The 12th Annual MOA "Cold Turkey"
Long Range Handgun Match
June 21, 22, 23rd, 2018

        MOA Corporation has held an Annual Long Range Handgun Match since 2007. Unique within the industry, the MOA Shoot joins many of the nation's Specialty Handgun enthusiasts in a 3 day Match Competition occurring in Sundance, Wyoming. Shooting at 500, 750 and 1,000 yards, these handgunners routinely prove that they are equal to many rifle shooters. Typically encountered guns are the MOA Maximum (of course!), Freedom Arm's New Singleshot, and the Remington XP-100, Savage Striker, as well as numerous custom and semi-custom rigs, most with a 14" to 18" barrel, and usually equipped with a muzzle brake. Cartridges often encountered are the .243AI Win., 6x47 Lapua, 6mm-284, and 6.5-284 Win., etc. While many shooters use pistol scopes, more have in recent years moved to "rifle" scopes, taking advantage of higher magnification, and improved optics to realize their pistol's full potential.

        The shoot is casual and friendly...many of your fellow shooters will help to ensure you have a positive experience; most share the reasons for their success openly and unselfishly. Every year the equipment list used by shooters improves somewhat; and unlike some other disciplines, rare is the shooter in Sundance who isn't happy to tell you all about his new rig. Indeed, it's all about the advancement of the sport! We have found that many first timers are apprehensive shooting at these distances, but they soon find they can shoot amazingly small groups, even at the advanced yardages!
