Match Results: 29 June 2014



With new shooters from Carson City and Sacramento, we had record competitor turn-out for our June match which brought high scores and several tie-breaker shoot-off’s. Twenty shooters shared in perfect weather, and two competitors achieved the highest score the smallbore silhouette rimfire match has recorded with 39 of 40 possible. If this event continues to grow in popularity, we may be starting earlier in the morning!



Many shooters did well enough to become ranked with a difficulty enhancement, while others sharpened their game and moved up a class. Overall the match was a huge success, and shooters of all ages did extremely well. With new difficulty enhancements comes bigger challenges at the next match, which is scheduled with a 9AM start time on Saturday 7/19. Show up early at 8AM if you would like to help set-up the course and enjoy some practice shooting!

Match Results: 19 July 2014

The wind was blowing from start to finish, but that didn't stop a few shooters from moving up to a more difficult rank. Occasional gusts pushed the top scores down, with the highest hitting 34 of 40 possible with most others in the high twenties. Other shooters (especially me) were competing with a brand new rifle and made adjustments on the fly, but still managed to finish with a decent score. All in all, it was a competitive day with very close final scores.

With .22 LR ammunition finally hitting store shelves again, hopefully we'll have a large turnout to our smallbore silhouette rimfire matches. The next event is Saturday, 8/30. We've also added one more match to finish the season: Sunday, 11/2.

Match Results: 30 August 2014
The August match was a blessing for some, and a curse for others. Shooting at the 100-meter targets in breezy conditions caused a few shooters to lose their expert ranking, while others took advantage of the unqualified status and will now receive a difficulty enhancement. The first half of the match delivered perfect conditions, followed by strong winds and fierce occasional gusts. Many competitors were challenged by the wind, but everybody had a good time shooting.

Default Last .22 Match of 2014! (Reno NV)

9AM SUNDAY 11/2: the last and final .22 match of 2014! I hope to see you all out there, ready for a day of fun to finish out the season. Practice shooting begins at 8AM, with competition starting promptly at 9AM. Plus, now you can bring a second gun and essentially compete twice:

2nd Gun Rule
With approval of the Match Director, this event allows for contestants to enter a second unique gun into competition at the expense of an additional entry cost. The second gun may not be a modification of the first gun entered, and must fire an allowed cartridge as defined in the Ammunition Policy. This second gun may be pistol or rifle, of either metallic or magnified shooter class. A contestant may only receive one award per shooter class entered.

You can read the complete event description here: http://palominogunclub.org/262/small...h-description/

It's expected to be a sunny day with very little wind for tomorrows match, but temperatures are going to be very cold (mid-40's). Dress to keep warm, because winter will be welcoming us with its chilly embrace.

Season Finale Match Results: 02 November 2014

It was one for the record books! The weather had been wet and windy leading up to the very cold day of our season's final rimfire match, so nobody expected strong attendance. But when thirty shooters arrived for competition, we went BIG and had a great time.

Thank you to everyone who has participated in our smallbore silhouette matches, but most especially to those few people who show up early every match to help set-up and stay late to help put everything away. These events are fueled by your efforts, and clearly you've helped to make them fun and enjoyable.

I'm happy to see this event grow so quickly, and I've got some improvements ready for next season when we return in late March, 2015. I hope to see you then!
