Rimfire Challenge Scheduled at Platte River State Park

LINCOLN – Learn the basics of rimfire steel challenge and competitive shooting July 11 at Platte River State Park with the First Shots Second Round Rimfire Challenge.

This free event, sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, will be held at the Roger G. Sykes Outdoor Heritage Education Complex at 9 a.m. It is open to the first 20 registrants ages 12 and up. Those who bring their own rimfire rifle must bring their own ammunition.
