NYS Sporter rifle is a postal target competition using 22 cal. rimfire rifles. The shooting position is off-hand standing with the target at 50 feet. The sport is designed so that expensive special equipment is not required. It is possible to be competitive with equipment you may already own. The clubs team meets every Monday evening starting at 5:30 and all Binghamton Rifle Club members are encouraged to join in the fun. The club also competes in a state wide rifle league.
Matches are held weekly throughout the season. A match consists of 3 completed targets with 10 shots per target. Shooters are given 10 minutes to complete each target. The target used is the NRA Official 50 ft. Light Rifle Target A-32. The maximum score per target is 100. A perfect match score is 300 (it does happen!).
Teams consist of 5 or more members. The top 5 individual scores for each match constitute the team score for that match. All scores fired are reported to the league and are used to determined individual class standings.
Come on out and join in the fun.
