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.
  • Sporting clay courses cover many acres. You may want to bring your own “cart” or rent one onsite. 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.
  • At most of our event, 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!
