    Why are they not allowed? Doesn't make much sense to me. The .22 LR Rimfire guys are shooting slugs…  Things that make you go hmmm…

    and in BenchRest comps neither! guess to make it more fair to all (airgunners) like using double bottles… donno but slugs should be permitted!

    The PB boys probably have to get past the facts of how good PCP's are so keeping them in pellet mode soothes their discomfort.   Start easy and get them to admit two PCP classes one with pellets and one with slugs.   Soon they will think it is their own idea to simplify and just put slug guns in with the 22PB's.    Strange how easy it is when it's their idea and they can brag about how smart they are.  My .02$

    Right.  It would be like saying you can’t use Eley or other match ammo.    I’ve seen too many competitions ruined by too many rules.  I’ve also seen some cheating . 

    A happy medium is about impossible to achieve especially if money is involved .

    I think the airgun division is experimental, no?? I wonder if the NRL will discontinue it if there isn't much attendance?

    You'd have the pellet shooters crying that slugs are allowed. Yep, then there would have to be two classes, one allowing pellets, and one for slugs.

    You can always shoot slugs for the fun of it and not compete in any division, the score won't count officially but it'd be neat to try against the rimfires. 

    Judging by the slight attendance in our NRL22 threads here on AGN there might be 5 guys competing across the whole country???

    I know at least 3 or 4 guys that would compete, but we're in the San Diego area, and there's nothing within about a 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive…  ;(

    Yeah, we had a NRL22 match local to me but the MD stopped doing them, rats!

    The next closest I have to drive an hour and 15 minutes which isn't too bad. I've been wanting to go to it for the last 4 months but something else seems to be happening on that weekend.

    Should be able to go this month and I'm going to ask the MD if I can shoot both rimfire and PCP.

    I shoot in 3 different NRL events across the state.  I have yet to see a single air rifle (other than my own, which I only used once, then switched to 22 rimfire afterwards).

    Unless numbers pick up, I'm not sure they'll continue to carry and support the air class.

    But yes, a person who shoots every event all by themselves could easily use slugs and I doubt any of the rimfire shooters would ever care, if they even knew the difference.

    No, there doesn't seem to be much of a following for AG's in NRL22. 

    I'll keep playing with my FX Impact in stages inside 100Y after the match I go to which has half the stages out to 208Y. 

    As long as I could equal or outgroup my Anschutz 22rf, along with getting .2+BC slug going 1000fps, I'd be all in using a PCP against the rimfires and maybe eventually win a match. Now that would be COOOOOOL!
