THE MODERN WYOMING "SADDLE GUN" MATCH
A MODERN ACTION 2-GUN MATCH IN CHEYENNE WY
"The carbine was the traditional `saddle gun' of the west. Originating in
the Civil and Indian wars, the historic lever action rifle was a quick
handling, light, fast firing rifle with high magazine capacity - a role now
filed by modern semi-automatic rifles."
Wyoming Governor Matt Mead came to us with the idea to run a "Big Match" in 2017 in order to promote excellence in the shooting sports and to showcase Wyoming's own firearms industry.
We are pleased to be able to bring you the 2017 MAGPUL Wyoming Governor's Match, an individual multi-gun match for a modern semi-automatic rifle and modern service pistol. An AR-15 and a Glock or SIG are perfect for this match.
Stages will be action-oriented "3-Gun-Style Stages",
we are only shooting rifle and pistol -- no shotgun.
This is an "Outlaw" match.

A little more than two months from now, Competition Dynamics will be administering one of the biggest action shooting events in the state of Wyoming to date.
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.

Since the MGM has a bunch of new-to-action-shooting competitors, we’re going to flesh out some commonly asked questions and answers.
How does scoring work?
Each stage will be scored “time plus penalties”. Time plus penalties means you take your raw time, add the seconds prescribed by the briefing packet per penalty type for each penalty incurred to get your net stage time. The fastest net time per division gets 100 stage points, everyone else gets a fraction of that based on his time divided into their time.
What are penalties?
Penalties include: failure to neutralize (FTN), un-hit, no-shoot, and procedural. FTN’s are +5 seconds, the rest are all +20 seconds, each occurance.
What hits are required on a paper target to neutralize?
Unless otherwise briefed, paper targets will require 1 A zone, 2 C zone or better, or 4 D zone to neutralize.
What is the penalty for Failure to Engage (FTE) ?
There is no separate FTE penalty. An FTE’d target would fall under UNHIT.
This match will have three divisions that will be scored completely separately:
OPEN pistol, OPEN rifle.
LIMITED pistol, OPEN rifle.
LIMITED pistol, LIMITED rifle.
OPEN rifles may have any number of optics and any muzzle device.
OPEN pistols may have optics and ports/compensators.
LIMITED pistols follow the USPSA definition (ie, no optics, no comp/ports).
LIMITED rifles may not have any optics - iron sights only.
PISTOLS must be 9x19 minimum.
RIFLES must be 5.45mm / .223 / 5.56 minimum.
