Rimfire Challenge Shooting Association

What is The Rimfire Challenge?

Taken from the RCSA rule book.

The RCSA Rimfire Challenge, formerly known as the NSSF Rimfire Challenge, introduces participants to the fun and excitement of competitive shooting in a safe, lowpressure, family-friendly format. All levels of target shooters—new, novice and experienced—are welcome to compete. Each will find a challenge appropriate to his or her level of marksmanship.  The Rimfire Challenge was developed with safety in mind. Shooters are required to compete using a rifle and handgun from any manufacturer in .22 Long Rifle caliber. The targets are steel plates that are set in a course of fire that is no less than 5 plates and no more than 7 plates. The course of fire is designed to be completed by even the most inexperienced shooter using one 10-round magazine without the need to reload “on the clock.” Steel plates were chosen as the targets because they are easy to buy or build, and because this type of target provides the shooter with immediate visual and audio feedback.  A unique feature of the RCSA Rimfire Challenge is that experienced participants are encouraged to help new and novice shooters move up to the next level of proficiency by sharing their tips and shooting knowledge. Matches emphasize the friendly, supportive aspects of target shooting and competition. This low-key competition should remind participants that the shooting sports are lifetime activities that are fun and affordable for men, women and youth.
Here is a good video introduction to Rimfire Challenge shooting.  Please note that it's an older video from when the sport was run by the NSSF and some things have changed a little.  Especially the equipment rules, more things are allowed in limited now than when this video was made.  Still, the video is a good introduction for those who are looking to get started.

NSSF Rimfire Challenge

Matches will be held on the first Sunday of each month, April through October.  Additionally, we sometimes add matches, weather permitting.  Watch our Facebook page for announcements about these matches and other club activities. 

Registration will begin at 9:00am and the match will begin at 10:00am.  You will need both at .22 rifle and .22 pistol.  It is recommended to bring at least 200 rounds of ammo.

Please remember the Rimfire Challenge rules state:
All firearms must be in hard or soft cases or gun rugs when brought to the designated shooting area and must be in hard or soft cases or gun rugs when removed from the designated shooting area. No holsters are allowed.

2018 Results

Results are now hosted on Practiscore.  Here is the club's match results page.

We are going to begin keeping a record list for the club matches.  There will be 4 stages (to be posted soon) that we will use.  1 of the 4 stages will be shot each month on a rotating basis.  We will be using your total stage time (4 best strings) for the record.  We will have both "Season best" and "Club Record" boards in each of 3 categories "Junior" (under 18) "Senior" (62 and over) and "General" (everyone else).  The first of the record stages will be shot at the September 2017 match.  The leader boards will be posted here after that match.
