Looking for a challenge? How about a 200 yard target match with a .22LR rifle or pistol? May 26, 2013 is the date. Golden Points Ranch is the place. The match will run from 2pm to 5pm.

All shooters are welcome. Any firearm chambered in .22LR ammunition is eligible to participate. All firearms must be unloaded and the action open until you are on the firing line!

You may shoot from any position. You can bring a chair or portable shooting bench if you wish. You can use iron sights or a scope. If it is a .22LR, you can use it!

You can shoot a few practice targets, or go right to the firing line and shoot for score. Practice targets will be available (two for 1$)

For the match, you will need to fire 20 rounds in 10 minutes. The best score will win! It is that simple.
