RCSA Rimfire Challenge


The RCSA (Rimfire Challenge Shooting Association) is a .22 rifle and pistol program created to introduce new people to the shooting sports and provide a pathway to shooting competition. The RCSA Rimfire Challenge can provide individuals or families with a fun and exciting first-time competitive shooting experience.

The RCSA Rimfire Challenge was developed with safety in mind. Shooters are required to compete using a rifle and handgun from any manufacturer in .22 Long Rifle caliber. The targets are steel plates that are set in a course of fire that is no less than 5 plates and no more than 7 plates. The course of fire is designed to be completed by even the most inexperienced shooter using one 10-round magazine without the need to reload "on the clock." Steel plates were chosen as the targets because they are easy to buy or build, and because this type of target provides the shooter with immediate visual and audio feedback.

A unique feature of the RCSA Rimfire Challenge is that experienced participants are encouraged to help new and novice shooters move up to the next level of proficiency by sharing their tips and shooting knowledge. Matches emphasize the friendly, supportive aspects of target shooting and competition. This lowkey competition should remind participants that the shooting sports are lifetime activities that are fun and affordable for men, women and youth.
