Well, actually i know there are such leagues or competitions. So lemme rephrase: what are some of the competition/sanctioned leagues for AR shooters? I was thinking about joining USPSA and I know USPSA has rifle and shotgun divisions, but here in Kansas City, rifle and shotgun competitions only occur once or twice a year here under USPSA––it's primarily pistol shooting matches here when it comes to USPSA.

So what's all out there for shooting rifles in a competitive sport?

Visit the KS and MO hometown forums and ask about 3-gun matches. Many local clubs run 'outlaw' matches that are not USPSA or IMA affiliated, but often use similar (albeit lax) rules.

I'd have to imagine that someone within an hour or so of KC is running 3-gun.

Are you interested in Service Rifle competition, or just 'action' sports?

IDPA has just adopted Multi-Gun:

I wish there were a lot more rifle-only competitions but they are few and far between.

IDPA multigun looks to be a joke based on my first reading of the rules. 5.45 is banned... with .22LR is ok?

US Tactical Rifle is what my local range runs. The director noted that his rules are based directly off USPSA rules with permission.

There should be local highpower matches in your area.

NRA Highpower.


After having a nearly identical question a year ago I finally settled on CMP Highpower. There you have the opportunity to join the ranks of the Distinguished Rifleman. NRA Highpower is nearly identical in course of fire, and is typically fired the day before a CMP match, but they have no DR badge (well they have something similar now but that's another story).
They do have classifications (Expert, Master, High Master, etc.) that you can acheive (and fall out of, while DR is forever )



eta:

Equipment list and tips from the Army Marksmanship Unit: http://www.odcmp.com/USAMU/Shooting_Tips.htm
The one purchase I recommend above all else is: Mind Over Matter DVD set. It goes into equipment, position and thought process for a full course of fire.

If the link doesn’t work off the bat create an account (free), login, and then click on it again.

Almost all highpower shooters shoot both NRA Highpower AND leg matches (CMP). Leg matches are far more rare in most areas of the country and not always combined with a large NRA match.
