2018 Magpul Governor's Match kicks off Saturday

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (KGWN) - The second annual Magpul Governor's Match, kicked off Saturday in Cheyenne.

The Governor's Match is a nationally recognized “multi-gun” competition and spectator event. Top athletes compete for thousands of dollars in prizes and recognition as the best.

“We have a strong firearms tradition in this country,” said Governor Mead. “In Wyoming we value hunting, shooting sports and those events that promote excellence and appreciation of these skills. The event highlights our heritage through elite level competition.”

The 2018 match features United Multi-Gun rules - allowing shooters to compete in traditional “3-gun”, “2-gun” or pistol caliber carbine divisions. The format allows new enthusiasts to be competitive while still challenging top tier shooters.

The Governor's Match ends Sunday and all events take place at Otto Road Shooting Range.
