NRA casification cards

Post by Jerry G » Mon Jul 01, 2019 4:17 pm

WTF is going on with the NRA? I got my SB classifications a couple months ago and now I get a new one for my hunter rifle but they reclassified me down. Do they have clue what is going on?

Jerry, this is only a guess.
NRA has no mechanism in place to know that you already had a classification in that discipline.
You shot a match where the scores were reported correctly and they sent you a classification card based on those scores like you had never shot before.
Scores which were in a lower classification that the class you are really in.
Julie and I just ignore those incorrect cards when they come in.

Jerry, my original hunter rifle card was incorrect and it took a few emails to include one from Lijaboy to get it corrected.

My question is, “did they reclassify you down on the NRA competition portal?”

I wouldn't ignore it. I suggest contacting the NRA in case your real classification got replaced in their "database".

When the boy cries wolf so many times, he is ignored. Same with cards.
The folks running matches find out which classifications you are in when you fill out the entry forms.

It use to take an act of congress to lower your classification.

I still have three that were down classified from the get go. Made three attempts to get them corrected. I no longer care. I don't shoot national matches so what difference does it make. At local matches I just signup in my correct class.

I asked NRA’s Competitions if they received my scores for June matches as they are not on the new Portal system.
Reply was I am currently at Nationals Atterbury and won’t get to recording June scores till September 3.
This is really working good.At least it’s free this year.

Most ranges in the western US know me and what my classification is. Besides I have not been to a match that has ask for my card.

Computer technology revolutionized medical imaging and patient record keeping in ways that are too complex to explain here. Success with computers depends on the skill level of the software designer and the skill level of the person using that software. Garbage in and you get garbage out. Genius in and you get genius out. Other sports sanctioning bodies had better systems in the 1990's.

So it appears that all the bull about sending in your old scores to develop a data base just went pffft? Plus there's supposed to be an real time reporting portal whereby the match director gets a double secret access code......but they ain't got that far. Can't they find a 13 year old to help them out? :D

Jerry G, I want to make sure you know that the "boy who cried wolf" is not the shooters with messed up classifications. The complaints we shooters have are legitimate complaints not just whining.
