This year, the 28th French National Silhouette Championships were held in Volmerange les Mines, a small city of the north of France. It is located 15 km south of the city of Luxemburg. The shooting range, named Euro stand www.eurostand- lorraine.fr, is the biggest of the country. It welcomes shooters from France, of course, but also from Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland.

The competition took place from August 3rd to August 8th , 2009. About 180 shooters attended these championships. All IMSSU events were shot excepted the Big Bore Rifle. There is no 500 meters range.

Silhouettes were painted in white. It is the best color against the background of the range. But contrast is not always good, depending of the position of the sun. It is a difficult range. Not many 40's were shot.
