Default 3 Gun

I'm beginning to become fascinated with 3 gun competition and would like to become involved, although, I'm not sure if there are any 3 gun matches in my area.

Are there any 3 gun shooters on this forum? If so, what are your thoughts about 3 gun and maybe you could fill me in on the scoring. From what I can tell it must be a timed event with seconds deducted but I'm probably wrong.

I saw a video clip on a 3 gun jungle run that looked way cool. This looks like something I could do on my hunting lease during the off season. Now all I would have to do is find someone to shoot against.

Basic scoring is like USPSA or IDPA. Joe, if you start something like this, I may have to visit WI.

This may not help with rules and scoring, but if you get the Versus channel, there's a show called "3-Gun Nation" that just started (three episodes so far). You might enjoy watching that.

Thanks, I caught part of that the other day and that's what sparked my interest. I mean what more could you ask for? 3 Gun IMHO has it all.

Here's a link to a video called The Jungle Run. This makes the competition more interesting as you are also hang'n out in the woods, although it appears more dangerous than the sanctioned events. Not good to run with loaded firearms IMHO.Yahoo.

I hope everybody has their DVR set for the upcoming 3 Gun Nation show on the Versus channel! This is going to be the best thing on TV.

The first shows air on Monday July 26th at 7:30AM ET, Thursday July 29th 3:00PM ET and then every week in the same slots.

I know the crew filmed me during one of my runs at the FNH match. Hopefully I did something good or bad enough to get my 5 minutes of fame.

Here are a couple of links to get your interest up.

Check it out!

Be sure to email the Versus channel and thank them for covering the shooting sports.

I have been shooting a bunch of 3 gun. Here are some videso of my shooting sports.

There are a bunchof different rules in 3 gun as well as scoring systems. The best bet to learn more is to go over to Brian Enos forums and read the stuff on their 3 gun threads. The USPSA also has a lot of information.
