Niantic, Connecticut – The United States F-Class Rifle Team announces that Kalispel Case Line, a company owned and run by the Kalispel Tribe of Indians in Usk, Washington, is providing its world class rifle cases to each member of the national team to assist with the safe transportation of rifles to the 2009 World F-Class Long Range Rifle Championships.

In July 2009, 35 of America’s best F-Class shooters from across the United States will travel to England to face team competition at distances of 600 to 1000 yards in the third World F-Class Long Range Rifle Championships. The United States won the first world championships in 2002 held in Ottawa, followed by a second place finish in 2005 in South Africa.

F-Class is shot from the prone position at distances of 300 to 1,000 yards. Competitors may use almost any caliber rifle, a scope, and both front and rear rests. An ideal sport for both male and female competitive shooters, this shooting discipline is unique in the fact that anyone can excel in it, even with little experience.

In July 2009, the team will travel to Bisley Camp in England to compete in the World F-Class Championships. “Each team member is responsible for providing their own equipment,” said Robert Bock, United States F-Class Rifle Team captain. “The average cost per competitor is between five and seven thousand dollars. It brings us great peace of mind to have our rifles protected by Kalispel cases. We can’t thank Kalispel Case Line enough for its support of our team.”

“Team members invest a great deal of time, money and effort in their discipline,” said Al Hague, general manager for Kalispel Case Line. “It is our pleasure to support the national team and we look forward to them returning to the United States as World Champions.”
