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

Rio Black Rifle Match: Saturday December 2nd @ 9:30am
This is a new run-n-gun action rifle match with targets from 1 yard to 500 yards. The accuracy challenges tend to be a bit more demanding than at a typical 3-Gun match, so bring your A-Game. Any semi-auto military-type rifle in an INTERMEDIATE caliber (sorry, no .308 etc.) will work well - most of us run an AR15 of some type. You do not need to bring a handgun or shotgun. If you consider yourself a competent rifleman, come and lay it on the line, but be prepared to check your ego at the door. Pre-registration and squadding is already open at the Practiscore website.

3-Gun/2-Gun (Multi-Gun) Match: Saturday December 9th @ 7am
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 10am-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 and squadding opens at 6pm on the preceding Monday 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 75-100 shooters, your odds of winning something nice are pretty good.

Tactical .22 Rifle Match: Tuesday December 12th & 26th @ 4pm
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.

Red Mountain Action Rifle Match: Sunday December 17th @ 11am
This is a rifle-only match comprising four run-n-gun stages. All targets are at CQB ranges, maximum 60 yards. The equipment divisions accommodate iron and optical sights, rimfire rifle, centerfire rifle and pistol caliber carbine. Bring 150 rounds of ammo. Pre-registration and squadding opens at 6pm on the preceding Monday at the Practiscore website.

Tactical Shotgun and Pistol Caliber Carbine Match: Thursday December 21st @ 4pm
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 pistol caliber carbine (Optic and Iron). Any tactical shotgun will work well in this match, or you can shoot a pistol caliber carbine (minimum caliber = 9mm, maximum velocity = 1600fps). Scoring is done on paper, so pre-registration is NOT required.

Time-Plus Pistol Match: Saturday December 30th @ 7am
Not a long-gun match, but it is being run by the 3-Gun Division and under Time-Plus rules so I am posting it here. This is a handgun-only match comprising five run-n-gun stages. The conduct and scoring rules will be regular IMA-SMM3G, but all USPSA handgun divisions will be recognized so there will be a division for just about anyone. Minimum caliber is 9mm, and you must have a safe and secure holster. The stage round count will be high, and the pace of the stages will be fast. Bring 250 rounds of ammo. Pre-registration and squadding opens at 6pm on the preceding Monday at the Practiscore website.

Last Blast Rifle Match: Sunday December 31st @ 7am
This is a rifle-only match comprising five run-n-gun stages with targets from 1 to 150 yards. The conduct and scoring rules will be regular IMA-SMM3G, but without equipment divisions... everyone shoots heads-up. Centerfire rifles only, minimum caliber is 5.45mm, and PCCs should be viable for this match. Bring 250 rounds of ammo. Pre-registration and squadding opens at 6pm on the preceding Monday at the Practiscore website.


As you can see, we have lots of extra chances to shoot this month... now is a great time to shake off the Thanksgiving lethargy and get some match experience under your belt.
