Western Region Championship

Quail Creek Airgun Club will be hosting a USARB sanctioned championship March 25-27, 2022 in Sahuarita, Arizona.

Competition will consist of five rifle classes, Light Varmint, Heavy Varmint, USA Open (three core classes), in addition to Unlimited and Spring Piston. Medals will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place finishes in each class. Trophy and cash prize will be awarded to highest aggregate score of the three ‘core’ classes.

The event will be limited to 40 competitors. A registration form and detailed information will be found, by December 1st, on club website qcagc.com.

Scoring Plug Program

USARB has initiated a program to distribute two custom scoring plugs free of charge to sanctioned clubs that request them. The intent is to make tools available that we believe will promote better scoring practices and reliable outcomes.
