Welcome to
United States Air Rifle Benchrest

Air Rifle Benchrest continues to grow in the United States. Currently, eighteen sanctioned clubs throughout the United States offer competition. Please see the Clubs page to find one near you. If you are interested in sanctioning a club, please send an email to the USARB Board of Directors using the Contact page.

In the interest of continuing this growth, we updated this website to promote this sport throughout the United States and the world. Your input for changes and improvements to this site are always welcome.

2019 USARB National Championship Scores

Due to a computer crash, the data from the match was lost. However, the top ten scores for each discipline have been recreated and are now posted under “Championships”.

Record Scores Upgrade

In the interest of establishing a consistent standard and fair comparison, the Record Scores page has been updated to now list only those scores which have been formally verified. Older non-verified scores, without any prejudice respecting their accuracy, have been transferred to a Record Scores Archive page for preservation and viewing.

Glossary of Terms

A glossary of terms used in the air rifle benchers sport has been added to the Resources page. Please click on “Resources” in the index header.

Scoring Plug Program

USARB has initiated a program to distribute two custom scoring plugs free of charge to sanctioned clubs that request them. The intent is to make tools available that we believe will promote better scoring practices and reliable outcomes.

A $25.00 yearly, per club donation will be collected for sanctioning purposes. See “Affiliated Clubs” page for detailed mailing information, and individual club listings for sanctioning status. Funds will be used to cover both organizational expenses and discretionary items.
