The Rimfire Competition Academy is a new event for the CRPS 2022 Season and is a rimfire competition fundamentals teaching event designed for the new and less experienced competitor. Our goal is to provide our attendees with a practical understanding of the tools and techniques needed to confidently compete in a long-range rimfire match.
We will take the competitor through the following topics:
- overview of the basic equipment needed to compete
- setting up the rifle/optics to fit the competitor
- zeroing your rifle/scope
- ammo selection considerations
- ballistics and ballistics calculators (calculating and confirming trajectory, understanding wind)
- In-depth configuration and validation of ballistic calculator data (Strelok Pro)
- positional shooting basics
- using support equipment - bipods and bags
- reading wind, wind factors and wind bracketing
- planning for your upcoming match - what you need and what you need to know
- match and stage safety procedures
- planning and executing your stage strategy - creating your stage checklist
- what to do when you miss...never miss the same way twice.
- 3-stage match
"I attended the Rimfire Competition Academy with my daughter and found it to be outstanding value - even more than I expected. I LOVED it!
Rick is an excellent instructor. He’s hugely encouraging and makes even the novice like me feel like I can do this! He gives clear direction, teaching in a compelling way and at the same time there is plenty of space and grace to learn, ask questions and never the feeling that you should have been an expert already - lol! The mix of demonstrations, practical application and explanations works together brilliantly to not only learn but retain the information. It was particularly fun to end the day with a practice session to apply all the learning in a fun way that set us up to be able to compete with confidence. "

Rick does an excellent job of instructing and teaching the basics of long range shooting. I was so impressed I purchased a new 22LR precision rifle and scope.
Long range 22LR works for me as it is fun, economical and is a great way to implement ballistic software and settings. Thank You."
