    Kettlefoot Gun Club, Bristol VA, will be hosting the Auto Benchrest Association, ABRA, National Tournament Labor Day weekend. A National Tournament Champion will be crowned for both adults and juniors in the unlimited and factory classes. ABRA’s goal is to make this one of the major 22LR bench rest events of the year with cash, minimum of $2000 to be paid out, prizes and a special Belt Buckle being design for the National Tournament winners. ABRA is diligently working with vendors to ensure that many prizes are available so no matter how well you shoot you still have a chance of taking home not only memories of a great time but merchandise too.

    This is a great opportunity for those 22LR Semiauto rifle owners to give benchrest shooting a try, met some of the current top shooters in the ABRA ranks and learn how exciting and fun the sport can be.

    Kettlefoot ABRA will be Hosting the VA State Tournament the same weekend with the schedule as follows.
    Friday, August 31, 2018 - 12:00 PM - PRACTICE
    Friday, August 31, 2018 - 6:00 PM - 3 Card two person Team Money Match - Entrée Fee $30

    Get those 22LR semiauto's out of the closet and make it to Kettlefoot for the Labor Day National Tournament. Great prizes to be given away and a lot of cash to be awarded.
