Mid Atlantic Rimfire SeriesOntelaunee Rod & Gun Club, Inc. 
is Hosting 4 Matches in 2021 for the
Mid Atlantic Rimfire Series

“A Free Night At The Range”
Was Held on
Tuesday April 27th – 4:00pm to Sunset

The Ontelaunee MARS 22 Rimfire program has gotten many inquires from new and seasoned shooters who are interested in finding out more information about this “New Match” being held at the club this season.  In response to these inquiries, the program hosted a free night at the range for those interested in joining us to learn more and or maybe just see it in person; we also invited interested shooters to bring with them their personal 22LR equipment, to be reviewed by program volunteers and the option to even try a stage.  Both Jr shooters and Adults were encouraged to come out for the night at the range.   The night was well received and attended by over 20 shooters and we look forward to hosting it again next pre-season.  There are still 2 more matches this season to be held on July 17th and September 5th. 

Exerts from the MARS website  

The Mid Atlantic Rimfire Series “MARS is designed to give back to the firearms community by providing: affordable, competitive outlets for practical style rimfire enthusiasts; practice opportunities for precision centerfire competitors; and accessible, beginner friendly options for new and junior shooters.”

Additionally, competitors are NOT required to join the MARS Series to compete in a match, though it is encouraged to support the program; new shooters and veteran shooters wishing to know more and experience this sport are encouraged to come out to a match for fun and get a feel for the sport.  Does not matter if you are competitive, that comes with time, the important part is to meet others and enjoy your day at the range sharing in a challenging shooting discipline that requires less than 110 rounds of ammunition to compete in a match.        

For those of you wishing to join the Series, “The Mid Atlantic Rimfire Series (MARS) is a year long cumulative points competition for practical 22LR precision rifle shooters. MARS’s goal is to promote the shooting sports and defend the 2nd Amendment.
