We will be introducing IR50/50 rimfire (.22 only) matches at our club again this summer, starting this Thursday, 5/21 with registration beginning at 5 pm. Shooting starts promptly at 6 pm. The shoots will continue every other Thursday into September. Keep an eye on our club's calendar at www.brfga.com
for any additional shoots that may be held.
IR50 is a nationwide (mostly East Coast), sanctioned rimfire benchrest shooting organization. There are several types of matches that we can do, but in our case I've chosen the Unlimited Class due to some of the restrictions in the other classes.I want all those interested to be able to shoot.
We will be shooting at 50 yards off the bench, on either the 50- or 100-yard rifle ranges, depending on the number of competitors at each match. In the Unlimited Class shooters will have 20 minutes to complete the 25-shot targets. There are three targets per match. There are also sighter bulls on the target, which shooters can use to get dialed in, or practice, throughout the target.
Unlimited is just that. Any weight rifle, any power scoped (recommended) rifle, and also any type of bench rest such as blocks, sandbags, mechanical, etc. The match fee is $10 per shooter for the three targets. Half goes to IR50, the other to the club.
At these matches you will see some custom rifles and equipment at times, but I do not want that to discourage anyone who wishes to shoot. Bring yours or grampa's 'ol 22 out and get the most out of it you can. Try and improve each time, and consider possibly taking it to some other level. You will get out of it what you put into it, trust me.
Hope to see you there!
