The 2019 IPSC Rifle World Shoot II was held in Karlskoga, Sweden between 3 and 10 August.[1] The match consisted of 30 stages over six days, and over 650 competitors[2][3] Jarkko Laukia from Finland took gold in the Open division, which was the largest division of the match.

History[edit]

Originally, the 2018 IPSC European Rifle Championship was to be held in Karlskoga in the summer of 2018, but had to be postponed to 2019 due to the 2018 Sweden wildfires.[4][5][6] After an application to the international association for practical shooting, the Match Category was upgraded to a World Championship, making the match one of the largest shooting competitions ever held in Sweden.[7][8] The match had a capacity of approximately 750 competitors.[9]

Karlskoga is known for being the home town of Nobel Price founder Alfred Nobel. The venue of the match, Villingsberg's shooting range (Villingsbergs skjutfält), is owned by the Swedish Armed Forces, and the yearly Swedish Defence Forces' Practical Rifle Championship was also held in conjunction with the World Championship.[8]

The match had stable weather conditions.
