Smallbore silhouette match is especially fun because of its interactive targets. Scoring is easy. Either the target is knocked over or not. It is not a gear game.  A shooter only needs a 22 rifle and ammo in order to compete. We shoot four different size targets at four different distances while using three different shooting positions.  We have five classes for shooters of different skill levels, plus high over all, lady, and junior ribbons. Shooters may compete in both magnified and non magnified classes. New to a smallbore silhouette event? We will go out of our way to help you. Bring out your twenty-two for a fun morning match.  Location: covered smallbore range at the west side of Regional Shooting Facility located at 21555 Pyramid Way.
