MSVA Rimfire

Rimfire at Mountain Valley Sportsman's Association

MSVA Rimfire, a variation of “Rimfire Challenge” and “Ruger Rimfire” is offered the fourth Saturday each month at our Action Shooting Range. MVSA Rimfire is for .22 Long Rifle ammunition only. Both pistol and rifle are required to shoot the match. We have loaner guns available and ammunition available to purchase, if needed. Bolt action and lever action rifles are allowed, but semi-automatic rifles are more suitable to compete, as contestants are shooting for time and accuracy. MVSA does not shoot a “Cowboy division.” MVSA follows National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) Rimfire Challenge safety rules modified for our requirements. There are three pistol and three rifle stages for each match. Each stage consists of two 10-round strings shot at steel targets for a total of 120 rounds per match. MVSA Rimfire matches are open to the public for anyone who can safely and legally handle a firearm. If you have any questions contact Jerry Kalick at
