New matches coming in 2015!

Beginning in March 2015, on the last Saturday of each month, BRRC will be holding NSSF Rimfire Challenge matches @ 2:00 P.M. There are 4 shoots scheduled at this time, running through the end of June. If participation and interest is high enough to justify holding more they will be a regularly held event through the end of October.


These matches will involve firing .22LR handguns and rifles at steel targets ranging from 7 to 35 yards. The smallest target will be 8” round plates and the largest will be 18” x 24” rectangles. The longest distance for handguns will be 20 yards and the longest for rifles will be 35 yards. Shooters will fire at between 3 and 5 steel targets on each stage with a limit of 11 rounds for each string. This will be repeated for a total of 5 strings and the slowest time will be thrown out. The remaining time total will be your score. We anticipate setting up between 4 and 6 stages at each event.


Ammunition will be available for purchase at each event at reasonable prices. Only enough to shoot the match will be sold to each shooter. Match fees will be $5.00 per shooter. Guns will be divided into categories as follows:

Open - Any firearm (pistol or revolver in handgun class) with scopes, optical sights, light gathering scopes, battery powered optics, lasers, compensator or muzzle brake.

Limited - Guns with iron sights. Adjustable sights, fiber optics are allowed but no electronic sights. No compensators, muzzle brakes or barrel weights.

Complete rules can be found here: http://nssf.org/rimfire/rules.cfm


These are designed to be “family friendly events”, meaning that Junior shooters and Lady shooters are most welcome! Target set ups are designed by the “90-90-90” rule, meaning that 90% of the shooters should be able to hit 90% of the targets 90% of the time.


Pre-registration will not be required unless and until we reach range capacity. If that occurs, we will set up a pre-registration section here on our web site.
