Jeff Cooper Memorial Shoot
Gunsite has been and continues to be diligent with safety and health with the Corona Virus.
While we are able to follow CDC guidelines for our classes, we are challenged to be able to do so with an event such as the Cooper Memorial Shoot scheduled for May 24, 2020. We are adding a Pistol Range Day on May 24th for those who do not want to change their travel plans.
The Jeff and Janelle Cooper Memorial Shoot has been rescheduled
for Labor Day weekend on Sunday September 6, 2020.
We are adding a Pistol Range Day for Saturday September 5, 2020 for those who might be traveling to this memorial event and want a “tune-up.”
We regret having to do so, but as we try to be effective in maintaining health for the Gunsite family, this was a necessary change.
Please contact Rikki@gunsite.com if you wish to transfer your reservation to the new date, credit toward another class or a refund.
Thanks for your patience and understanding,
Jeff and Janelle’s 100th birthday is in May of 2020. In honor and celebration of this, and upon the suggestion of the late Jack Furr (former Gunsite Staff member), we will be hosting a one (1) day special match.
This match will feature some of the old Cooper courses of fire with the final sixteen or so finishers to shoot off in the famous “J Ladder.” (Details are still being sorted out.) While not a GAS Match sized event, we think it appropriate to recognize Jeff and Janelle’s 100th birthday on Memorial Day weekend with celebratory gunfire and family competition. The match will not exceed one hundred (100) shooters.
The Cooper 1911 Centennial Match will be a “retro” event. As Cooper would have liked…it is a single stack .45 ACP 1911 ONLY event. (No revolvers, Double Action auto-pistols (“Krunchentickers”), striker fired, extended magazines, wide bodied pistols, etc.) No whining! This is a Cooper event! If you wish to whine about only 1911’s, the complaint manager is Helen Waite. If you want to complain, go to Helen Waite.) Also, no red dot sights, race holsters, or extended magazines. Think about what Jeff Cooper would have worn and shot.
Awards will be presented by placing in the event. A special retro shirt and lunch is included.
There will be a separate contest for best “BBQ Rig.” It can be any gun, holster, etc. So, bring your best pistol, revolver, stocks, holsters and belts to be judged. Contest is solely based upon what we think looks the best.
Watch our social media and web page announcing when we will open the limited enrollments for this festive day. Some proceeds will benefit the Jeff Cooper Legacy Foundation.
