Here is an invitation to come out and join a fairly new affordable adventure in the .22lr shooting community “Vortex Rimfire Race Guns”!It is a .22lr event, because it is fairly new there will even be loaners to give it a try if you don’t have a .22lr but bring what you got just see where you can enter, be it pistol or rifle or both!!

If you are curious of what this is have a look at this video (this is related to the course of fire for Kamloops August 31, 2020).
