2020 Run `n Gun `n the Sun - Course of Fire

NO steel-core ammo allowed on the course.

All out-of-state participants (Okies) will be required to wear full-face coverings at all times, especially while running.

Saturday night banquet will be On-Site.

Porta-johns will be available.

Camping is allowed Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.

Bring shade. There is no shade other than what you bring.

Bring Water. There is NO potable water at the Ranch.

The course is approximately 6 (maybe a little longer/Larry's best guess) miles long this year. Water crossing depends on rain.


Pistols may be carried loaded at all times on and off the course, so long as the pistol is holstered. Rifles will only be loaded on the command of a range officer. Rifles will be cleared in and out of each shooting station. A safety violation (coming into a station with a rifle with a loaded magazine inserted or a round in the chamber) will result in your being asked to leave.

Make Ready” — at ranges requiring use of the rifle, you will be given the command to “Make Ready.” This applies to your rifle, and NOTHING else. It is not a free rest period, and it is not the place to admin your gear, your mags, or anything else. “Make Ready,” means load your rifle, and nothing else. Your ear protection should already be on, your pistol should have already been prepped, and your gear is whatever it is. Take care of your administrative tasks BEFORE you enter a range.

Moving with a loaded rifle — On some ranges you will need to move with a loaded rifle. It is a requirement that you put your rifle on safe before you begin your movement from a firing position. So, before you start to rise from whatever position you managed to contort yourself into, thumb the thing to safe.

Moving with a drawn pistol — On some ranges you will need to move with your pistol in your hand, which of course, is loaded. Some pistols don’t have safeties. Don’t be stupid. Use the safety it has one. Keep the thing safe and pointed down range.

Time — Maximum time allowed at each shooting stage is 2 minutes.

Shooting aids — No shooting sticks, bipods and other shooting supports are allowed save what nature (Larry) provides within the shooting areas.

Targets will be shot from left to right on all stages unless you are told differently.
