Competitive Shooting Programs

CRPA has been hosting and sponsoring recreational and competitive matches for decades across all of California. These events provide a forum to teach members and the public about firearms, gun law politics, and how they can have fun and get more engaged in the shooting sports. Currently the most common of matches CRPA sponsors are several rifle silhouette state championships. Competitive shooting has been described as the one sport where the objective is to remain as still as possible. It’s also said that shooting is mostly a mental game. It is one of the few sports where women and juniors compete with men on a truly equal basis. As women shooters becoming more engaged in the sport are on the rise, they help bred competition for the shooting sports. CRPA celebrates the increase of competitors each year getting out to shoot and compete and look forward to providing more opportunities and programs for competitors.

Some of the sponsored shooting competitions by CRPA include but are not limited to:

  • Smallbore
  • High Power
  • Black Powder Cartridge Rifle
  • Smallbore Cowboy Lever Action Rifle
  • Pistol Cartridge Cowboy Lever Action Rifle
  • Rifle Cowboy Lever Action Rifle
