Rio Salado: Action Long-Gun Matches In March

Recommended Posts

Here are the practical long-gun events we have scheduled this month at Rio Salado (Mesa, AZ):


Black Rifle Match: Saturday March 2nd @ 9am
This is an action rifle match with targets from 1 yard to 400 yards. Any semi-auto military-type rifle should work well - most of us run an AR15 of some type. You do not need to bring a handgun or shotgun. Registration and squadding on the preceding Monday at 6pm via PractiScore (sorry, no walk-up entries on the day).


3-Gun Match: Saturday March 9th @ 7:00am
There will be four action shooting stages requiring rifle, pistol and/or shotgun, with targets anywhere from 1 yard to 550 yards. In preparation for SMM3G, our March match will only offer 3-Gun divisions (2-Gun will be back in April). Bring 150 rounds of rifle ammo, 50 shotgun birdshot (#6 or smaller), at least 6 00 buckshot and 4 shotgun slugs, and 50 rounds of pistol ammo. Registration and squadding on the preceding Monday at 6pm via the PractiScore (sorry, no walk-up entries on the day). After registering, the competitor will be able select from squads in one of two time slots: 7am-10:30am or 10:30am-2pm. New shooters should sign up for a 10:30am squad and come in time to attend the new shooter orientation at 10am before they shoot.


Tactical .22 Rifle Match: Tuesday March 12th and 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 Ruger10/22s. 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.


Superstition Mountain Mystery 3-Gun Match: Friday March 22nd-24th
This is the longest-running major 3-gun match in the Nation, and it filled up months ago. If you are interested in multigun, this is a great opportunity to see some of the best action shooters in the World wrestling with 11 challenging and exciting courses of fire. Spectators are welcome to watch the stages (eye and ear protection required) and to visit the large vendor exhibition hall.
