In this year’s Ironman 2022 pre-season shoot, we welcomed a record 33 teams and busted 53,500 targets. Over the two-day competition, several athletes shot their new personal best and two competitors shot perfect 100s…despite a very windy Sunday.

While the event is largely attended by returning competitors, the Federation was also excited to see a few rookies on the scene–we added Rookie and Collegiate categories to Ironman this year–with more joining this season!
It was a great weekend at the Nashville Gun Club reconnecting friends and competitors after last year’s state championships and generating excitement for the season to come.
