.22 Rimfire Match Results

Ron Gearren Rimfire Match, September 19th
The Ron Gearren .22 Match began with 11 shooters on a cool, calm day.  All shooters had a good day and scores were very close. The wind got up just as the Iron Sight Class began, but it did not seem to bother Paul Brinkman with his new (old) “Annie 54”.  He had a top score of 250/20x despite the wind and his first time shooting in this class.
