The GUNS OF THE SOUTH event is a practical style competition providing a fun
opportunity to compete using the AK pattern rifle in a style that is typically
slanted towards modern AR style designs. This match is NOT intended to be a
tactics and doctrine based exercise, but a fun celebration of Mikhail Kalashnikov’s
rifle for the masses.
We find it unfortunate that there are so few competitive outlets for the hardcore
AK shooter in American shooting sports. As a result, we are launching the Guns of
the South, to engage our passions, practice our craft, enjoy the camaraderie of
our community with a match that is challenging and hopefully fun.
Stages in the match are designed to push the shooter and the platform to their
limits within the context of the practical application of force in historically and
theatrically themed recreations of epic battles and struggles through the ages.
We believe that this will be a fantastic opportunity to bring the most dedicated
enthusiasts together with the best manufacturers and retailers. We have
scheduled the competition such that all participants will have time to peruse a
large vendor area.
with the following divisions:
7.62 Limited, 7.62 Open, Small Bore Limited, Small Bore Open
