Fourth annual Magpul Wyoming Governor’s Match scheduled in Cody July 31-August 2

WYOMING — The fourth annual Magpul Wyoming Governor’s Match, presented by Vortex Optics, will be held July 31 through August 2 in Cody, Wyoming, at the Cody Shooting Complex.  The Wyoming Office of Outdoor Recreation is bringing the nationally recognized “multi-gun” competition back to Wyoming.

“Here in Wyoming, we cherish our right to own firearms and deeply respect what this means,” said Governor Mark Gordon. “Our Second Amendment, responsible and safe firearm ownership and a true love of the outdoors all combine at events such as this and provide an excellent showcase for the rest of the world.”

This 12-stage multi-gun match will feature highly skilled participants from around the country.  “Three Gun” competitions like the Governor’s match requires shooters to hit a series of targets at varying ranges with three different weapons as quickly as possible. They are scored based on time and accuracy.

“Wyoming is fortunate to be able to host this national-level competition with such highly skilled participants,” said Chris Floyd, Manager of the Wyoming Office of Outdoor Recreation. “It also provides us with another opportunity to show off our state’s spectacular outdoor opportunities, while also boosting the regional economy with additional recreation and tourism dollars.”

Event organizers have taken appropriate measures to protect participants and attendees against COVID-19, and virtually all of the activities will take place outdoors. Participation has been capped as well this year to coincide with public health orders.
