    Wyoming matches?

    I'm moving for Arizona to Gillette Wy and was wondering if anyone know of any rifle or pistol matches in the area?

    But I did get a chuckle when I read the title.... sometimes down here those fire starters are hard to find.

    BPCR, Worland, Cheyenne,Ten Sleep. Cheyenne has organized matches for other disciplines. Appleseed events in Sheridan ( doesn’t get any better ) . If you look around you'll find something to suit your fancy.

    Lex,
    If you make it here by March 5th I'm instigating another Bottle Cap Match at the indoor range here. This is a 22rf rifle match modeled after the matches that started Depression era. Do a web search on Bottle Cap Matches - it's a real challenge and it's a different game. One of us came up with original rifle and gear, leading to one of us making some gear and rifles... The local indoor pistol range is where we shoot this and they've got to where they really appreciate us... I don't but they have a facebook page and I believe they have something up about it. The Range 307, Gillette, WY

    That sounds fun as heck Shutinlead and I’m not to far less than 100 miles unless the roads are crap . Might be something to get started over in Buffalo.

    Randy,
    I put a bug in the folk's ear in Sheridan just to get them involved and we had a couple from Moorcroft and Newcastle join us at the first official match. With a little prodding, I think we could breath life into an old discipline. It looks easy, just shoot a center... but the little jig puts everything in to perspective. Doesn't matter much about the rifle either, a fella with a souped up 10-22 shot as well as a Hubalek Ballard, a 52D, and a 40X. Join us the 5th and bring your best game.

    Wyoming has 3 great match's every June. Not to mention PD shooting.

    Wy-Shot in Gillette
    The MOA in Sundance
    HHG in Lancatster

    I'm sure there are a lot more.

    If you are moving to Gillette look up Ernie Bishop on Flying Circle Dr. in Gillette. You might as well start saving your money if you are a shooter and live in Gillette because those boys will help you spend it if you like to shoot.
