Shooting Competitions


Put your skills to the test at an action competitive shooting event.

Experienced marksmen and women will fit right in at one of our shooting competitions. Run and gun alongside some of the state’s finest competitors and see what you can do with the unique rule-set at our range in Anchorage. This is a great way to have fun and meet new people in our community.

At this stage, our events are one-gun only, but we plan to move into two-gun and three-gun events soon. This means rimfire handguns, centerfire handguns, rimfire rifles, and pistol-caliber carbines are suitable, but at this stage we don’t allow any bottle-necked cartridges or tubular magazines. We ask that handguns are holstered, or rimfires are cleared and cased, when they’re not in use. Long guns, regardless of chambering, should be cleared and chamber-flagged and/or cased when not in use.

Competition Shooting at Alaska Tactical – Saturday 21st May 2022 at 10am

Are you tired of expending expensive ammunition, but not feeling like you’re improving? Do you want to improve your ability to rapidly put hits on multiple targets, but you’re not sure how to proceed? Then this program is for you. 

Action shooting is for everyone. We all either enjoy shooting or simply know it is important to achieve, maintain and improve skill at arms. We have clinics and events that will challenge and encourage you to become the best shooter you can be. 

Some people are highly competitive, we get that! To those we say, come see if you can win first place. Most of us simply want to shoot interesting and challenging stages to become safer, more confident and competent. And perhaps mostly because it is fun.

Do you want to see how your skill compares to other shooters? Come join us and find out. 

Where Is Alaska Tactical? 

The Alaska Tactical range facility is located at mile 58.2 on the Glenn highway (just before getting to Sutton if coming from Anchorage/Palmer/Wasilla).  There will be an Alaska Tactical banner hanging at the turn off.  There is no other marker for the turn, people should proceed downhill on the dirt road to the parking area.  A search for "Alaska Tactical private range, Sutton" will give good results on most navigation systems.  It is a solid one-hour drive from Anchorage in good weather/traffic conditions.

When Is The Competition Taking Place?

Saturday 21st May 2022 at 10am.  The range will be open for people to arrive at 9am.

Cost Of Signing Up?

Cost for each participant for this first event will be $40/equipment division.


Rules And Regulations: 

You can download the full list of rules here:

The event will be a 2-Gun competition. Suitable firearms are .22 pistol, centerfire pistol (usually 9mm, 40S&W, 45ACP), .22 rifle, and Pistol-Caliber Carbine (PCC) [this is a rifle-type firearm that shoots pistol-caliber ammunition 9mm, 40S&W, 45 ACP]. 

Participants should bring one suitable pistol and one rifle/carbine. They can mix and match in any combination of ammo types. Participants should have a holster for their pistol.

Centerfire rifles using rifle-type ammunition (.223 Remington/5.56 NATO, 7.62x39, etc) are not allowed at this event. 

Note: This event is for experienced competition shooters. There is an expectation of competence. Shooters who want to participate but lack prior competition experience should contact us to attend a clinic designed to get them up to speed before signing up for a competition. Clinics are not yet scheduled, we will react to demand.  

The competition will take place over four stages, with the option of one or two extra "quickie" stages if time permits.

Each stage will require approximately 50 rounds of ammunition to complete* 

Shooters should bring enough ammunition for all four stages plus plenty extra for re-shoots (this happens when a stage must be re-shot for some reason other than shooter error) plus any extra stages if time permits.

The rule-set for Alaska Tactical competitions is unique.  Shooters must read and understand our rules before participating. Any shooter who has shot 2/3-Gun at Birchwood Recreation and Shooting Park (BRSP), USPSA, IDPA, etc will have no problem under our rules.

Please review the competition rules before your proceed.

“Two-day Conceal Carry class was attended by myself, my daughter, and friend. All of us at different comfort levels and experience with handguns. The staff was very professional, direct, and nice… I would highly recommend this organization for any training they offer.”

“I recently took the Level 1 Pistol class with my girlfriend, who was terrified of firearms, and it was an amazing experience. I can honestly say this class really reassured, corrected, and improved our fundamentals. I trained with Steve and Danny, amazing instructors…”

“Great class and an awesome experience. The instructors took time to work one-on-one with students and help fine-tune even them most minor details to get the most of every shot. I’m looking forward to an excuse to come to Anchorage again soon.”
