The Illinois State Rifle Association Junior High Power Team Thanks Armalite for the generosity shown the team in support of our 2010 season.
ArmaLite is pleased to announce the great Camp Perry success of the Illinois Hard Dogs! The Hard Dogs are the junior high power rifle team of the Illinois State Rifle Association. The team is made up of young people ages 13 to 19 from around Illinois.
This 2010 Hard Dogs team had a strong showing at the CMP National Trophy Matches at Camp Perry. Hard Dogs finished as high as 8th place in the Junior Aggregate out of 204 competitors. One Hard Dog earned his first 10 leg points towards the Distinguished Rifleman’s Badge. Two of the Hard Dogs’ two-person teams received medals in the Freedom’s Fire Match. Our six-person infantry team was the second highest junior team and tenth overall in the National Trophy Infantry Team Match, beating some of the top teams from the US military.
Best of all, every one of the ten Hard Dogs that competed in the nationals wants to go back next year!

ArmaLite is a proud sponsor of the 2010 Hard Dogs. Our donation of an M-15 National Match rifle helped raise more than $10,000 in the Hard Dogs’ annual Camp Perry raffle. Several other firearms manufacturers, including Geneseo’s Springfield Armory, also made generous donations to the raffle. Raffle proceeds help pay for rifle maintenance, ammunition, entry fees and the cost of lodging at Camp Perry.
Go Hard Dogs!
