The SPFGA Rimfire Range will be closed on Monday nights in July (July 9, 16, 23, 30) from 5:30-8 pm for the .22 Rimfire Silhouette Shoots.
Join us at SPFGA on Monday nights in July for .22 Rimfire Silhouette!
Join us at the Rimfire Range on Monday nights in July 5:30-8 p.m. for an all-ages, family-friendly & fun evening of rimfire silhouette shooting.
What is it?
Rimfire silhouette is a great way to inexpensively practice the fundamentals of marksmanship and involves shooting from the standing unsupported position at four sets of metal silhouettes:
- 10 chickens at 40 m
- 10 pigs at 60 m
- 10 turkeys at 77 m
- 10 rams at 100 m
One round is fired at each target. If the target falls down, it’s counted as a hit. The more hits you get, the more you’re improving as a shooter.
What do I need?
All that’s required is a .22 rimfire rifle (only .22 short, long and LR for these shoots please), 40 rounds of .22 rimfire ammo, and hearing & eye protection. Any optics are permitted, so scope or open sights are fine. If you don’t have a .22 rimfire rifle but want to give it a try, come out anyway! A loaner rifle and ammunition will be available.
Is there anything that’s out?
Only 22 short, long and LR for these shoots will be used for these shoots. For safety and equipment durability reasons, other rimfire cartridges such as .22 LR high velocity or .22 WMR are not permitted.
How do I sign up?
No formal registration is required. If you can though, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re planning to attend any of the nights so we have an idea of attendance:
