The Desoto Rifle & Pistol Club 22 LR Precision Rifle Match is a competitive, precision shooting match which draws its roots from the NRL series. We utilize a variety of shooting positions to engage different size steel targets, at different distances from the firing line at the 600-yard range with 22 rifles. Multiple shooting positions, multiple plates, and multiple distances, come test your skills!

Using current range infrastructure and equipment, shooters will compete in a match comprised of multiple stages, developed to test every shooters skill, and their grit. Each stage consists of a variety of different sized steel targets, at different distances, shot from different shooting positions. Shooting sequence and scoring will be established by the Match Director and will be clearly explained prior to each match during the shooters meeting and by the Range Officer prior to the start of each stage (match books may be distributed at check-in to explain each stage). Match scores will be retained by the Match Director and posted on the website and DR&PC Facebook page. Shooter of the year will be required to compete in a minimum of five matches, with the top five scores being used to determine “Shooter of the Year”; the End of Year match is eligible to be used as one of the five matches.
