Divisions:        This match will have two divisions, Open and Telescopic.

Rifle:               This match is designed for shooters to use their favorite basic 22, not heavy target rifles.  The maximum weight allowed is 7.5 pounds including sights and an optional sling.    Rifles must be chambered in .22 cal. long rifle, magnum rimfire or .17 cal. rifles cannot be used.  Rifles used may be either manually operated or semi-automatic.  Shooters with manually operated rifles are given extra time in rapid fire.  Tactical 22 rifles are allowed for this match, but must meet weight and trigger rules.

Prohibited:       Specialized shooting coats and shooting gloves are not allowed.

Sights:             Any rifle with receiver mounted sights will compete in the T division.  Scopes are limited to a maximum of 6 power.  Scopes with more power than the limit may be used if they are set at or below 6 power.

Triggers:          Triggers must be at least 3 pounds for all rifles.  A digital scale will be used to weigh both triggers and the rifles.  No rifles will however be disqualified as this is a fun match, not the Olympics.       

Rimfire sporter firing is done from 25 and 50 yards on special targets.  Shooting starts from 50 yards. Competitors have 15 minutes for sighting or practice.  Please bring a shooting mat, rug or piece of carpet to lay on for the first stage.

Prone:                          Shooters begin at 50 yards with a sighting or practice series and then shoot ten shots for record slow-fire in the prone position, followed by two five-shot rapid-fire series.  Shooters will have 10 minutes to fire the slow-fired portion of this stage.

Rapid fire:                   Bolt and lever action rifles will have 30 while semi-auto rifles will have 25 seconds to fire 5 shots.  Shooters will then be given enough time to reload and make ready before firing the second 5 rounds.

Sitting/Kneeling:         This is followed by ten slow fire shots and two five-shot rapid-fire series in the sitting or kneeling position at 50 yards.

Standing:                     Targets are then placed at the 25-yard line where shooters conclude with ten shots slow fire and two five-shot rapid-fire series in the standing position.
