New AR class added to BR Open Competitions

MAAC will be adding a new class during Bench Rest Open Competitions. Along with the current two classes AR PCP under 15ftlbs and AR PCP over 15ftlbs we will introduce the Spring air rifle class we will call Spring BR 20. This class will be introduced so that air gunners with spring air rifles will also have the opportunity to introduce themselves to Bench rest and compete. This is not an official ERABSF or WRBSF class. The basic core rules will be the same however the targets used are different more suitable for spring air rifles.
