NO FORMAL SHOOTING EXPERIENCE REQUIRED - The purpose is to introduce new shooters to .22 cal pistol shooting and to help everyone improve their shooting skills. Dates: Starting in April, matches will be held on the 3rd Thurs during the DST summer. Starting time will be flexible to accommodate late arrivals. The matches will be held on the 25 yd pistol range using any .22 caliber pistol or revolver. All firing will be governed by NRA rules, scoring will be after each 10 shot string.
Each Shooting event the following course of fire will be used:
Slow Fire: 30 shots in 3 strings of 10 shots each, each string fired in 10 min.
Timed Fire: 30 shots in 6 strings of 5 shots each, each string fired in 20 sec.
Rapid Fire: 30 shots in 6 strings of 5 shots each, each string fired in 10 sec.
: $3.00 for each match. Scores will be sent to the NRA for classification for an additional $7.00 if desired. (NRA membership may be required for this optional service) The NRA will grant an Outdoor Pistol Classification if 360 recorded shots are fired and reported. If a shooter requests scores to be sent to the NRA, all shots fired will be reported.
: This is a non-classified match. NRA classifications are not required and will not be considered. However, a classification will be determined for each shooter based on the first 360 shots fired in this league. This classification will only be used for this one league and should not be considered an official NRA classification.
Shooters will be grouped by classification determined by the first 360 shots fired in this league. Depending on the number of shooters in each classification, Place Ribbons or Trophies will be awarded at the end of the summer.
