Ontelaunee Rod & Gun Club, Inc. 
is Hosting 4 Matches in 2023 for the
Modern American Rimfire Series

Excerpts from the MARS website  

The Modern American 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 Modern American 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.
