Guardian Long Range – South Dakota Event Information

The Guardian Long Range Competition is a full day precision shooting event that offers opportunities to test your skill with a rifle and compete for prizes and bragging rights. 100% of the proceeds of this competition will go toward Bethany Christian Services, America’s largest nonprofit organization caring for orphans and vulnerable children on five continents. Since 2014, the Guardian has raised over $750,000 for orphans and foster kids.

Day 1 (Friday)

This day will be a traditional Guardian format where you will shoot the match as an individual. Prizes for top shooters, and raffle prizes are awarded at the conclusion of the match. Shooters will be in squad of up to 12 shooters who will be engaging steel targets out to 1,200 yards. This year, we will feature pistol stages as well. Top 3 shooters will earn trophies, along with best shooter in LE/MIL, .308, and female categories.

Day 2 (Saturday)

At the conclusion of day 1, shooters will also be given their 2-man team assignments for day 2. These will be randomly assigned based on day 1 finishing with the highest scoring shooter being paired up with the lowest scoring shooter to shoot as a 2-man team, this pattern will continue through the entire roster until each shooter is paired up. This format will create parity, along with forcing shooters to quickly collaborate and a focus on effective communication and teamwork. The Course of Fire for the 2nd day will go through a similar course of fire as day 1, but shooting as a team. This year, we will feature pistol stages as well. Prizes will be awarded for most improved shooter, and top 2 teams.  Raffle table is open to the entire crowd where $5 raffle tickets earn you chances at winning amazing prizes from our sponsors.

Engagement Distances

Shooters will engage targets out to 1,000 yards. Target will be reactive steel targets, and a shot anywhere on the target’s plate will be counted as a hit. Exact distances and format will be provided to the shooters prior to the match.

Ammo Count

Rifle: Bring 140 rifle rounds for both days.


One of the unique benefits of this competition is that your donation is tax-deductible. Once Bethany Christian Services has received your payment, they will mail you a receipt that you can use for your tax deductions.
