There were 500 registered competitors for the NRA National Pistol Championships (July 9-13) and over 540 registered competitors for the CMP National Trophy Pistol Matches (July 14-15).

In addition, USARCMP members assisted with conducting the Small Arms Firing School.

All U.S. citizens and service members can attend these annual events.
