Long Range Silhouette, Rimfire


Long range silhouette is fired on metallic, animal-shaped targets at four distances. The objective is to knock down the targets in sequence. One point is awarded for each knock-down. A knock-down out of sequence or when you manage to rotate a turkey is counted as a miss.

This is known as a fun match. We want you to come out with whatever 22 rifle you already have, shoot and above all, enjoy yourself. Prizes are limited to bragging rights. It is quite a challenge to shoot a 22 at over 200 yards and hit something. Mother Nature can easily blow your bullet off course, but she can’t dampen our fun - we shoot from a covered firing line.
