SMALLBORE RIFLE:
The term “smallbore” as applied to firearms
is universally defined as arms chambered
for the .22 long rifle cartridge. There are
many disciplines in small-bore rifle
competition. The STMTC conducts regular
conventional outdoor prone matches at our
Blackhawk range southwest of San Antonio.

The “Outdoor Conventional Prone” course
of fire is unlimited sighting shots and twenty
shots for record at 50 yards; unlimited
sighting shots and twenty shots for record
at 50 yards using a smaller target that
represents 50 meters; and unlimited
sighting shots and twenty shots for score
at 100 yards. The course is fired prone
using a shooting sling for support and rifles
equipped with metallic sights only, however at some larger matches ‘scope sights are
allowed in some events.

The “
Three Position” course of fire is a common and popular course of fire for intercollegiate
competition because it most closely follows the format for competitions in the Olympics. The
course of fire consists of unlimited sighting shots and twenty shots for score from the
standing position; unlimited sighting shots and twenty shots for score from the kneeling
position; and unlimited sighting shots and twenty shots for score from the prone position. All
firing is done at 50 yards and is fired on a very demanding international target.

Serious three position (3P) shooters must be in excellent physical condition, have good
eyesight, and be willing to invest in sophisticated rifles and other shooting gear. 3P matches
are conducted by STMTC concurrently with our conventional prone matches at the
Blackhawk range.
