Mowrer defends title in National Match air gun events

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.”

The Civilian Marksmanship Program created the .22 Rimfire EIC Pistol Match to its lineup of competitive events in 2015. The course of fire is a modified version of the National Match Course with elements of International pistol courses added in, requiring competitors to start in low ready prior to timed and rapid fire strings. “Leg” points are earned in this event in the same manner as other Excellence In Competition events.

Despite being only a year old, three members of the USARCMP have earned their Distinguished badges in this event.
