Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC) cadets from across the country were in Anniston, Alabama last month to compete in the National JRTOC Championships. Getting to the event is an impressive feat itself with over 7,300 cadets competing nationally in regional Civilian Marksmanship Program events. The top 890 moved on to their branch’s Service Competition and the top 212 from that event competed at the National Championship.
The Crosman Challenger has become the rifle of choice for Sporter Class shooters for its two-stage adjustable trigger, three-position stock, ambidextrous bolt handle and Lothar Walther barrel. Winners are determined based on aggregate scores over two days of shooting.
Shooting the Crosman Challenger, sixteen year old Hunter Cushman won the Sporter Division with an aggregate score of 1222.8. During his title run Cushman, of King George High School in King George, Virginia, broke three new Navy JROTC national records to include the kneeling record with a score of 193-7.
Crosman congratulates all the participants for their achievements in shooting. If you are an instructor or operate a shooting program and would like to learn more about the Crosman Challenger Sporter air rifle, please contact Mark DeBoard at 800-7AIRGUN.
