    American Marksman is a new, nationwide amateur shooting competition! It is owned and operated by The Outdoor Channel and will eventually lead into a TV show. The winner receives a grand prize of $50,000.

    The way this works is you register at AmMarksman.comand participate at our local qualifying ranges anywhere between March 1st and May 31st. To qualify you will first compete in a modified postal match. After your course of fire is complete, you will be able to see where you rank instantly in your division and in your region. At the local level a shooter will choose either .22 pistol, rifle, or both and will get 2 chances at the course of fire per each firearm selected. For one firearm its 20$ and for both it is only $35!

    If you do well enough and progress into the Northwest regional competition you will get to shoot multiple different firearms and calibers, all of which WE will provide both the firearms and ammunition!

    One of the major draws of this competition is that it is amateur only. No one who has ever been paid, sponsored, or finished in the top 10% in a national championship is eligible to participate. We know there are GREAT shooters all across America! However, they may not competitively shoot because they are taking care of kids, going to school, working full time, or all the above.

    We have 4 divisions:
    Men's open (17+)
    Women's open (17+)
    Youth (12-16)

    We do have ranges participating all across the Northwest in most major areas. Burlington, Bellevue, Puyallup, Vancouver, Portland, Bend, Coeur d'Alene, and many more!

    Our goal here at American Marksman is to introduce everyone to the joy of competition shooting. We've designed this to be a low barrier of entry which is both fun and challenging. Competition shooting is incredibly fun, but can be rather daunting or expensive to enter. If we can get more people involved in the sports we love and the life style we all immerse ourselves in, we all win!

    Do any of you think you have what it takes to be the FIRST American Marksman?

    I would be happy to answer any questions that you might have.

    Clearconsciene - This competition is amateur based and if you go to our website you can see some of the other scores that are up on the leader board! This competition should be very attainable as rifle is shot at 30 feet and pistol is shot at 20 feet!
