Outdoor Range
Will Close For The Season
Saturday, September 30!

You still have time to get your deer gun sighted in, or practice for rabbit and squirrel hunting!

.22 Silhouette Match
Sunday, September 17, 1 pm

This is a fun event for anybody with a .22 rifle.
It's also a great tune-up for small game hunting season!

You will fire a total of 40 rounds - 10 shots from four different distances, at steel animal cutout targets. Chickens are at 40 meters, pigs are at 60 meters, turkeys are at 77 meters and rams are at 100 meters.
All shots are fired from standing, unsupported position.  You are scored on the number of targets that you knock down.

This match is open to EVERYONE with a .22 rimfire rifle firing normal short, long or long rifle ammunition.
No "hyper velocity" ammo is permitted.
Slings are permitted. No special clothing or equipment required, nor permitted.
Rifles are expected to be of a "hunting configuration" weighing less than 9 pounds.
Any sights, including scopes, are permitted.
You can also have someone present with a spotting scope to assist shot correction.

Bring a friend. Bring your kids or grandkids. This is a "low pressure" match and the pace is leisurely. 
It's a great lesson in the trajectory arc of .22 rimfire ballistics. Get your rifle sighted in, then study how much "hold over" you need to hit at differing ranges. 
Eye and ear protection required for all shooters and all spectators. 

$5 entry fee.   Questions?  Contact Pat Storr - pstorr@ncn.net.
