October 18, 2020 - Safety Briefing at 11:45 - Match start Noon
The NMRPC KNOW YOUR LIMITS (KYL) 22 rimfire rifle match is designed for novice to intermediate competitive experience, and features round steel targets set at a distance of 25 yards away and engaged from a benchrest shooting position. This match will teach shooters firearm safety, proper range etiquette, and basic marksmanship skill and is designed to test your knowledge of current shooting conditions, and your own capabilities. Your firearm, ammo, weather, etc. will have to be factored in.
The KYL rifle match is an individual event, with participants grouped into squads consisting of three (3) shooters to accommodate target spotting and match scoring. One shooter, one scorer, and one spotter. Squad members are not permitted to coach shooters with range conditions or target impact during this event. The stage will consist of 3 strings of 8 shots with a 60 second time limit. The first 2 strings will be back-to-back with a final string after all squad members have shot.
Equipment, Course of Fire and Rules
Any 22 rimfire long gun and sighting system is allowed. The shooter is allowed to use the range sand bags and riser stands.
Targets are swinging steel targets at 25 yards. 8 targets from 2” dia. to ¼” dia. in ¼” increments. Target value goes up as size goes down. 60 second time limit. Targets must be shot in order, largest to smallest. Target must visibly “swing” to be counted as a hit (Range Officials decision is final). If a target is shot at and missed, you lose all accumulated points for that round. If a target is shot out of order, you lose all points for that round. You may stop at any time and keep all points earned for that round. If time runs out and you have not missed, you keep your points for that round. At the end of a match, shooters may break a tie with a 50 yard shoot‐off contest for placing.

Students learn NRA’s rules for safe gun handling; shotgun parts and operation; shotgun shell components; shotgun shell malfunctions; shooting fundamentals; range rules; shooting at straight away and angled targets; cleaning; and continued opportunities for skill development.

If you’re curious about firearms, whether for personal defense or to learn a new sport, Women On Target® is the perfect place to start. These instructional shooting clinics are designed to teach you firearm safety and the fundamentals of marksmanship, giving you the confidence you need to safely handle and operate a firearm upon completion. Women On Target® clinics are available only to women — it’s a safe and friendly environment whether you’re picking up a gun for the very first time or are just brushing off some dust and need a little refresher. You’ll immediately feel at ease in the half- or full-day clinics, and will be provided with a hands-on, one-of-a-kind experience. No experience or equipment is necessary to participate.
The biggest challenge for new shooters is getting started. First Shots makes getting started in shooting very easy — and, best of all, participants that complete the post event survey are rewarded with a coupon to use on their next visit to the host range. At a First Shots seminar, you’ll receive an educational introduction to the safe and recreational use of firearms, a clear understanding of the local requirements for owning and purchasing a firearm, individual and group training, a rundown of shooting sports opportunities for all levels of interest and a chance to give shooting a try!
