Nordic Veteran Championship Pistol Shooting 2013

The Championship

The Nordic Veteran Championship in Pistol Shooting has a history that started in 2000. First competition was held in Keuruu, Finland. The event is held on a yearly basis and is divided between Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden. This year, 2013, in Sweden. We are also happy to welcome veteran shooters from Great Britain and Iceland to take part in the chapionships.

 

Shooters participating in The Championship find joy in travelling, meeting with old shooting friends from way back or the year before. Even if shooting is the common interest, maybe the competition itself is of secondary importance. You compete within your own age category and the major component is maybe yourself. In the championship there are four categories, V45, V55, V65 and V70. The V70 is added as a category to encourage as many as possible of the older shooters to participate.

The Championship covers the same event as in any other Pistol Shooting Competition apart from the Rapid Fire Pistol.
