Rimfire Sporter Program

The Rimfire Sporter Program is starting this summer, when current public health restrictions are lifted. This is a developmental marksmanship program for members/family ages 12 and up.

Our Rimfire Sporter Program will provide a fun and economical way to develop your marksmanship skills. We’ll fire from prone, sitting/kneeling, and standing positions. All you need is a magazine-fed .22LR rifle that has a 5-shot capacity. To keep your costs low and to ensure a level playing-field, no “tricked-out” rifles are allowed. You can begin now with our self-paced video tutorial, which will provide the knowledge for you to begin practicing on your own. The video series can be found in our Members Only area.

We’ll follow-up with an instructional practice match, and finally a series of fun rifle matches.

Please direct any questions to RifleLCIWLA@gmail.com.
We hope to see you at the range!
