RIMFIRE MATCH



Description

The Rimfire Match is patterned after the "Rimfire Challenge" as regulated by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. See www.nssf.org/rimfire for a complete description. Metal targets are used exclusively to simplify the scoring of the match. In alternate months the match may be modified to include movement and alternative shooting problems using both rifle and pistol in rimfire caliber.

Objectives

To provide a recreational shooting venue for rimfire handguns and rifles that is friendly to advanced beginner and intermediate level shooters. To create a safe, supervised environment. To help shooters improve target acquisition and engagement while under time constraints.

Procedures

Stages are shot under the supervision of a Range Safety Officer. A maximum of 10 rounds are loaded to engage the target arrays. The number of targets in each array may vary.
The shooter addresses the targets from the low-ready position or as specified in the stage description. At the start signal, the shooter engages all targets with one hit and shoots the stop plate last, if a stop plate is designated.
A timer is used to record the overall time used by the shooter to address the target string. After reloading, the string is repeated four more times with the times recorded for each string. The score is the total time taken, less the slowest string, plus penalty points, if any.
Penalty points in the form of additional time are added for targets missed or for procedural errors.
Participants have the choice of including or excluding their scores from the tabulation prepared after the conclusion of the match. Scores are posted to the Club website after the match has concluded.

When

Second Sunday of most months (not held when a Women On Target Clinic is scheduled) (see the Club Activity Calendar for specific dates) with setup starting at 8:00 a.m., a shooter safety meeting at 8:50 a.m. and shooting commencing at 9:00 a.m. You must be present at the shooters meeting to participate.

Who

Members of the Lemon Grove Rod & Gun Club and non-members are invited.

Where

At the shooting facility in Alpine located on Sequan Truck Trail owned and operated by the Lemon Grove Rod & Gun Club

What to bring

Any handgun and/or rifle with any sight configuration, gun bag or case for storage between stages, 300-500 rounds of .22 ammunition, 5 speed loaders or magazines, eye protection (shooting glasses), hearing protection and a desire to have some fun.
Four Divisions are used for scoring purposes: Open, Limited, Open (mechanically operated) and Limited (mechanically operated). These four Divisions attempt to place similar firearms together for scoring purposes. Mechanically operated firearms include revolvers and lever, pump, and bolt action rifles.

Fee

Club members shoot free and guests pay $10 to help defray the cost of paint, score sheets used and wear and tear on the targets. As a non-monetary fee, all participants are expected to help in the conduct of the event by helping with setup, tear-down, range safety officer duties and score keeping.

Range Rules

A number of "common sense" range rules are used for the safety of all participants:

  • Firearms are handled only at the stage start position under the supervision of a Range Safety Officer. Otherwise, all firearms shall be bagged or in a case until ready for use.
  • The range is a COLD RANGE, which means that all firearms are in the unloaded condition except while being used to engage the targets.
  • While engaging the targets, shooters must observe the "180 Rule" which means that loaded firearms must be pointed down range at all times.

  • Other Information

    Targets consist of metal targets only. Targets are scored as a hit or a miss.
    Multiple shots may be taken at each target until hit up to a maximum of 10 shots total.
    The Range Safety Officer can answer any questions participants have about the rules.
