View Full Version : 1st Sunday Run and Gun Mariposa Fish and Game Range

11-07-2007, 2:50 PM
For those interested there is a monthly Run and Gun in Mariposa at the Fish and Game Range. It really varies on what the course is going to be. Minimum is three pistol of your choice (centerfire iron or optics) stages. The most we usually do is 3-Guns (rifle, pistol shotgun) in a total of five stages.

We start (BS'ing) promptly at 9:00AM and conduct a course walk around 9:30-10:00 time frame. Entry fee is $15.00 for non club members and $10 for members.
Some pictures from last Sundays event.

We also hold a Steel Challenge match each 2nd Sunday, combined centerfire and rimfire. If you have never done it before you need:
Gun (rim or center or both), holster, (5) mags and ~300 rounds.
Same time and fees for shooting Steel Challenge.

Sounds like fun. I've always wanted to try rimfire action shooting. Where is Mariposa?

The rimfire shooting is on the Steel Challenge only. We occasionally have a rimfire run and gun stage, but it's usually rifle rimfire and they don't come up too often. If you join the club the newsletter tells you what you need to bring to the next match.
You could come shoot Steel Challenge with a .22 pistol. ~300 rounds and you do not need a holster as .22 starts from a low ready rather than a holster draw.

Mariposa is just outside of Yosemite National Park on Hwy 49

The November 3gun match at West End Gun Club is slated to be rimfire pistols and rifles due the match being on thanksgiving weekend and the attendance probably being lower than normal.
