    Default Pueblo Tactical Rifle

    Steel Core/jacket ammo is NOT allowed. Leave it at home. If a magnet sticks to it, it is a no-go. The **ONLY** exception is the annual AK vs AR match in Sept. Steel cased ammo is fine anytime.

    Here is what is planned for the Pueblo Rifle Matches from now on. Some minor changes, lots of the same. All below info is current as of 2017.

    I am the MD (again) and Justin is the Assistant Match Director. Charlene, Chris, Curtis, and Craig have all stepped up to help us out and make the matches happen. Without these guys, Oct 2008 would have been the last Pueblo Rifle Match. The IPSC club is still the main club at the range. Like my match staff, without Lizard, it could not and would not happen. Please be sure to say thanks to all of them.

    In a nutshell the three stage format of Long Range, Medium Range and Eddies Standards or V-TAC Standards will be shot. Open, Tactical, Limited and He-Man are the divisions.

    $15 per gun match fee.

    Fourth Sundays, March thru Oct.

    Pueblo West Sportsmans Assn
    600 East Loma Drive
    Pueblo West CO 81007

    The gate code to get in the range is not published. Contact me via PM ahead of time to get the gate code.

    We start setting things up around 7:00, shooters meeting around 9:30 and we start shooting no later than 10:00. We can always use help with set-up. We can not and will not do it alone.

    Time plus scoring will be used. When it comes to paper targets, Deltas do not count and a single Alpha or Bravo (head shot) hit counts as two. Look for a little more paper now and again, but it will all be close up stuff. No paper past 35-50 yards. Again, D hits on paper don’t count and are misses. Two hits anywhere else or a single Alpha or Bravo is good.

    Round counts will be no more than 30-ish per stage. Total minimum round count should not exceed 100. The shooting will still be hard, so bring extra ammo. Most bring 200 rounds and take plenty home.

    Divisions are Limited, Tactical, He-man, Duty and Open.

    Limited. Iron sights or a non magnified dot.

    Tactical. One scope.

    He-Man. Any Tactical or Limited rifle in 308 or 30-06.

    Open. Multiple scopes and Bi-pods allowed. Anything goes pretty much.

    Steel Core ammo is NOT allowed. Leave it at home. If a magnet sticks to it, it is a no-go. The **ONLY** exception is the annual AK vs AR match in Sept.

    Eddies standards will still be 75 seconds, fixed time, on reactive steel targets. 5 shots prone at 200 yards. 5 shots other than prone (kneel, sit, squat) at 175 yards. 5 shots standing at 150 yards. The fourth string (150 yards) will be all three positions with mandatory reloads between each, just like now. However slings, bi-pods, mono-podding, ect are allowed in sitting and prone. Standing is still done the old fashioned way.

    V-TAC Standards will be a VTAC Wall or two and a single steel target at 150-ish yards. Your time per string is totaled and added up. Misses add to your total time.

    The medium range stage will be on the Silhouette Berm with the longest shot being about 200 meters. Most shots will be 150-175 yards. Plan on an occasional Texas Star or Dueling Tree.

    The 300 yard berm will be used for the long range stage. It will have more shooting positions but fewer targets downrange. This will hopefully make things easier on the spotters, RO and the shooter.

    The Sept match is the annual AK vs AR match. This match is the ONLY match where steel core bullets are allowed. All other matches, it is specifically not allowed. If a magnet sticks to the bullet, leave it at home.

    Every once in a while there may be a bolt gun side match or a rimfire side match.

    Most of us have known each other for a long time and are friends. We tend to have fun and joke around while not shooting. If you are a delicate type and are easily offended by playful banter between friends, be warned... Slack is on the next berm, and you can not get there from here.

    Justin and I are open to suggestions. After all, it is your match. You pay the match fee. We just set it up.

    Lastly, thanks to Eddie, Vicki, Jeff and Tom for keeping it going these past years.

    See you there.

    To all:

    These matches, especially the AK vs.AR match are great learning aids-I have seen the good AK drivers smash the AR platform-I know there are more AK dudes out there that are afraid to shoot, and they should have no reason not to come out to these and have a good time.

    In the past the targets have been move inside 300 yards.

    Most people get wrapped up in being in a competition setting vs. having fun and just shooting.

    Have a somewhat good zero on that AK and do some quality shooting.

    Rationing ammo should be done on planning on shooting these matches vs. waiting for Armageddon.

    Thanks Hoser, Chris and Justin for putting on a great match.

    I got some good schooling.........

    -29 not 30 rounds for reloads

    -AR mags do not go in bottom first

    -Mag release is on the right - bolt release on the left

    -Elbow and knee pads are a good thing

    -Having all your ligaments removed would help to get into the necessary contorted positions

    -It's a lot harder than it looks

    -Practice is not crazy talk

    Thanks again guys!

    Here are some pictures from the last match. Shot 22s for a few hours while the 4H shooters wrapped up.
