Come on over and join the fun.  Last Sundays match day was outstanding.

We welcome any shooter with a good nature.

Club rifle and  club pistol are for anyone who does not want to shoot an NRA class.

Maybe they want to try a scoped rifle on the larger targets? That is how we all start out.

Maybe they have a rifle that has no NRA category , like an AR-22 with iron sights.

Or its a way for dad or mom and the kids to get into the game without pressure to score big.

But it is fun.  Even I, whip out the 10/22 with tech sights (appleseed style) and shoot club rifle sometimes.

We shoot from 9am to4pm.  So there is plenty of time to warm up with a club class and work up to an offical class.

Good luck!

A scope CZ 455 will work.  I carry one as my backup match rifle.  The CZ shoots just as good as my Anschutz 1712.  Standard  class the rifle with scope has to be under 10.2 pounds with a safe trigger. Bull barrel is okay in standard class and you can go a little more than a hunting  style  rifle stock.   In the hunter rifle class the rifle  with  scope has to be under 8 1/2 pounds with a 2 pound or higher  trigger pull.  Hunter rifle must  have a taper barrel and a hunting type stock.  There are other things in both classes concerning scope height and type/size of stock/comb/fore end.  Most club matches that I have shot over the years don't get to much upset on the little things. They want the new shooters to grow the sport.   But, if you go to a State Match, Regional Match, and/or the Nationals your rifle will be checked.  Seen many crying because their rifle did not make the rules during inspection.  But to get back to your question a CZ 455 will make a good silhouette  rifle.  Just get the one with the taper barrel, work the trigger to 2.25 pounds, keep weight under 8.5 pounds, and use the factory  stock.  You can use a Hunter Rifle  in the Standard Rifle class.

The CZ'S are damned amazing right out of the box.

Deerslayer.  Just come on over and try it.  Anyone can show up with Any .22lr.  We will fit you in.

CZ455 will be right at home.

We run a very casual match.  I have scales and trigger pull guages available if anyone wants to see how thier rig fits the rules.  But we dont turn anyone away.

I will make up a.class for anyone who does not fit in an NRA class.

Heck, we once had more AR-22 shooters than NRAsmallbore.  

Everyone is welcome.

I have no idea what my 455 weighs, but I would bet the farm it makes the 8.5 lb cutoff.  I am going to try to make it April 15.
