if you can explain how the USMC distinguished shooting badges play into these points? I know it has something to do with the national level matches, but are their qualifiers for these matches? Can you earn points off the qualifiers?

I have googled for hours and i can't find a straight answer to the question.

Thanks.

Don’t feel alone. I shoot F class and there are very few, if any, EIC leg matches available in my area. Easier if you are a sling shooter. I would ask the same question on AccurateShooter and I think you will get solid answers from the many DR that frequent the site.

Do you know how the scoring goes though?

Thanks Robin!

OK Josh, you had me interested again in obtaining a Distinguished Rifleman badge.  I did some online searching and noted on the NRA competitors section that the NRA instituted a DR program for High Power Rifle in 2017; I thought I still had to shoot CMP EIC matches to qualify.  I was wrong.  Attached is the link to the page on the NRA site:  https://competitions.nra.org/results-and-records/distinguished-program/

They refer to pages 83-84 in the NRA HP rulebook but, in true NRA confusing fashion, it is actually pages 90-91.  In summary 'steps' are awarded for finishing in the top 10% of the qualifying tournaments which are NRA registered state, regional, and national championships.  Only 2 steps can be earned in a given year and one of the 4 steps required for the award must be at a NRA national championship.
