Gun Club Attracts 125 for NSSF Rimfire CHALLENGE

Old Fort Gun Club, in Fort Smith, Ark., hosted an NSSF Rimfire Challenge target-shooting competition April 26-27 that brought together 125 competitors in divisions for youth through seniors. The match attracted target shooters from 10 states. More than 30 participants said it was their first time competing in a shooting event. Thirty-six of the 125 competitors were female, 17 were juniors and 17 seniors, demonstrating the broad appeal of the Rimfire Challenge format. “The NSSF Rimfire Challenge is designed to be family friendly, affordable and provide a low-key introduction to competition target shooting,” said Zach Snow, NSSF’s Manager of Shooting Promotions. “We commend Old Fort Gun Club for putting on a well-run Rimfire Challenge match.” NSSF Rimfire Challenge was developed to introduce newcomers to target shooting by providing individuals and families with a safe, fun and exciting first-time experience using .22-caliber handguns and rifles and steel targets. Formerly known as the Ruger Rimfire Challenge, NSSF this year assumed administrative responsibilities for the fast-growing program.
