Target Standards Update


Due to the large response from NSSA members across the country and within all concurrents and open classes, the NSSA Executive Committee has reconsidered the recent changes to target standards. After soliciting input from the membership, the Executive Committee has reviewed the response from the membership to their Directors, as reported by their Zone Committeemen on the EC.

The Executive Committeemen reported a slight preference among the Directors canvassed for the 1000-target singles event standards. After thoughtful consideration, the Executive Committee has revised the 2012 NSSA Target Standards as follows:

    Open Teams – 1000 in each of the four guns, with Doubles remaining at 500
    Concurrents – Remain the same as previous levels, except for the reduction of 12 gauge to 800 targets to match the other single guns. Doubles remain at 500, and Sub-Junior, Senior Veteran and Super Veteran remain at previous levels.

2012 NSSA Target Standards

The NSSA Target Standards program serves two purposes. The association recognizes those shooters who register a minimum number of targets for the year, awarding a “Target Standards” pin to each member who reaches that milestone. Secondly, if you are competing for the All-American Team, High Average Leader honors, or Honor Squad, you must shoot the minimums set in the Target Standards.

NSSA Headquarters will be sending out reminders of target standards throughout the season.

The Executive Committee will be considering a ballot vote at the annual director’s meeting in October to address target standards for future shooting seasons as we move forward.
