Precision rimfire competitions often include moving from obstacle to obstacle to shoot, according to Shooting Sports USA.

A carbine is a compact, typically semiautomatic short-barreled rifle with a magazine capable of holding 30 or more rounds, according to the Ammunition to Go website.

Each competition night opens at 6 p.m. for registration followed by a safety brief at 6:20 p.m.
