Hi Guys, This is Johnny Garcia aka Jaisan- have been wanting to do Tactical Precision Rimfire ala 6mm club and SoCal. I have Glocks and have been a user of glocks for years and am a fan of this forum, but I also shoot rimfire long distance (25- 200 meters). Have watched rimfire threads in other forums and hoped and prayed we would all be able to do so (it's cheap kasi eh!). Well myself and a friend (Sonny Marin) have started to write the rules and regulations with the help of PPSA Anton Lorenzo which will be presented to the PPSA board for approval and it's full support in getting us organized and permits to transfer with FED. In the Bolo Cup will be there at the 75 meter range with a fun shoot with Armscor 22 rifles - have talked to Bob Sajot and si Major Tulaio and have their full support. We will try to hold weekly practice matches with at least one full match a month at the Armscor range (from 25 to 100 meters (Bob has figured a way to give us a hundred meter range (thanks Bob)). Will probably hold the first match after the gun show this July. In the meantime we will try to hold weekly fun matches 25 -50 rounds 25 - 50-75 meter matches in Armscor PTR permitting with the big competition slated for Dec at the Splendido Taal range wherein we will have short range, medium Range, and Long range matches. A primer on Long Range Rimfire Precision (LRRP) is as follows: "LONG RANGE RIMFIRE PRECISION RIFLE COMPETITIONS The 1st Edition Long Range Rimfire Precision Rifle Competition Rulebook is currently being reviewed and finalized by the Philippine Practical Shooting Association (PPSA) and the National Range Officers Institute (NROI). Pending its official release, the following general guidelines for the conduct of LRRP Rifle matches are being disseminated for the information of those intending to experience the new riflesport discipline. Long Range Rimfire Precision Rifle Competitions (LRRP Rifle Competitions) are open to all single action, manual action (bolt action, lever action or pump) or semi-automatic rifles chambered for the .22 long rifle cartridge. Rifles chambered for the .22 rimfire magnum or .17 rimfires will not be allowed - but with enough interest, the PPSA Board may consider the use of rifles chambered for these cartridges in subsequent matches. Competitions will consist of shootings strings or courses of fire requiring no more than five rounds to complete with a par time of one minute. A combination of paper, frangible and reactive targets at distances of anywhere from 25 to 200 meters and farther will be used as target sets, with the shooter landing the most number of hits on target being declared as the match winner. To be competitive, rifles must be able to shoot a one-inch group or less at fifty meters - roughly the equivalent of a 2 MOA accuracy. Because of the distances involved, the use of a riflescope will be a necessity. At present and until further notice, all shooters will be competing in a single Open Division. However, the LRRP Rifle Rulebook as proposed eventually calls for classifying rifles into different divisions, e.g., Light Rifles weighing less than 8.5 pounds, Medium Rifles weighing more than 8.5 pound but less than 11.5 pounds and Heavy Rifles weighing more than 11.5 pounds. The top three shooters in each rifle division will be declared as match winners. All shooters competing in a LRRP rifle match will be awarded Certificates of Recognition which will provide their corresponding shooter classification for that particular match. The LRRP rifleman classification and the corresponding match scores needed to achieve the same as a percentage of total possible score are as follows: Master Rifleman - 91.0% - 100.0% Expert Rifleman - 81.0% - 90.0% Sharpshooter - 51.0% - 80.0% Marksman - 36.0% - 50.0% Basic Rifleman - 5.0% - 35.0% Unless otherwise indicated in the course of fire, targets may be engaged by the competitor in a freestyle manner. Shooting mats or ground cloths that do not provide undue advantage are allowed as some of the targets will be engaged from a prone shooting position. Simple shooting slings, bipods, backpacks, rucksacks or sandbags may be used as an aid in shooting, along with elbow pads and knee pads unless prohibited in the course of fire. However, specially shooting jackets and shooting gloves that provide artificial support to the rifle while shooting will not be allowed, and so with palm rests, butt rests and butt hooks. Adjustable butts must be centered and adjustable cheek pieces fixed and taped in place. LRRP rifle competitions will use the same rimfire tactical precision targets that may be found and downloaded from www.6mmbr.com and www.snipershide.com. Additional information and updates regarding the sport of long range rimfire precision rifle competition will be posted at www.ppsa.org.ph." If you guys want to join us or shoot or be emailed as to when we will have competitions and what courses are: just pm or email me - will setup a separate email for this or go to PTRA which we will transform to LRRP - but we will hit all forums to try to keep everyone updated. I will be at the Bolo Cup on Sunday together with my partner Sonny Marin to answer all and any questions - we welcome everyone to join in at this point in time. Also we will be working with Armscor courtesy of Bob and George Chua to produce a 22 rifle suitable for this sport (ie. heavy barrel, magazine feed, 5 round magazine, Silouhette type stock, capable of sub moa at 100 (will try - mukhang kaya) at a decent price). For those of you who want to shoot, who want to learn rifle marksmanship (as we also will be learning together), want to have fun, want to bring their children- join us and hopefully we can make this a fun, fair, and legitimate discipline... regards to all Jaisan Wanna kill these ads?
