As of now we can shoot anything theres a mixed bag of shooters and guns hoping to get enough to get separate categories I know some of us want to shoot long range bolt and break open what are you into ?

I used to shoot IHMSA Field Pistol with T/Cs and Big Bore long range with revolvers and T/Cs. All were open sights. Still have most of my stuff (except for younger eyes).

I did shoot some NRA Hunter Pistol with a scoped BF too.

You can shoot open sights or scoped if we get enough guys to shoot we can eventually have separate categories for open versus scoped shooters for now I don't want to deter anyone from shooting. Do you live in the area ?

Half hour drive. What size targets: half-sized or full-sized?

Too bad they don't have a picture of the range back in 1971. It's changed quite a bit since then.

February 2nd - I believe I can make it if nothing new comes up. A couple more questions:

Are there any matts for shooting creedmore?

How many sets of targets per bank?


Thanks, I look forward to shooting steel again.

No mats so far all shooting has been off hand if your shooting long range break open or bolt I'm not sure the range is really conducive for that style of shooting as the targets get progressively higher ?

Is the February 2nd match still a go? I’m not a football fan, but lots of folks are and the SuperBowl starts at 4:30....

I don't see any listing on the Rio Salado calendar for pistol silhouette. Are you still shooting matches on the first Sunday of the month?

There are a couple of guys in the Phoenix area that could help you start shooting IHMSA matches. If there is any interest my email is in my profile and I can put you in touch with IHMSA and those that could help.

Sorry for not responding sooner but we are not shooting this match any longer to my disappointment between low turn out and issues in dealing with the range I no longer have these and I'm not sure if there are any plans to continue thanks for the interest though.
