Why would a club pick one organization over the other to register with? Which one is more widely accepted?

As a shooter would you pick one organization or the other to go shoot at? Or are most shooters a member of both?

Any responses would be appreciated.

...........Reasons: 1/ It is the predominate organization here in N.E. PA

2/ With the $50/ yr dues I get the "Precision Shooting" magazine every month (about 100 pages of historical, and technical articles, and match reports...............once in a blue moon with MY name listed:)

3/ The members have a vote on how the org. is run. The annual meeting is held in Jan. ,here in PA, plus you can get your local shooters to petition for a change---provided enough signatures are provided

4/ I am a score shooter, the other org. doesn't have a score program

5/ their all such nice guy's that they honor NBRSA's card

6/ they also recognize 600 and 1000 yard disciplines ...which I am interested in-in the future

and...7/ it truly is international-- with clubs in several countries

It was a "geographical" thing, but now both organizations are pretty much spread throughout the US. Find out which sanctioned matches you want to shoot and join that org. I would like to clarify a few points below.

NBRSA membership also votes on agenda items at National matches. You can also speak with you regional director about your concerns.

NBRSA does not have "Varmint for score" classes, but Hunter Class and 600/1000 BR matches are shot for score.


5/ their all such nice guy's that they honor NBRSA's card

6/ they also recognize 600 and 1000 yard disciplines ...which I am interested in-in the future

NBRSA has 600/1000 yard formats/matches.


and...7/ it truly is international-- with clubs in several countries

I believe the NBRSA also has matches outside the US?

There are things I like about each organization, and things I'd like to see changed.... But in the end, I just like to shoot, and it really doesn't matter to me which set of rules we use.

Cheers,
