Revolutionary New Competition - American Marksman/Outdoor Channel
#1
American Marksman is a new, nationwide amateur shooting competition! It is being owned and produced 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.com and 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 Mid-Atlantic 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)
Military/LEO

We do have ranges participating in Palmerton, Easton and the Greater Pittsburgh and Philadelphia areas.

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.

I posted a link to this a few weeks back myself. Considering entering. My question is if you make regional or national would I have to foot the bill for hotels and transportation?

Yes, all participants will have to get to regionals and nationals on their own. We will have discounted hotel rooms available for all participants. There will be up to 1000 participants at each regional.
