Buying both a rifle case and a shooting mat can often cost upwards of $300-$400. Transporting multiple accessories can also be very cumbersome, especially when you’re just going for an afternoon shoot or spending a day in the field. The NRA Combination Shooting Mat / Rifle Case is a great option if you’re looking for a convenient way to carry your essentials - better yet, for under $100!
When the NRA Store was looking for a better way to just lay around, they came upon a high density multi-functional rifle mat and case.

Port Clinton, Ohio - Palma differs from the regular Long Range course of fire in three ways; the number of shots, time and distance. Most of the NRA's Long Range matches are 20 shots at 1,000 yards in 30 minutes. In Palma, shooters have 22 minutes to fire 15 shots at 800, 900 and 1,000 yards (No, not 22 minutes to shoot all three relays. Twenty-two minutes per relay).

The Palma Match, 15 shots at 800, 900 and 1,000 yards, will be the deciding match for NRA's Long Range High Power Rifle Championships.
