Extreme Rimfire Silhouette

The following businesses and individuals are sponcers for ERS in 2016:  Foxhole Guns and Archery, Lee's Exterminating,
Charlie Craft, Gerald Porter, Poule' Pye'.  Please remember and thank them for their support of our discipline.

 

Special Announcement Registration will begin at 7:45 and shooting will start at 8:30 sharp.

We will be testing out a new class this year - .22 SACS (Semi-Auto Class Squirrel). The qualifications will be the same as the existing Squirrel Class but applied to production unmodified .22 rimfire semi-automatics such as the Ruger 10/22's or Remington 597's. If successful, I'm sure a SACU (Semi-Auto Class Unlimited) will not be far behind. So dust off those old semi-autos you have in the closet, mount up a 3X9 power scope and come on out and have a great time with us shootin' little bitty metal targets out to 212 yards.

This new class will hopefully draw a few more shooters to our events. I am looking forward to seeing all of you at the firing line.   Good Luck!

This match is for rimfire firearms. The targets are made from ¼" and 3/8" steel plate and are cut in the shape, silhouette, of different animals. The chickens are 3/8" and pigs, turkeys, and rams are ¼". Target damage will not be tolerated. Any firearm damaging targets will be removed from the firing line. The goal of the contest is to hit and knock off the rail as many of the silhouettes as possible. The targets consist of: 10 chickens at 75 meters, 10 pigs at 112 meters, 10 turkeys at 144 meters, 10 mini targets at 144 meters, and 10 rams at 189 meters.

This sport is best shot with a spotter. It is up to each shooter to arrange for a spotter. The spotter’s task will be to read and interpret the wind and other conditions, and then relay this information to the shooter so that they can make adjustments as necessary to get and stay on target. Each shooter will be provided a score card. A perfect score will be 40 points. The 10 mini targets are bonus targets.

 

The range master will call "shooters to the line" at this time all shooters will bring to the line their gun. After the shooters have made the necessary preparations to their position, they will be given the command "READY". At this time empty chamber indicators may be removed from the firearm and can be loaded and made ready. The "READY" period is 15 seconds long. After the "READY" period the shooters will be given the command "FIRE" each shooter will then have 10 minutes to fire as many sighter shots as they feel necessary, and then ten record shots. When the shooter completes his sighter shots he will notify his spotter that he is going for score, and he will then fire one shot at each of his 10 targets.

 

The targets will be shot from left to right; any target shot out of order will be scored a miss. After the shooter begins his record shots no further sighter shots will be allowed.
