Welcome to This web-site will provide match descriptions, tutorials, and other information including match schedules and announcements on competitive rifle shooting in and near Arizona. The primary emphasis of this site is Conventional NRA Service Rifle & Highpower Rifle often called: " National Match Course", CMP matches, "Palma Match" and NRA & ISSF/Olympic Smallbore rifle & NRA & ISSF/Olympic Pistol Shooting. But I will add information of other shooting disciplines as it becomes available.

NOTICE: This website is now:
my old URL has been sold, without my permission, to a cybersquatting spammer

I would REALLY like to have match programs, Links, schedules, range directions, Photos etc, any additional information you may have regarding our sport. I will include as much as I can on this site, with Olympic,  NMC and Palma taking priority. Please send me any stuff you may have! The more .html-ized it is, the sooner I can add it to the page!

I will add links to related pages. I typically do not accept paid commercial advertisements. I maintain this web-site as a public-service of my own devising. It might complicate things if I were obligated to others. My out of pocket expenses for this site are less than I spend on tumbling media and resizing lube per year, and no-one could afford to pay me my hourly rate for the amount of effort I put into this. Contact me.

Oh, by the way, some people have written to as tho they were writing to a huge corporation, "Dear Sirs, ..." and all that..... Arizona Rifle shooting is ME, one guy, no business, no profit, no Java programmers, no office, no professional webmasters, no expenses other than the $100 or so a year hosting fee.... That's all. 

Hey! if you find this website useful, email me and let me know! I've had several people come up to me and say "oh, you're the guy with the web page"! I add new photos from time to time too!
