Here is a little History on the Mini-Palma Matches and course of fire for the day.

 

Palma Competition Matches began in 1876 and Included Prone Shooting out to 1000 yards. It has always been an International Sport, with National Teams shooting around the world for a Perpetual Trophy. The Matches stopped at the outbreak of WW2 and didn't begin again until Canada revived them 1966.


Mini-Palma Matches were created by the NRA to simulate shooting Palma with Smallbore (.22 rimfire) rifles at 100 yards.


Itasca Gun Club is now running Mini Palma Matches in 2022.


I WILL RUN TWO MATCH TIMES. MATCH #1 @ 3:00 PM AND THE 2nd MATCH TIME @ 5:30pm.  YOU ARE WELCOME TO PARTICIPATE IN BOTH MATCHES OR JUST ONE. COME ON OUT AND HAVE SOME FUN!!


Rules


100 Yard Prone Position shooting at reduced targets to simulate 800-900-1000 yards.  Rifles are limited to .22 rimfire caliber due to the size of the scoring rings.

Sorry no scopes (just spotting scopes)….Iron Sights Only...


We have added the option to the Mini Palma Match of Benchrest. As Benchrest is not an official position for Palma, but it gives everyone another

opportunity to shoot 800-900-1000 yards..
