February 25th, 2017 - High power rifle silhouette matches begin on the first Sunday in March. 3/5/17 is the date. We will continue these matches on the first Sunday of each month. The match will go on, rain or shine or snow or cold.
This year, to include more types of rifles to shoot in the high power silhouette monthly matches; we're going to try allowing semi-auto military rifles in these matches.The NRA Rifle Silhouette rule book shows that the times as well as the target sizes are the same as the regular high power rifle silhouette rules. The military rifle rule is rule 3.1.2 in the NRA Rifle Silhouette rule book.
There will is no requirement to purchase a score record book to use a military rifle. However, if the shooter wants to purchase a book for his other high power or smallbore competitions, and he or she uses a military rifle, then those scores will be entered into the score record book. That way, if the shooter attends other matches, a classification will already be established so the shooter will be able to shoot in a class, rather than unclassified and in Master class.
Military Rifle will be a category, for awards purposes. Just like AR rifle, which will continue to be shot in our matches. Awards will be the same as the rest. If enough shooters participate in any category, a winner of the category will be awarded. I think 3 shooters per category should be enough for an award.
Fees: With Military Rifle, we could have a total of four categories: High Power Standard Rifle, High Power Hunting Rifle, AR-15 rifle, and Semi-Auto Military Rifle. Fees will be as follows: 1 rifle - $15. 2 rifles - $25. 3 rifles - $35. 4 rifles - $40.
In a row pins - In high power rifle, we do not have correct yardage for any pins of 5 or 10 in row pins other than chickens. However, this year, we will include AR's for in-a row chickens as well as Military rifles and of course the other high power rifles already allowed. The AR's and military rifles will both get the same color as high power rifle. Or, if high power color runs out, then smallbore color will be used, depending on availability.
Any questions, suggestions or comments please email match director Roger Estes @ firstname.lastname@example.org.

May 10th, 2016 - A note from Match Director Roger Estes, regarding the Smallbore Silhouette Match this weekend:
"Kelly Engel fired a long run on pigs of 37, not 22. I discussed this with Greg Connor. Mr. Connor is the head of the NRA Silhouette Department. He advised me on the rule. So, congratulations to Miss Engel for outshooting the last Fairfax Rod & Gun Club long run by 14 pigs! In case anyone would like to know: Mr. Connor advised me that for ladies, the national record for smallbore pigs is 55. Therefore a longrun of 56 will get a new national record. So, if a lady shoots 15 straight, then, think of it, only 41 more to go!! Our July match, a State Championship, is an NRA registered match. That national record could be broken in that match."
Congratulations to Kelly Engel for being our new long run champion in pigs for Fairfax Rod & Gun Club!
