The match is conducted with safety as the first priority, including stage design, firearm handling, and safe areas. All shooters will be accompanied by qualified Range Safety Officers and Assistant Range Officers throughout the entire course of fire.
The match will consist of 6 stages (3 pistol and 3 rifle) firing at all-steel targets. Shooters will need a minimum of 150 rounds of .22 Long Rifle ammunition. Only .22 Long Rifle ammunition is allowed.
Prizes will be awarded by random drawing, and will include several firearms and many other shooting related items. Plaques will be awarded for the top shooters in each class.
