from 250.00

Traditional Guardian Long Range match hosted at Gomez Ranch in Bloomfield, NM on March 20-21, 2021.

General Guardian Match Format

Traditional Guardian matches follow a modest tempo match with minimal breaks between stages. The course of fire often cover disciplines from across law enforcement, military and practical marksman spectrums. Event capacity varies per location, but fill up very quickly!

The competition format varies based on the host facility, but usually require anywhere from 80 to 250 rounds to complete several stages over a single day or multiple days. The course is caliber restricted to 300 Win Mag and below to preserve the steel targets. See examples below of what our matches are like.

About the Match


The Guardian Long Range Competition is a full day precision shooting event that offers opportunities to test your skill with a rifle and compete for prizes and bragging rights.


Roster is limited to 100 shooters, that will be spread across several squads. You will get a link to squad a few weeks before the match.

Match Discipline

This long range rifle match will have a hybrid theme; part tactical, and part “hearth and home.” The match layout is what we call the “Guardian” genre. Stages will range between battlefield simulations, and survival scenarios which call for a long range rifle shooting skill set. Shooters will be on time restrictions specific to each stage, and realistic stress-inducing shooting positions will be employed.

Engagement Distances

Shooters will engage targets out to 1000 yards. Target will be reactive steel targets, and a shot anywhere on the target’s plate will be counted as a hit. Some shooters will qualify for bonus targets, but more will be explained about this stage on match day.

Ammo Count

Bring 150 rounds to be on the safe side. You will not likely need that much, but it’s never a bad idea to have some extra ammo on hand. The better shooters will use a minimal amount of shots to successfully complete each stage. The fewer shots you fire, the better your score will be.
