    USPSA/IPSC Rimfire Division?

    Now that USPSA has bought out Steel Challenge, do you think there will be a rimfire division in USPSA?

    I think it would open up the competition to many more shooters, invite more juniors into the sport, and bring the competition more mainstream.

    I also think they should drop the man silohuettes in favor of a large bullseye...

    IDPA stays the course as a defensive scenario contest... but USPSA/IPSC is a LONG way from IDPA at this point...

    Opinions?

    I'm not a hard-core competition shooter, but I dabble in things from time to time. I agree that a Rimfire Division might be a good idea; I can see it drawing in folks who might not otherwise compete, due to cost or other factors. Heck, the way ammo prices are skyrocketing, it could become the most popular type of competition within 2-4 years!

    Cheaper guns, light recoil, less noise, and easy on the ammo budget; where do I sign-up?

    I'd be down for a rimfire division. Like DJ said with ammo prices going up it would be a lot easier on the pocket book. Around here its $6 for a hundred rounds of .22 compared to $30 for 100 rounds of .45acp.

    The introduction of the rimfire division to steel challenge doubled entries, and really drove youth particpation.

    Great for the sport, and public acceptance.

    I don't think that .22's would work in USPSA. I don't think that they could take down the steel poppers that we use. They are usually set so that a 9mm can take them down. If there were just paper targets it would be OK.
    Steel Challenge is different in that the targets do not have to fall and it is just the sound on the Stop Plate that ends the timing.
