Here are the practical long-gun events we have scheduled this month at Rio Salado:

3-Gun/2-Gun (Multi-Gun) Match: Saturday August 12th
We are now using fixed squads. We hope this will mean competitors can shoot the match in less time, but it does require that they pre-register on PractiScore. After registering, the competitor will be able select from squads in one of two time slots: 7am-10am or 10am-1pm. New shooters should sign up for a 10-1pm squad, and come in time to attend the New Shooter Orientation at 9:30am before they shoot.

There will be four stages requiring rifle, pistol and/or shotgun, with targets anywhere from 1 yard to 550 yards. We offer 3-Gun (rifle/pistol/shotgun) and 2-Gun (rifle/pistol) divisions. Those in the 3-Gun divisions should bring 150 rounds of rifle ammo, 50 shotgun birdshot (#6 or smaller), and 50 rounds of pistol ammo. Those in the 2-Gun divisions should bring 150 rounds of rifle ammo and 150 rounds of pistol ammo. Pre-registration opens at 3pm on the preceding Tuesday at the Practiscore website.

We are fortunate to have four very generous sponsors for our monthly match: Carbon Arms provides "loaner" shotshell caddies for competitors to try, and they donate a $100 gift certificate. VLTOR donates two of their excellent AR15 rifle stock kits. LUTH-AR send us one of their fine MBA-series rifle stocks. KE Arms provides a gift certificate each month. All prizes are distributed by random draw from the list of competitor who finish the match. With typical attendance around 75 shooters, your odds of winning something nice are pretty good.

Tactical .22 Rifle Match: Tuesday August 8th & 22nd
Registration opens at 4pm, with first shots shortly thereafter. Location is the Smallbore Range right behind the Activity Center. The rules are simple: Targets are reactive steel - shoot them per the stage briefing, fastest combined time (+penalties for misses) wins. Pretty much any .22 rimfire rifle is OK - the most popular guns are AR15-clones and Ruger 10/22s. We have two divisions: iron sight and optical sight. Now that .22 ammo is more available, this is a match you won't want to miss. Scoring is done on paper, so pre-registration is NOT required.

Tactical Shotgun and Pistol Caliber Carbine Match: Thursday August 17th
Registration opens at 4pm, with a new shooter orientation shortly thereafter. The match format is four practical scenario-based stages similar to what you would encounter at a 3-Gun match, except that you only need to bring one gun - you choose either shotgun or pistol caliber carbine. There will be separate divisions for shotgun (Open, Limited and Pump) and centerfire carbine (Optic and Iron). Any tactical shotgun suitable for 3-gun competition will work well in this match, or you can shoot a pistol caliber carbine (straight walled pistol calibers only please). Scoring is done on paper, so pre-registration is NOT required.

Red Mountain Action Rifle Match: Sunday August 20th
Registration opens at 12:30pm. This is a rifle-only match run over the same course of fire as the morning pistol match; four run-n-gun stages, maximum 60 yards. The equipment divisions accommodate iron and optical sights, rimfire rifle, centerfire rifle and pistol caliber carbine. Bring 150 rounds of ammo.

Coming Soon: "Rio Black Rifle"
Lastly, we are pleased to announce a brand new rifle-only match called RIO BLACK RIFLE. This will be a run-n-gun action rifle match with targets from 1 yard to 300+ yards. It should be a lot of fun, and a great way to get into action shooting with a gun you already have. The first match will be on Saturday September 2nd. I will post more details as they become available... mark your calendar.
