    I was wondering since there were lots of marksmen on here what is your NRA Pistol or Rifle Competition Ranking? Here they are as a reference.

    High Master ....................97.00 and above

    Master ............................95.00 to 96.99

    Expert ............................ 90.00 to 94.99

    Sharpshooter .................. 85.00 to 89.99

    Marksman ....................... Below 85.00

    Here is the Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program Ranks its a big different but in a way similar... I am currently a Pro Marksman and making my way up.

    Pro Marksman

    Marksman

    Marksman 1st Class

    Sharpshooter

    Expert

    Distinguished Expert

    Your classification scores are wrong, at least for conventional pistol:

    High Master ....................97.00 and above
    Master ............................95.00 to 96.99
    Expert ............................ 90.00 to 94.99
    Sharpshooter .................. 85.00 to 89.99
    Marksman ....................... Below 85.00

    I hold an Expert classification.

    Seems like us ordinary folks seldom post in these, but I'll lower the average a little:

    NRA F-T/R: Sharpshooter
    NRA BPCR MS: Class AA
    ATA Trap: B class
    IDPA CDP & ESP: Expert
    IDPA SSP & SSR: Sharpshooter

    How do you qualify for such things? Is it by winning a competition, or is it based on your high score at a ranked event?

    The top list is done at local matches that are scored and NRA approved. The scores get sent to the NRA and you get your card. As you improve you Classification will be moved to the next one. You don't go back down unless you ask for a lifetime change; this is mostly done by guys that are much older in age and can't compete like they used to when they were younger.

    The lower list is something that you can do on your own. If you were interested in Bullseye Conventional Shooting go to page 8 and follow the scores
    http://www.nrahq.org/education/training/marksmanship/qualbook.pdf#page=8

    To become Distinguished in Pistol or Rifle this is from the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) One uses a Service Pistol (1911 or the Beretta 9mm) or the M16/AR15 or Garand. One uses FMJ and Iron sights only. If you are in the top 10% of a match you will get a "Leg" up to 10pts. Once you have received 30 points you become Distinguished. To receive one of your legs, however, you need to go to Camp Perry and be in the top 10% there, shooting against the US Marines and the US Army, as well as everyone else. A nice thing, though is that guys and gals going for their Badge are only competing against those that haven't gotten theirs yet either. That way you only compete to be in the top 10% of non-Distinguished, to keep fresh faces coming in.

    The classifications for high power rifle listed above are not current:

    INDIVIDUAL & LONG RANGE
    High Master . . . . 97.00 and above
    Master . . . . . . . 94.00 to 96.99
    Expert . . . . . . . . 89.00 to 93.99
    Sharpshooter . . . 84.00 to 88.99
    Marksman . . . . . Below 84.00

    INDIVIDUAL MID-RANGE PRONE
    High Master . . . . 98.50 and above
    Master . . . . . . . 97.00 - 98.49
    Expert . . . . . . . 94.50 - 96.99
    Sharpshooter . . 92.00 - 94.49
    Marksman . . . . Below 92.00

    The bar has been raised on the Mid Range Prone classifications. My classes are:

    NRA High Power Rifle- High Master
    NRA Mid Range Prone- High Master
    NRA Long Range Prone- High Master
    Extinguished Rifleman

    Good luck nbkky1 on getting the points next week.

    I don't know what those numbers mean in the first post.

    In bullseye pistol shooting, I qualified as "Expert" with a .22 a few years ago and I'm up to "Sharpshooter Bar 8" now with a .38 Special service revolver. I'll probably get to bar 9 eventually with the .38, but I doubt I'll ever get to expert with it, and I'm maxed out already with the .22 (will never get D.E.)

    I'm a lousy shot with a rifle. That's probably what I need to work on the most this summer.

    Those numbers in the first post, and in Howard Roark's, refer to the percent.

    To achieve your first Classification for Bullseye, for example, which is done in 90 shots (for a possible 900 points for those 90 shots) for each stage.

    90 shots for the .22, 90 shots for any center fire .32 caliber or larger (mostly shot by 1911 .45), and 90 shots for the 45.

    Once you have shot 360 shots, add up your score, and divide by 3600. That will give you a percentage, like 89.2, a Sharpshooter, very close to becoming an Expert.

    To go up on Classification, you need to put together a string of 360 shots (4x90) that will add up to, for example 91 percent. Then you would receive your Expert Classification!

    (or there are some leagues that shoot only .22 Bullseye. Saves costs on ammo and extra guns, but the same rules still apply)

    you do not have to get points at the nationals to become distinguised. that rule went away along time ago.

    You do need 30 points as mentioned and one hard leg which is a 8 or 10 point leg. all legs given at perry in the eic match are 10 point legs.

    the points are given out as follows: bronze =6 points, silver =8 points, gold =10 points.

    it is posible to earn 4 points at perry in the m16 and m9 match for anyone who has never won points before.

    you can only as a non distinguished shooter participate in ONLY 3 EIC matches per calender year with a 4th allowed only if it is shot at the national matches.

    For some folks they find it easier to get points at perry with so many shooters as more points are given out because of that.

    So think of it this way only a few folks get their 30 points in one calender year.

    good luck!! my number is 1762 and if you get your final points and go to perry to be awarded on stage I will be one of the ones standing up cheering.

    I think the competition I'm on is called "National Match". (maybe it's NRA/Winchester instead of NRA) Each relay is 30 shots; 10 slow fire, 10 timed fire, and 10 rapid fire, for a total possible 300 points. I'm doing good to get 250 points, but I've got 250 enough times to get my expert ranking with a .22. (I really don't remember the exact cutoffs) I think you need 5 sets of targets with a score of 275 to get D.E., and I don't have any quite that high yet but I've gotten close a few times.

    I fired for the first time a CMP match last month so I do not have enough rounds fired to get a classification yrt but shot 487/500 I guess that will put me into the High Master class with 1 or 2 more matches
