    Douglas Ridge Rifle Club is hosting another .22 Rimfire Challenge Saturday, July 26th from 8:30a-5p.

    What is .22 Rimfire Challenge? It is an introduction to competitive shooting for speed. You can use anything chambered in .22LR, pistol or rifle. When you come to the line you will have 5-7 static steel targets to shoot at. A coach will explain what targets you are shooting at and give you the command to fire. Shoot at all of your targets as fast as you can. When you hit the last target (known as the stop plate) the timer stops. You get 5 chances to shoot each stage of the competition. Your worst time is tossed out and the rest are added together to make your score. That’s all there is to it. No reloading, no holster draws, no move and shoot, no mind games – just fast and fun!

    Pre-registration is available by sending an email to ben.edman.pdx@gmail.com Please include the full name of all participants so we can reserve you a spot.

    Mark your calendars now. Fees are $5 per gun for club members or $7.50 for non members and lunch is included. There are courses of fire for both pistol and rifle. Come on out and give it a try :)

    Please note; this is an all day event. Registration will start at 8, safety brief at 8:45 and start shooting at 9.

    A few notes for those who have participated in the last few events:
    * Once again we will be using both the Silhouette range and the Dynamic range
    * We will be using the squad method again
    * I will be setting up stages Fri night from 7p-9p - anyone willing to help would be appreciated (club members can get work hours)

    I've attached a flyer to help get the word out - hope to see you all out there.

    Looks like I'll be able to make this one. I'll send an email now.


    EDIT: Is there a catagory for non-simi auto guns? I want to bring out my lever gun but wasn't sure if I'd be the only one there using one. I'll probably bring it for kicks anyway just to see how fast I can run her.

    In a sanctioned match there is a manual action class. I haven't had enough participants with manual actions to justify doing it in these 'fun' matches.

    That's ok, I'm fairly new to it so I still have a long way to go.

    I'm still going to bring it for fun. Now if I can just get out to practice a bit before hand ;).

    Looking forward to it! See y'all there.

    Quick question.

    How many rounds per stage are shot? 10? Or does it depend on your magazine size?

    Anyone using speed loaders for tube fed mags? I ordered one but it will not be here in time now. Curious what you use and where you got it.

    Thanks for input - this is my first time to this and want to make sure my speed loaders are filled right and that I bring enough ammo.

    5 ten shot rounds per stage 5 stages total = 250rds
    Any mag size you want but no more then 10 shots fired per round.
    I run 5 ten shot mags.

    I was under estimating at 50 rounds per gun so I am super glad I asked:oops:.

    Thanks:)

    There's 5-7 targets per stage. You shoot each stage 5-6 times. There are 8 stages. Roughly 325 rounds total.

    For temporary speed loaders, swing by 7/11 for some super big gulp straws. Tape off one end. Fill them tips first.

    See you tomorrow.

    Kind of random. But I have a mossberg 930 and a bushmaster ACR for sale. If someone wants to look at them I can bring them to the shoot.

    A few minor changes this time: first I'm dumping the handicaps. The targets are so big that any benefit you get from optics are lost on how much time it takes to aquire your target. Red dot may be the exception but I'm going to try it and see what happens.

    Also, I'm still going to offer a mulligan but it needs to be asked for before the stop plate is hit.

    Hope to see a bunch of smiling faces in the morning. I can support 80 shooters :)

    Top prize is a $75 GC to Fisherman's. Plus an assortment of other prizes/awards.

    Thanks! That'd be great! Is it picky about ammunition?
