Default Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program


06/05 - UPDATE: We received confirmation today from the NRA Program Coordinator, and all of the qualifications must be done in the same caliber (.22lr, 9mm, .40, .45, ...), and action (revolver, auto loader, ...) So if you start with .22lr Derringer, you need to finish it with .22lr Derringer or another .22lr with the same action. However, if you have a malfunction we can switch guns as long as its the same caliber.

07/26 - Update: A link to the printer template for the certificates has been added to the bottom of this post.

Whether you just purchased your first pistol, or you're a seasoned shooter, the Winchester/NRA Marksman Qualification has something for everyone. The NRA Basic Pistol & Defensive Pistol Qualification Courses provide the perfect self-paced shooting activity to help develop your skills and reward your achievements. You can shoot on your own or at the Monthly Chapter Shooting events you'll be able to purchase target qualification packages which will provide you with all of the targets required to earn a particular qualification plus a couple of extras, and the corresponding certificate packages once you've earned rank.

In summary, participants will be able to earn patches, rockers, pins, and certificates of achievement for completing established set courses of fire for a given discipline. You'll be able to work your way up from Marksman to Expert, and even nationally recognized achievement of Distinguished Expert. So come one, come all, challenge your friends, family, enemies, and fellow Calgunners and see what it who has got what it takes to be the best.
