I have acquired 2 Ruger Precision Rimfire rifles that I will be bringing up Vegas.  I'm still working on the outdoor shooting range arrangements.  They have 100 yard ranges so these rifles are perfect for range.  Between now and then, I will equip them and zero them at 50 yards at my indoor range here in San Diego.  That way, you shooters can see what they do at 100 yards and compensate for the difference between 50 yards and 100 yards.  Best score wins a handshake. Maybe a beer. Or a carnival stuffed animal.  Could be just a dog biscuit.  

That is if I can confirm arrangements with the range.  I still have to work out transportation, which will obviously be the most expensive part.

Just for clarification......  These rifles will be set up and equipped like a military sniper rifle, just scaled down to .22LR caliber.  

It'll be fun!

Thanks!  I took it out to the range.  Sighted it in at 25 yards so I can establish DOPE.  This thing is freakishly accurate.  And the barrel isn't broke in yet.  At 12 rounds, I had it zeroed and everything after that was dead on.  Had to stop because my wife wanted to shoot it and then we left the range before I could DOPE it to 50 and then 100 yards.  BUT I will do that to BOTH of the rifles before I bring them up for the Reunion.  I'm still working details, but I foresee transportation to the Range in Boulder City to be problematic [frown]

That is an incredible looking rifle! It is beautiful. Do you have a good case to protect it?

Thanks! She is a wonderful rifle and a ton of fun to shoot.  Yes. I bought a few Plano hard cases from MidwayUSA with the soft foam inside.  I use them to transport my rifles, including the full-sized version of this little girl here.  Very sturdy and very safe.  I wouldn't put them in a cargo hold of an aircraft, but they are perfect for superior protection to and from the range.  One with a rifle in it fell off the tailgate of my pick up to a concrete driveway.  Didn't hurt the rifle or optics (they still held zero), or the case itself, other than a scratch.
