Independence Day Action Rifle Match
Mesa, AZ (Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club) 7-4-2008

Cavalry Arms is running the Independence Day Action Rifle match to benefit the Arizona Citizen’s Defense League again this year. AZCDL is a very pro-active pro-freedom organization that has accomplished a great deal with little resources over the past several years. They are well worthy of our support, and that is why all proceeds from the match will go to them. Rio Salado Sportsman's Club is graciously hosting the match and had allowed us full access to their facilities.

This is an action style match with time + penalties scoring (lowest time overall wins). Those of you who shoot 3 gun will be used to the format. Penalties for No-Shoots and Un-hit targets have been upped to emphasize accuracy. We also score Intermediate Rifle cartridges and Battle Rifle Cartridges differently. Intermediate Rifle Cartridges (.223, 7.62x39mm, etc) require two hits anywhere or one A zone to neutralize, Battle Rifle Cartridges (7.62mm NATO, .30-06, 8mm Mauser, .303 British, etc.) need two hits anywhere or one C zone or better to neutralize.

Full rules here.


Classic: Any firearm or copy of a design made in 1945 or before. All feeding devices and sighting devices must be of the correct time period too. Classic Division shooters may bayonet the targets (please don't tear them in half) if the course design lends itself to doing so.

They're only taking the first 80 applications, so hurry it in! Yeah, it'll probably be as hot as blazes, but it's rifle only -- no lugging all that two-gun or three-gun gear. And it's at Rio Salado (Ussery Mountain), so you'll be banging the reactive steel at the longer ranges.
