RI: Smallbore Rifle League

Founded 80 years ago in 1931, the RI Smallbore Rifle League is kicking off another season next week.  The league shoots Thursday evenings with half the matches being postal matches and the other half being shoulder-to-shoulder competition. The course of fire is a quarter course (10 shots in each position, prone, standing, and kneeling).  You do not need to be a member of the club or a RI resident in order to shoot for a team.  Chances are if you are in eastern CT, southern MA, or anywhere in RI, there is a participating club near you! There is a great steak dinner and awards banquet at the end of the season.  We are looking for young and old, experienced or just starting out to join in the fun. If you are interested or want more info contact me at jrgraf [at] acm.org (replace [at] with @ and remove the spaces around the [at]).

    As a long time participant (but no longer) in the RI smallbore league, I wish all league shooters my best wishes. Competition is great, but the best part is spending time with folks of like minds and simply having fun. It’s not easy getting out the door at 6 PM at night in January but you’ll find it’s really worth it and it’ll make you a better shooter. Enjoy and stay safe.
