American Marksman

A revolutionary new competition

This is What You Dream About at the Range.

This is different from anything you've ever seen before. American Marksman is your chance to compete against amateur shooters. There are no pros here, just everyday target shooters like you. Ever thought that entering a match was too intimidating, too expensive, or just downright unwinnable? Not anymore. At only $20 to try your hand at the local qualifying level, American Marksman is just what you've been waiting for.

You will compete to advance through 3 levels: local qualifying, regional championships and, finally, the national championship. Qualifiers advance, the rest go home. The best of the best in the amateur ranks will meet in a ridiculously cool national championship with the TV cameras rolling.

What makes this really unique is that we are going to make a television show out of all this! So let's review shall we? You can compete against other amateur shooters in a relaxed environment for only 20 bucks, get the chance to advance along to the next stage in the competition, and you might end up on TV!

Intrigued? You should be.

The Categories.

American Marksman offers four categories of competition: Men's Open, Women's Open, Junior (12-16) and Military/Law Enforcement. Not everyone gets lumped into the same category. Pick the category that fits you. At the end of the tour at the national championship, the best shooters from each of the categories will be pitted against each other to chase the ultimate crown. That's right... the American Marksman winner can come from any of the categories. What can I win, you might ask? Great question. Keep reading to find out.

What is at Stake?

You mean aside from the bragging rights and the eternal glory of the being the very first American Marksman? The answer is plenty! The person that stands alone at the national championship as the American Marksman will win a sweet prize package including cold hard cash as well as some awesome gear. The top finishers in each of the other three categories will also receive prize packages and will be named as National Champions.

Oh yeah, and you might just end up on TV! We will film at various locations during the local and regional championship rounds. The national championship will receive heavy TV coverage as well. Are you ready for your close-up? We want to make you a star!
