    Great event Ben! From now on, we expect a gourmet lunch at every Rim-fire Challenge. I had two pulled pork sandwiches and a few nibbles during the pistol portion. Your best ever!

    Ben, great match, my son and I had a great time! Thank you, you can be sure we will be back for the next one.

    Joe, it was nice putting a face to the screen name. You run a great site and shoot pretty well too!

    I would have shown up to this! Need to get myself some more High Standard mags tho... and I guess a holster?
    This sort of thing sounds like a lot of fun.

    More mags is a definite plus, but the folks in your squad will help you reload if you are short.

    When not shooting firearms are kept cased or boxed at this match so no holster is needed.

    Come out! My son and I shot it for the first time yesterday. We had a great time. I'm bringing my daughter as well next time around. It will be a great family day.

    Sorry I missed your post yesterday or I would have looked you up. Maybe we talked and didn’t realize it? I was with the read headed Mrs308 who shot better that I.

    I just added them as well! Thank you! :)
    That’s good to know. I’ll look up more about it on their site, just to be sure I know the rules. Thanks!

    I never knew shooting at steel targets could be so much fun, I'm hooked! It was awesome meeting those of you I met. One of my goals for 2018 is to attend as many shooting events as possible, so hopefully I'll be seeing you guys and other members around more often :)

    Between this and the Appleseed events I've attended, I'm convinced that Ben (@Kimber Custom) can do no wrong when it comes to running these things. Great job on the pulled pork too! Hopefully next time we won't have to cut the day short (I really want to shoot those pistol stages).

    Thanks to all who came and the kind words. I was expecting a larger crowd but 65% growth was not on my radar. Thanks for rolling with the punches as we worked out some of the technical difficulties (stupid keyboard :mad:)

    Could have stood a few degrees warmer but it wasn't wet so I'm not complaining :) Here are a few pictures I took: https://photos.app.goo.gl/jzwes5SPmMgfnHaR2

    And of course the results are in:
    Overall Champion with a 138:73 (who was neither the fastest pistol or rifle shooter) Connor Toyooka
    Top Youth, 209.83 Cole Mckinnon
    Top Lady, 226.09 Sherry Mates
    Top Pistol, 50.54 John Mcclelland
    Top Rifle, 66.61 Maggie Rowe

    Our next event is May 12th

    Thank you for hosting another great day filled with the sound of .22 hitting steel and good people. My wife and 7 year old son had a blast and can't wait to come to the next event! However, sadly this means I will need to buy more firearms.. ;)

    @Kimber Custom

    Are these dates correct? Want to double check before adding them to the NWFA calendar (and my personal one :)).
