    Rimfire Falling Steel at Wildcat Valley!

    It is official, we will be hosting Rimfire Falling Steel matches at Wildcat this year!

    For those not familiar with Rimfire Falling Steel (RFS) it is an action shooting sport that uses barricades and shooting areas like USPSA but uses steel knockdown targets and .22LR rimfire only. It is tremendous fun to shoot, it is a great transition for junior shooters going from Steel Challenge to USPSA or IDPA, it is inexpensive (you can shoot it with a Ruger Mark III or a 10/22), and it is fast paced with fast resets between shooters. There is a maximum of 25 targets per stage and we will have five stages per match.

    If you're curious about what RFS stages look like here's a video of Aaron at RFS nationals in Chattanooga TN last year: https://www.facebook.com/TeamApplied...6864160530876/

    We look forward to hosting these matches and hopefully will see you guys out for these matches. They will be held on Sundays after the USPSA matches at Wildcat. Currently scheduled dates for matches are as follows:

    April 5th
    May 3rd
    June 7th
    August 2nd
    September 6th
    October 4th

    Boy, if it wasn't such a long drive, I'd check those out. I miss Wildcat from my time living in Lafayette!
    Anything is possible

    What are the equipment requirements to complete a course of fire with pistol or rifle?

    This is what I found on the rules Longbeard. I am making an assumption that this will be what they use.

    Thanks. Curious about carrying mags in the limited divisions. Guessing belts and pouches are used?

    Deisel24v, that is the correct set of rules.

    All stages are shot from the low ready regardless of division so no holster is required but can be used for a handgun if you prefer.

    Magazines are typically on the belt using pouches but per the rules can be carried "anywhere on person".

    It is a relatively new series (started in early 2019) but has already grown quite a bit. It's a lot of fun to shoot and you don't need much to get started.
