Central Coast Rimfire's focus is the timed action shooting of handguns and rifles chambered for .22LR rimfire.  We especially welcome those new to firearms and the shooting sports! We meet on the Sunday following the 4th Saturday of the month at the Hogue Action Pistol Range located on the grounds of SLOSA shooting complex.  Gates open at 11:45, registration begins at noon with the match beginning at 12:30 pm.  
Most matches consist of 6 stages (3 handgun, 3 long gun), with each stage containing 4-8 targets.  We shoot each stage 4 or 5 times (currently 4 due to ammo shortage.)  That equates to about 200 rounds maximum plus any misses.  Though our matches are timed, they are also friendly and fun with firearms safety and education being our top priorities.  The targeting isn't over-the-top either.  You can do it!  Come on out and join us!
Competition Divisions:

1.) "Open" which allows optics and red dot sights, along with muzzle brakes, compensators and/or porting.
2.) "Limited" which allows iron sights only, along with muzzle brakes, compensators and/or porting.
