Rimfire Silhouette


A shooter only needs a 22 rifle and ammo in order to compete.

We shoot four different size targets at four different distances. 

We have three classes for shooters of different skill levels, plus high over all, lady, and junior ribbons.

Shooters may compete in both magnified and non magnified classes.

New to a rimfire silhouette event? We will go out of our way to help you. Bring out your .22LR for a fun morning match. 

Location: covered small bore range at the west side of Regional Shooting Facility located at 21555 Pyramid Way.
