Silhouette







The NSRG holds .22 cal rifle and .22 cal handgun silhouette matches.  Although competitive in nature these matches are strictly for fun. There is no prize except the honour of winning.

 

A set of targets consists of four types of animal shaped steel silhouettes, chickens, pigs, turkeys and rams, five of each kind. One shot is taken at each silhouette; to count as a hit the target must be knocked off its stand. Two sets of silhouettes are set on a stand all in one shooting bay. The highest possible score in a round of shooting is 20.

  • Handgun silhouette matches are usually held in Bay 3 and rifle silhouette matches are usually held in Bay 1. 
  • The entry fee is $3.00 for NSRG members/$5.00 for non-members. 
  • Coffee and cookies are provided. 

 

All are welcome!
