The world of Competitive Shooting lost a legend on the evening of December 14, 2017.  Lones W. Wigger, the most decorated shooter in the world, died at his home from cancer complications.  He was the winner of two Gold and one Silver Olympic Medals, 111 International Medals, and set 29 world records in rifle shooting. 

Competitive Shooting will greatly miss him!

 U.S National Rifle Team Tryout









On July 15th & 16th, Gopher Rifle and Revolver Club in Harris, MN hosted a greatly anticipated US National Rifle Team Tryout. The USNRT is the developmental program for the US Palma Team, which represents the USA at the World Long Range Championship matches held every 4 years... [read more]















You are cordially invited to join the Palma Alliance. Founded in 2017, we are a coalition of prone shooters who have banded together to make prone shooting great again. The Alliance is made up of brave men and women who have sworn a solemn blood oath to shoot only Palma rifles with iron sights and 155-grain bullets (sub-82gr bullets for .223) for Long Range and Mid Range Prone matches – the way God intended it. As the 2019 World Long Range Championship approaches, we feel that this strategy will help prepare prone shooters for the unique challenges associated with shooting this platform in international competition.

Membership in this prestigious club is free, and all members will receive limited edition commemorative “PALMA ALLIANCE” stickers to proudly display on their rifles. In addition to the free sticker, all member names will be forever etched in granite on the hallowed walls of Valhalla. The names of these heroes will ring out through all eternity.

Do you have what it takes?
