Get out and shoot your Black Rifle


Run and gun rifle match at the Pueblo West Sportsman's Association range on the 4th Sunday of every month.

-Match fee is only $15.
-Set up starts around 6:30am
-Shooters meeting and walk through is at 9:45am
-We generally shoot 3 to 4 different stages (a majority of the targets are steel targets).
-Targets from point blank range out to 425 yards.

Don't be intimidated by competition, it's a great time, and you are not competing against anyone but yourself. This match is an awesome venue to sharpen old skills and learn new skills, not to mention it's a lot of fun.

Directions to the range:


From Colorado Springs (Southbound I-25)

-South bound on I-25 to Exit #108

-Exit on #108, at the end of the off ramp take a right onto Purcell

-Travel 4.2 miles on Purcell to Platteville Rd, and turn right onto Platteville Rd.

-Travel 2.4 miles on Platteville Rd to Cashmire Ave

-Turn Right on Cashmere ave and take the second road left to the range (Loma Ave). There are green / white signs once your reach Cashmere ave directing you to the range


Pics from last week's match.....first match of the season.....(4th Sunday of every month at the Pueblo West Sportsmans Association range):

Targets that you'll typically see at ranges from 50 yards out to around 400 yards (along with LaRue targets, steel pepper poppers, 10" round gongs, etc):

Talking about guns on the internet is not going to improve your shooting skills or teach you the pros and cons of your rifle / carbine and the optics and accessories you have mounted on it.



**Disclaimer: I'm not affiliated with the guys that put these matches on and don't make a dime off any of these matches. I post this information in an attempt to get guys off the internet and involved in quality trigger time and the shooting sports.**




Hope to see some of you at next month's match!




(Thanks to Hozer and the rest of the guys for all the effort they put into these matches!!!)

Hmmm I have had Sundays off lately.... It's a bit of a drive from here but it looks like fun! I'll have to convince the lady that I need a magnifier for my EoTech first. That way I'll actually be able to hit targets at 400yds. It would be a nice change from all the close range stuff we do at work.

Great thread Jeff! It has given me some inspiration to help get my local range up to date with some run and gun targets so we can play too. I am going to see if the boss will let me commandeer some steel at work so I can get started. I have been thinking about it for a while now but this is the push I needed......Thanks!

Minimum round count is under 100. Most guys go through 130-150. Bring 200-250 and you will be fine.

No match in June, scheduling conflict with the range. However there is a Sniper match this Saturday.

Just got this via email (match this coming Sunday):


This Sunday there will be yet another rifle match in Pueblo. We will be sticking with the 3 stage format of one long range (400 yards) stage, one medium range (300 yards) stage and of course the dreaded standards.

In addition to all that Justin has talked me into a rimfire side match. We might as well put all that Sportsmans Team Challenge steel to use... Plan on 2-6 inch plates out to 125 yards and maybe some bonus 1 inch plates at 50 or so yards. There will be 3 divisions. Tactical using 10 round mags. Open using 10 round plus mags and Manual Operated using whatever capacity mags/tubes you want. Optics allowed in any division. No 22 mags or 17 anything. Just good old fashioned 22 long rifle. No hyper velocity ammo like Stingers/Yellow Jackets/Velicitors ect. High velocity ammo is fine. So dust off that 10/22 or AR-15 conversion and come play.

Dont forget Sept is the annual AK vs AR match.

Good luck to everyone that is headed to DPMS.

We are going to be short on set-up help *again* this month, so please try to come out early. Hope to see you guys Sunday.

-Hoser

If you're refering to my post, I do go shoot. Quite often actually. The only ranges that I know of around here are bench shooting only though.

You don't have to have optics to shoot the match. There was a shooter at last months match using a 14.5" Noveske N4 carbine with iron sights.

If there is a target you can't hit or you can't see, just holler out "MOVING ON" and the range safety officer will know that you are skiping that target.

Optics help you see the target better.

There are no prizes, no ego, no one makes fun of or looks down on new shooters.

Each match is an opportunity to come out and learn something about yourself as a shooter, your gun, and the accessories you have mounted on that gun.

Annual AK vs. AR Match - This Sunday!!!

Got the following via email:

Everything is set to go for this Sundays match.

-If you are shooting an AK and an AR, it is two matches for one price.

-Steel core and all that commie junk ammo is fine for just this match and only this match. Dont bring this ammo to any of the other rifle matches, please...

-Set-up starts around 7:00 and the match will start around 10:00. Hope to see you this weekend.


Unfortunatley I'll be in a 2 day LMS Defense Carbine course on range #2 on Sunday, so I'll miss this match. Hope you guys have a good time, and I hope someone takes pics!!!

I just spoke with Lizard (he lives right by the range) and the match is a go.

Pueblo didnt get any rain or snow today and the wind howled. It should be plenty dry.

Just realized I missed this question. Sorry I'm 10 months late.

SBR's don't have an issue as long as the shooter is good to go and he has optic with adequate magnification and knows his hold overs. I shoot at the gong at 425 yards with my SBR on a regular basis. Shorter barrels aren't less accurate, they just produce less velocity, and the rounds drop off a little quicker, so knowing your hold overs at longer distances is the main concern when shooting distance with a SBR.
