Retired National Records
To be recognized as a national record, the score must be fired in a USA Shooting sanctioned event or ISSF event. The competition must have been conducted on facilities that meet all technical requirements for distances, timing, etc. The shooter who fired the score must be a current USAS member and have used only equipment that completely fulfills all requirements for that event as per General Technical Rules. If equipment control was not conducted at the beginning of the competition, the competition director may conduct a special equipment control to certify that the shooter's equipment fulfilled these conditions.
•All 10m and 50m events- Individual records can only be set in events where a minimum of five competitors shot.
•All 25m and shotgun events- Individual records can only be set in events where a minimum of four competitors shot.
•International Competition- National records will be recognized if the score is fired in an international competition supervised by the ISSF. The competitor must have been a member of the USA Shooting sponsored team for that activity.
•We require documentation of the record. Along with your application you must also provide your targets, tape, or scoresheets for verification.

National records will be recognized if the score fired is an international competition supervised by the ISSF. The competitor must have been a member of the USA Shooting sponsored team for that activity.
When a national record is equaled or exceeded, the organizing committee must report this on a national record application form provided by USA Shooting. The competition director and jury chairman must certify that the requirements for national records were fully met by each shooter who established a record score. When organizing committees fail to report national records, shooters who fire possible scores may send in a national record application to USA Shooting to have their record recognized. An official results list for the competition should be sent in with the application.
No national record is official until recognized by USA Shooting and a national record certificate is issued. USA Shooting will maintain national records list that will be posted on the official USA Shooting web site.
