Savage Arms has upgraded its partnership with the Canadian Rimfire Precision Series (CRPS). The company’s Precision Series rifles are now the exclusive Firearm of the Rimfire Competition Academy, and Savage now stands as a platinum sponsor of the more than 20 CRPS competitions.

"The Canadian Rimfire Precision Series is proud to be working with Savage Arms on an expanded sponsorship for the 2022 season,” said Rick Katigbak of CRPS. “Their support of our newly announced Rimfire Competition Academy and Rimfire Nation Discovery days, allows us to bring Savage Arms' line of precision rimfire rifles to Canadians coast-to-coast to help them discover the joy of shooting. Savage Arms’ long history of producing rimfire rifles in Lakefield Ontario made them the logical choice as our primary rimfire rifle partner for the series. We look forward to the coming season and the opportunity to showcase Savage Arms at our events and competitions.”

CRPS was established in 2018 and hosts events across Canada that attract roughly 1,500 shooters annually. Distances during matches are a challenge for rimfire, anywhere from 50 to 300 meters. 

The organization’s new Competitor Academy is designed to further participation by providing detailed information new shooters need to know—everything from basic safety procedures, to zeroing, ballistics and more. By standardizing on the rimfire .22 LR cartridge for competitions, the organization ensures its events are fun, challenging and cost-effective, making them suitable for participants of all ages and experience levels.

“It’s an honor to work with CRPS for another season,” said Beth Shimanski, director of marketing at Savage Arms. “Our upgraded sponsorship not only allows us to showcase our rimfire rifles but gives us the opportunity to work with CRPS as they dedicate their efforts to opening up affordable shooting sports to everyone and that fits perfectly with our mission at Savage Arms.”

Your Go-To Move

When it comes to a self-defense situation, most shooters think “Well, I’ll just shoot him!” Others may consider their personal “go-to” move to be a martial arts technique such as a finger strike to the eyes, bare-knuckle punch to the throat or kick to the groin.
