Honestly, I've been interested in 3gun for a while, but with another baby on the way I've given up hoping that I will have the time and energy for it.

The 2 peices of advice that I've garnered from asking REAL competitors are:

1) Shooter > Gear. In other words, the best gear will not make a marginal shooter any better or faster. The biggest improvements you can make (as a beginner) is with software changes (not hardware). Translation: Practice practice practice, practice practice etc etc.

2) First timers, bring what you got, practice with it, make changes as you need it. Once you get serious, get serious gear. Don't go out and buy what you think will make you a better shooter. Go to competitions, learn the stages and optimize your gear for the stages you shoot. You will make compromises, you will constantly try new gear out. It will save you money and headaches by taking your time.

BTW have you checked out the Stag 3g? I think its an awesome deal for what you get, and should be a good starting point for a competition gun.

I'm really wondering how YHM got on your list.
Because i trained with the yhm8100 and it felt great. It was light wieght, accurate and my trainer said it was a good rifle to go with

Two things about it I have a problem with, Carbine length quad rail and lack of a compensator. You don't want a quad rail, it will chew up your hand. You want a longer length handguard so your support hand can be closer to the muzzle. You want a compensator to help with your muzzle control, so you can get faster follow up shots and better times.

I was going to change out the handguard with a troy, change the flash hider to a xompwnsator and put a 3 lb timney trigger kit in it

Good Ideas, but doesn't that bring your total build to about $1400+450ish, about $1800? ish? Don't forget you will have to get a new gas block and a front sight. about another $150. $1950 to $2g.

For $2g you can have a much better rifle with much better components. I'd recommend building it over buying.

hrm....how about this one.....

ar15performance.com
16" lightweight 1x8 Wylde chamber 5R rifled melonited
The website is down but IIRC it was going for under $200.

I'd go for 1x8 twist, 1x7 isn't need in competition.

I purchased this one and love it. I ended up with the 14.5 and a pinned comp. They have the 16" i/s .. I know a lot of people on here arent but I am a big fan of YHM products, everything I have has been awesome quality IMO
