Wyoming Governor Matt Mead is pleased to announce the second annual Magpul Governors Match, August 4-5th in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The Wyoming Office of Outdoor Recreation along with match director Strategic Match Designs (SMD) will bring a fun, festival atmosphere to the Governors Match - a nationally recognized “multi-gun” competition and spectator event. At the event, top athletes will 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 celebrate firearms, hunting and shooting sports culture. This event allows us to highlight that heritage and watch elite level competition.”

The 2018 match will feature 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 rubbing shoulders with the top shooters in the world.

“We listened to competitors and talked with Governor Mead to develop our plans,” said Charles Sole of Strategic Match Designs. “We’re excited to be working with this team, the firearms industry and the competitive shooting community to build a fair and exciting event. Shooters want a fast paced, fun and friendly competition. We’re going to give them that and more,” added Strategic Match Designs’ Rob Romero.

“This event will be great for shooters, spectators and their families,” said Domenic Bravo, Director of the Wyoming Office of Outdoor Recreation. “We are going to make sure this is a fun, festival atmosphere for everyone involved”.

The Governors Match will take place on August 4th-5th, 2018, at Otto Road Shooting Range in Cheyenne, Wyoming. For more information, go to:
