The nice thing about silhouette shooting is the ability to take just about any .22 rimfire, air rifle or reasonably tame high power rifle out and compete. This allows just about anyone with a small assortment of rifles to find one that will likely fit within the rules of the sport.

I’ll not be posting the entire rule book of the NRA on this site but they are available here ..

For your first time out you will be welcome with anything even if it does not conform to the rules. Many match directors use good discretion in what to allow to make sure fun is had by all. So long as you are not shooting anything that may damage targets you should be all set.

More sections will be forthcoming detailing equipment used and favored in this sport as well as the more technical aspects to consider when trying to improve.
