NRA Silhouette National Championships
NRA has two basic Silhouette programs which stem directly from the original High Power version of Siluetas Metalicas. These are: (1) Pistol Silhouette, which consists of a Long Range version, fired from 50 to 200 meters on the standard High Power targets; and Hunter's Pistol, which is fired from 25 meters to 100 meters on targets one-half the size of standard targets; and, (2) Rifle Silhouette, which is the original Siluetas Metalicas High Power rifle game; and the Smallbore Rifle Silhouette program, using rifles chambered for .22 caliber rim fire short, long or long rifle cartridges only, and fired at one-fifth scale targets at one-fifth scale distances from 40 meters to 100 meters.

NRA Black Powder Target Rifle National Championships
No other match has origins so meaningful to the National Rifle Association of America, like the Black Powder Target Rifle National Championship does. The great prestige and storied lineage of this Championship truly make it one of the NRA's most valuable commodities. With the Castle Trophy dating back to 1871, the longevity of this particular Championship is most definitely a testament to NRA Competitive Shooting Sports as well as the 2nd Amendment. Competing in this National Championship puts a whole new perspective in becoming an actual part of history.
