CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Wyoming Governor Matt Mead is pleased to announce that Magpul Industries will be the title sponsor of the first annual Governor’s Match action shooting competition, to be held in Cheyenne, Wyoming August 3 - 6, 2017. The “Magpul Governors Match,” held at the Otto Road Shooting Range in Cheyenne, will bring shooters from throughout the United States to compete in challenging courses of fire. Competition Dynamics, the events promoter, describes the match as a “modern action two-gun match for semi-automatic rifles and handguns.”   

“Hunting, firearms and the shooting sports are part of the history, tradition and culture of Wyoming and the West,” said Governor Mead. “I am proud that we can host competitions like this in Wyoming – bringing these great athletes here to test themselves against each other and the event.”

The match will contain 8 action shooting “stages” - testing the speed and accuracy of competitors with both handguns and rifles. Each stage will be unique, with stage designers such as Navy Seal Commander Rorke Denver, Northern Red Training’s Scott Steiert, long-range specialist John Burns and the instructors from Magpul CORE.

“Access to shooting sports and shooting ranges increases public participation and benefits our sportsmen and our local communities,” said Governor Mead. “Participation and investment in the shooting sports is an investment in future generations of sportsmen and sportswomen.  It is good for Wyoming.”
