I just got into it after pulling my head out of my butt.

3gun is a lot of fun. Usually 4 stages 1 for each weapon system: shotgun, semi auto rifle, and handgun. Then a stage where all 3 firearms are used.

I gotta see if there are some of those here in sunny Florida. That looks like a blast.

Heres a stage w/ all 3. My pistol skills are week and I have a bad habit of adjusting my grip after every shot and looking at where my rounds hit but the video gives you the idea.

http://youtu.be/xv9sKduutQY
The other range has a better 3gun but its almost 2 hours away and really cuts into the time w/ my son so I haven't gone back.

They have a car (rolling chassis) that they use in some stages. The one I went to you started out sitting, pistol holstered, round chambered. At the beep you exited the vehicle shooting through the window (rolled down) then peeled off to retrieve your shotgun and engaged targets from across the hood. After those targets were nuetralized you took your AR from the rear seat ran to cover around 20ft away and engaged the last set of targets. It was a blast and had a slight feel of realism.

Man, I like that video.
The rolling chassis routine sounds really good.

Looks great, nice additions to an already highly reliable and maneuveable weapon!

I don't think it's an SBR. I think it's a 14.5 with a pinned BC 1.5.

Fred is correct. I would like to SBR something but I just don't have the patience.
