CAMP PERRY – Sgt. Nick Mowrer of the U.S. Army Reserve saved his place as the overall competitor in the AiR-15 Challenge during the 2017 National Air Gun Matches.
Mowrer, 28, won the overall title in the event, which is held at the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center at Camp Perry.
Wanting to earn back-to-back wins, he admitted there was an added amount of difficulty to this year’s match.
“I felt a little more pressure than last year just because I really wanted to reach that goal,” he said. “But for the most part, I was pretty calm and relaxed in the beginning, and as things weren’t going the way I wanted them to go, it got a little more frustrating.”
He added, “But all in all, it was good. I just stuck to the fundamentals and kept bringing me back to it and execute good shots.”
