    My fellow BOGs, let us shoot the Gopher Flats 22LR match on May 27.
    5 pistol and 5 rifle stages. 22s only. Juniors shoot for free. Check out the Area 2 website at uspsa.org.

    At my club, .22LR shooting is taken to great levels of seriousness which I don't fathom.

    They have 200 meeters shoots with Winchester and Anschutz 28-inch rifles with iron sights and match ammo - Eley tenex, Fiocchi, Federal, etc.

    At this distance, the round is very susceptible to wind and it's impressive to see old gents print everything into a nice round hole.

    Melbu, to show my support, I will buy a .22lr rifle if you set up the match.:supergrin: I have a .22WMR pero I think that would be too much for silouette, it might punch a hole in the steel targets.

    I think any 22lr rifle will do. Categories only separate those who have scopes and those with iron sights.
