    Has anyone competed in this kind of competition. I live in north Georgia and don't think anyone down here does. It looks like a lot of fun. I think in the video you can find a guy that makes and sells this type of target and I think he charges about $275 shipped??

    The problem with a lot of “competitions” is drawing enough people to the club to get it going.
    I have been tossing out ideas to shooters I know put a lot of 22 down range.
    Although the minute the word “match,compete,organized shoot” comes out they don’t want to do it.
    I have been trying to feel people out for a mini F class / Palma and know your limits type of 22 shoots.
    I was talking to the gent who used to run 22 silhouette.....said as the old timers dropped off no new shooters where not coming in and heard “its to hard” to many times and it slowly died

    Those "know your limits" targets are fun. Easy enough to make if you have access to a mig welder and some stock. Bolts seem to be popular.
    Theres no real set course of fire for those outside the obvious.
    You can do a bracket type shoot, do something like 25, 50, 75 and 100 yd increments, kind of a process of elimination.
    Rules are fairly straight forward, and you can modify anyway you like
    Shoot till you miss.
    Say each plate is a point, no matter the distance, most points win. Keep it simple and nobody can "game" the stage.
    I made one for Holbrook, I don't think they've used it yet. They just started this year with egg shoots/ benchrest style .22.
    I'm in the middle of stamping out knockover eggs for them right now.
    The trick to any these shoots is to make it challenging enough for the hardcore shooters, but simple enough for the new shooters.

    There are ~47 .22lr "egg shoot" matches from now through the year at various south shore clubs

    I'm pretty sure monument beach runs that "know your limits" rack during one of the months they shoot.

    I'd be interested in that. I want to try big bore up at the 1000yd ranges in VT/NH, but tough to justify the 5+hr round trip and $200 or whatever in ammo and match fees. the 22 stuff makes it easier and it's relatively cheap.
