If you are interested in long range precision shooting on a budget, then you need to come on out to the Nampa Rod and Gun Club (NRAGC), silhouette range located at 7990 Bennett Road in Nampa. We shoot practice matches every Saturday with Setup/registration at 09:30 AM and shoot at 10:00AM. You do not need to be a NRAGC or NRL22 member.
The NRAGC has started a new National Rimfire Precision Rifle Discipline called NRL22. It is a national program with many clubs and members competing throughout the US for monthly scores and prizes. You can view their web site and rules at nrl22.org.
A normal Saturday practice shoot at NRAGC consists of five stages that change every month. Each stage consists of steel or paper targets at varying ranges from 25 to 100 yards. You have 90-120 seconds to shoot ten rounds, with each round having a value of 10. We shoot from many positions including; prone, sitting, kneeling and off hand. We also make the shooters try shooting from barricades on both weak and strong side. Each stage is worth 100 points and a match worth 500 points.
On the last Saturday of the month we shoot for score to be sent in to National for posting and entry for monthly prizes that are donated by our sponsors. We charge $5.00 for practice matches and $10.00 for monthly matches. You must be a NRL22 member to be eligible for prizes and national ranking.
There are three classes of shooters: Base class, women’s class and the young guns class (ages 8-18 Parent required to be present). Within each of these classes is an equipment class of either Base class which = rifles with detachable magazines, costing less than $350.00 or specific models listed in the NRL22 rules and equipped with scopes costing less than $750.00. In the base class the stock may be modified (not replaced) but the barrel and trigger must remain stock. The other equipment class is Open = anything in 22LR goes.

Typical range setup with steel targets ranging from ¼” to 6” and paper targets from 1 .5” to 3”. This will really challenge you and your equipment.
