Here is a little background:
1. The NRL22 is a national group. They set the Course Of Fire (COF) at the beginning of the month. Each club in the country shoots the same COF.
2. You can go to www.nrl22.org and download the COF for the month. We will have practice sessions during the month.
3. The COF is 5 stages. Usually 10 shots. Typically 2 minutes to fire the 10 shots.
4. The COF has 2 stages shot from the prone position. Bonnie has talked to the NRL22 about our shooters being senior citizens with parts replaced. The NRL was very understanding. If your body won't do prone, you can shoot from a bench instead.
5. Match scores must be turned in before the end of the month. A NRL22 membership costs $50 per year. If you are a member, you pay $10 to shoot the match and your score is posted nationally. If you are not a member, you shoot the match for free, but your scores are Not posted.
These contests are going to be a lot of fun. In September, they shot using a stepladder as a rest. In October, we are using a car tire as a rest.
If you are back in the Valley, we are practicing at 8:00 am this Thurs, Fri, and Sat. Bring your .22 rimfire rifle and try it.
If you are not South yet, make sure to bring your .22 rimfire rifle along.
Note: John DeLeon and Mark Hall set up the 300 yard target and the range is mowed all the way out to 300 yards. .223's and .308's have at it.
