Rapidfire Rimfire Pistol Match in North Alabama

Post by sheffieldshooter » Sat Jan 31, 2015 5:53 pm

It was overcast and cold at the Crooked Oak range this morning. But, it was dry.

Seven of us showed with our rimfire handguns to take on the steel from 12 yards.

The shooter engages one row of silhouettes at a time. The range officer starts a timer with the shooter's first shot and stops the timer when the last silhouette in the row is down. Rams first, then turkeys, then pigs, and finally the fierce little chickens. One's aggregate time is his/her score. A three second good-shooting reward is subtracted from a row if the shooter goes 6 for 6 (no misses).

That looks like a cool little match. :-bd What size / scale targets are you guys shooting at? I guess that semi autos are the popular choice of firearm, which models do you find the best suited for the match?

Those NRA 1/5th scale silhouettes. However, I had a special order manufactured. They are cut from 3/8ths inch thick steel plate instead of the NRA's usual 1/4 inch plate. We have found that they hold up much better, especially under the hammering of bulk high velocity ammo. You may find our Rimfire Match Director's range report from yesterday helpful:

Cool, thanks for that. Will have to give this a go at the local range.
