BIGFORK GUN CLUB
Practice & local small-bore (22 rim-fire) metallic silhouette competitions and Prone Match Schedule:
Matches are held Wednesday evenings starting after APRIL 15th, (weather and range conditions permitting), finishing in September.
Matches beginning between 5:30 PM to 6:00 PM.
(Help is always appreciated with set up.)
THIRD Wednesday - Silhouette
FOURTH Wednesday - Small-bore Long Range (prone at 200-yd).
NOTE: On MAY 30 & AUG. 29 - Trial International-style 3-position 50-meter matches. NOTE: International-style will be similar to what is commonly shot in Europe, using iron sights and paper metric targets at 50 meters / 55 yards.
As much as possible, shooters will be classified by score so they will be mostly shooting with others of their skill level.
|SILHOUETTE: SMALLBORE RIFLE|
SILHOUETTE, YOU CAN USE ALMOST ANY .22 RIMFIRE RIFLE AND STANDARD-VELOCITY
AMMUNITION. (High-velocity ammo is prohibited as it can damage the targets.) RIFLES
RANGE FROM HUNTING / PLINKING TO FANCY CUSTOM TARGET; BOLT ACTION OR SEMI-AUTO.
ADJUSTABLE SCOPES FROM 6 TO 16 POWER ARE USEFUL AND PREFERABLE, BUT HOLDING OVER AT THE
VARIOUS DISTANCES CAN WORK TO START WITH.
COME TO A MATCH AND SEE WHAT OTHER SHOOTERS ARE USING.
.22 RIMFIRE WITH SCOPES, EXCEPT IN THE INTERNATIONAL 3-POSITION (IRON PEEP OR OPEN SIGHTS).
IN THE VARIOUS PRONE EVENTS, AN ADJUSTABLE SLING IS A HUGE ASSET. SPOTTING SCOPES ARE ALSO VERY USEFUL.
COME OUT AND ENJOY A FUN AND CHALLENGING SPORT!
