“We could not be happier with how well the 2022 Rocky Mountain Airgun Challange went…” stated Justin Jacobsen, owner of Utah Airguns. “ When we started the Rocky Mountain Airgun Challange in 2018, our goal was to create a match format that would easily allow crossover by traditional firearms shooters into the competitive airgun world. RMAC was the first match to feature a precision rifle-style competition. This, along with working with the Nation Rifle League to create an airgun class within the ever-growing NRL22 series has brought hundreds of skilled shooters into the airgun space. This has led directly to RMAC becoming the largest airgun competition in the world. We would like to thank our sponsors, attendees, and shooters for making the 2022 Rocky Mountain Airgun Challenge the best yet. We will continue to work to make RMAC the most attended shooting event in the US.”
