The Magpul Governor’s Match, will take place August 3rd-6th 2017 at the Otto Road Range, 10 minutes from Cheyenne, Wyoming. This event will be a 2-gun format: pistol and carbine (ie, semi-automatic rifle). The stages will be scenario based “run and gun” type shooting.

Governor Mead will be present and onsite for this event. With many other local agencies involved, it promises to be “the event of the summer” with all the stops pulled out. With this event the state is promoting shooting sports within the Wyoming, and is making a huge push to get shooters, as well as shooting industry types more involved within the state.

Notable generous local Gold sponsors for this event include, Magpul, Thunder Beast Arms, Gunwerks, and Hi Viz Sight Systems. These sponsors are thriving in Wyoming and are supporting the event in massive way. Plus there are many other sponsors involved in supporting and sponsoring the event along the Colorado front range as well.
