Rio Salado: Action Long-Gun Matches In May

Recommended Posts

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


Black Rifle Match: Saturday May 4th @ 7am
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).


Multigun (2-Gun/3-Gun) Match: Saturday May 11th @ 7:00am
This month we will be offfering 2-Gun divisions only - you can leave your shotgun at home. There will be four action shooting stages, each requiring rifle and pistol, with targets anywhere from 1 yard to 550 yards. Bring 200 rounds of rifle ammo and 100 rounds of pistol ammo. Registration and squadding on the preceding Monday at 6pm via 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 May 14th and 28th @ 4pm
Registration opens at 4pm, with first shots shortly thereafter. Location is the Smallbore Range. 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.


Tactical Shotgun and Pistol Caliber Carbine Match: Thursday May 16th @ 3pm
Registration opens at 3pm, 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, Stealth, 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). You can register via PractiScore, but - being unsquadded - we also accept walk-up entries for this match.


Red Mountain Action Rifle Match: Sunday May 19th @ 10am
This is a rifle-only match comprising four run-n-gun stages. All targets are at CQB distances, maximum 60 yards. There are several equipment divisions meaning almost any kind of semi-auto rifle setup can find  home. Bring 150 rounds of ammo. Pre-registration and squadding opens at 6pm on the preceding Monday via PractiScore.
