Helpful Information

Who can shoot at the Texas Ranger Classic?

The Texas Ranger Classic is an open event for all shooters from the novice to the professional – men, women, and youths. Our highly sought after champion buckles are awarded to team champions and High Over All winners.

What equipment do I need?

Because the sport is popular with a wide variety of shotgun enthusiasts, the shotguns used do not fit an exact standard; however, every shotgun used for sporting clays must be capable of shooting two cartridges of 12 gauge or smaller. The most popular shotgun configurations are over-and-under, semiautomatic, and pump-action, using traditional cartridge shot sizes of 9, 8, or 7.5. 

Safety is an important part of sporting clays. Proper ear and eye protection are mandatory, and firearms safety procedures, as listed in the National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA) Rule Book, must be followed at all times while on a course.

Are there any tips I should be aware of?

  • You’ll need to bring your own ammunition to the event. Make sure to bring enough to cover 100 birds, and any warm-up games you intend to shoot in.
  • The course at Mi Ranchito Sporting Clays covers many acres. You may want to bring your own ATV, etc. This will help you keep up the pace of the shoot, and haul all of your gear.
  • No alcoholic beverages will be allowed prior to the shooting event. Water and sodas will be provided throughout the shoot.
  • Lunch will be served after the shoot – and adult refreshments will be provided at this time.
  • Our raffle items are amazing! We hope you enjoy the selection and participate with gusto!

TOURNAMENT PRIZE BUCKLES

Tournament buckles are awarded in the following categories:

  • HOA CHAMPION
  • RUNNER-UP HOA CHAMPION
  • WOMAN'S HOA CHAMPION
  • YOUTH HOA CHAMPION
  • FIRST PLACE TEAM

TEAM FLURRY COMPETITION
What’s a Flurry? This exciting and fun side-game will get your adrenaline flowing! Your team of 4 shooters occupies a station that has four shooting “booths”. You will ALL be shooting at the clays at the same time! Four machines will launch clays at quick intervals - you decide who’s taking the shots!

About Company "D"

Company “D” encompasses a wide swathe of South Texas that covers 640 miles of the Texas/Mexico border and 21 international border crossings. The region extends from Val Verde and Edwards Counties to the north, stretching south along the Rio Grande River to Cameron and Willacy Counties at the Gulf of Mexico, then North along the gulf coast to Corpus Christi encompassing twenty-seven counties total. Major Brian Burzynski and his 27 Rangers proudly continue the Company “D” tradition of keeping South Texans safe and secure.

The duties of the Texas Rangers have changed very little in the almost 200 years of Ranger service to the State of Texas. Modern-day Rangers conduct criminal and public corruption investigations, apprehend wanted felons, suppress major disturbances, respond to and investigate acts of terrorism, and render assistance to local law enforcement in suppressing crime and violence. Since 1935, the organization has been a division of the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The ever-increasing population of South Texas and vibrant economy in parts of this region has brought with it an increased level of criminal activity attempting to prey on the region’s success. This, coupled with contemporary issues of transnational organized crime and terrorism, places Company “D” personnel on the front lines of Texas’ homeland security efforts. In addition to the traditional criminal investigative functions of the Texas Rangers, Company “D” Rangers collaborate with law enforcement partners to strengthen border security, provide a safe community, and a secure trade corridor.

In the fall of 2017, Company “D” Rangers responded to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. During this catastrophic event, Rangers led rescue and recovery efforts in severely affected areas of East Texas. Company “D” Rangers continue to serve local agencies as a resource for investigative assistance by fielding and investigating allegations of crime, corruption and border violence.

Through it all, Company “D” Rangers continue to remain steadfast - ready to defend Texas and advocate for victims of crime and violence.
