RSCA Rimfire Challenge

2018 RCSA Rimfire Challenge Michigan State Championship

RCSA Rimfore Challenge

RCSA Shooters,

Over one hundred shooters participated in the Eighth annual RCSA Rimfire Challenge at Rockford Sportsman’s Club. Decent weather (no rain!) was appreciated by all. The top overall shooter was Matheu Langston, who completed the eight stages in just 70.44 seconds! Congratulations, Matheu! Many thanks are in order to the twenty sponsors who provided door prizes for everyone, and the twenty-five volunteers who made the match happen.

Thanks to all!

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has transferred management of the Rimfire Challenge matches to the Rimfire Challenge Shooting Association (RCSA) effective 01-Jan-2018. This will be the same type of shooting, with many of the same people managing it.

The RSC match will include 8 Stages – 4 Pistol, 4 Rifle. All Steel Targets, 250 Rounds (Minimum), 22 Rimfire Only.
