Hi, my name is Mike and I have been involved in the competitive shooting sports for over 30 years. I never reached the pinnacle of any of these sports by winning a national championship primarily because I was one of those people, probably like you, that had a family to raise along with other responsibilities - so I had to work. In spite of my complete commitment to my family, I was able to squeeze a little money and time for shooting whenever I could. I have won my share of trophies and have traveled regionally to compete many times.
I am a certified NRA instructor and RSO at my local range and still shoot competitively at the amatuer level in many disciplines and enjoy every second of it. Now with the kids grown and out of the house, I have more time to pursue my passion and have decided to build this website - Rimfire Shooter - which is intended to pass the knowledge and enjoyment I have gained along the way to others who share the same passion.
In Rimfire Shooter you will find information and articles intended to help you become better at whatever discipline becomes your favorite. If you are like me you will enjoy them all. From metallic silhouette, know your limits, practical precision rifle matches, shooting long range rimfire, rimfire pistol to rimfire hunting and many others, you will find information on building your skills, tuning that rifle or pistol to perform better, how to hit what you are shooting at, recommended gear to help you improve, or just how to compete and win the new shooting game that everyone is excited about.

After all isn't that what the shooting sports are all about? Join your friends and get on the rimfire shooter's train. The ride starts here.
