where is 'here' locally? In Payson, the Tonto Rim Sports Club holds, at their range south of town, a .22 rifle Metalic Silhouette on the 2nd Saturdays; an IPSC practical pistol matches on the first and third Saturdays; Cowboy action (3-gun) match on the third Sunday, along with both high-power and small-bore rifle matches...
Rio Salado range has a practical pistol match every Tuesday, and also, I believe, on the third Saturday of each month. There is Tuesday or Thursday evening steel match at Phoenix Rod and Gun club, also.
Just contact all of the ranges and clubs local to you, and see what they offer.
