The main aim of UKBR22 is to provide a Benchrest score-shooting format to be enjoyed by the widest spectrum of Rimfire and Air Rifle shooters from both the Target and Sporting disciplines. Opportunities to compete will be provided for everyone from novice to expert, from Match Rifle to light Sporting gun in the specified Classes. As well as the able bodied, this is an ideal sport for those that find that prone target shooting is now difficult for various reasons. The sport as a whole is also ideal for disabled shooters and they are very welcome.
There is a small annual Fee to join UKBR22, but it is primarily an Association of Rimfire and Air Rifle Shooters run by the shooters themselves. Participants are required to be a member the organisation in order to compete in a UKBR22 competition, other than they must hold a Firearms Licence, as applicable, and be a Member of a Shooting Club that is HO approved, holding current Insurance for the weapons to be used.
