Match Description

Welcome to the Tuesday .22 Tactical match! It is held on the 2nd and the 4th Tuesday of every month on the Small Bore Range at Rio Salado Sportsman Club.  Currently, there are only two divisions:  iron sights and scope.  Only bolt action and semi-automatics are allowed.   Bring at least two magazines (capable for total of 50 rounds), but 3 magazines are recommended.  Eye and ear protection is mandatory.  You will shoot four challenging stages of steel and reactive targets.  A stage may require 2-3 runs, keeping all runs or keeping the best 1 or 2.   One stage will require movement with targets at medium distance.  One stage will be stationary with targets at medium distance.  One Stage will be stationary with targets at short distance.  One will be long range stage (up to 100yds) and require multiple positions.  Read each stage carefully and not rely solely on what others tell you.  Required round count total will be between 120-140 rounds.  This match is run with Tuesday Night Steel and Rifle/Shotgun rules in mind.
