Precision Rimfire 22 Challenge October 13, 2019
Except for a little rain during reset, it was a great day compared to the last many months of heat. We had some EXCELLENT shooting and scores today. Brian Edwards killed it in Varmint today with a 91/100 - the best score of the season for a challenge match. Gary Stevenson was close behind with an 86. Several other shooters shot their best score of the season. In Tactical, Rob Ormond also set the high mark for the season with an 86, which was fantastic considering he shot from strange positions designed to make it harder.
I tried last time's new distance find your limit stage with 3" plates this time - 1 plate every 10 yards from 50 to 160, and the top was 9 hits, out to 130, by a couple of shooters, as well as some right under that. That worked much better this time.
We had a new set of 3 targets this time thanks to Steve Farrel. 6" plates with 1/2" holes in them, with a small plate behind the hole that flipped up an orange flasher when hit. We had a couple of people get all 3 (at 50,65, and 80 yards) in 3 shots, no easy feat for rifle or shooter. Thanks Steve!
The 2 Vortex half-price certificates were won by Jeff Burns and Ron Bakis, and we gave away a few more hats too. If you ever get a chance to speak to Vortex on the phone or social media or at a show or something, please thank them for sponsoring the match series this year.
Thanks to everyone who came out to shoot and most of all THANK YOU to everyone that helped with setup and teardown. None of the matches would be possible for me to do alone, and especially not this one.
