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

Rio Black Rifle Match: Saturday February 3rd @ 9:00am
This is an 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. Pre-registration and squadding at the Practiscore website.

3-Gun/2-Gun (Multi-Gun) Match: Saturday February 10th @ 7am
There will be four run-n-gun courses of fire 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. 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.

We are fortunate to have four very generous sponsors for our monthly match: 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 two gift certificates. Timney provides a trigger of the winner's choice. 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 February 13th & 27th @ 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.

That's it for this month - the rest of the matches are cancelled due to the Western States Single Stack Championship.
