Shooting Sports Remain Popular in Sidney

Sidney's Shooting Park, as well as a few other locations in the Cheyenne County area, are busy with shooters competing in all different events and disciplines. On the first weekend of each month, Defensive Pistol Matches are held at the range. Following the USPSA level 1 match format, shooters complete four or five stages, shooting 80 to 100 rounds.
