3 Gun Started out as a Tactical combat type training deal with the old soldier of fortune matches back in the 80's. now its a nationally televised fast paced game with guns. It's all about shooting fast and accurate with cutting edge guns and gear.

If you're looking for firearms training that is bette Learned in a tactical class. What the action shooting sports like 3 gun, IDPA or USPSA will teach you is firearms manipulation under the stress that a timed competitive situation puts you in.

The LEO/MIL types I know that play the gun games all agree that competition makes you a better marksman which helps in real world situations.

Give it a try. You won't be disappointed!

I would love to shoot 3-gun but I can't find any competitions near my city. Therefore, I haven't invested in a Shotgun or AR-15 with which to compete.

Same boat. Louisville, Kentucky is a pretty big city with very rural outlying counties, yet the only place I can find that holds 3-gun competitions is almost 2 hours away in Lexington. Sucks.

Here the most comprehensive 3 gun match listing I have seen.

http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_13_1/322_3_Gun_Match_Listings_by_State.html

Driving 1-2 hours to get to a match is not uncommon. Me and 2-3 buddy's load up once or twice a month to carpool almost 2 hours to catch nearby 3 gun matches.

In this area even ranges that have a nice facility for a 3 gun match don't have that many events. Oxford is 33 miles. Oxford was the site of the 2012 IDPA national championship matches. They don't have a 3 gun event on their abbreviated calender. Two other ranges are around 50 miles from here. None of them have any 3 gun events on their calendars. IMO, a 3 gun event will be hard to fill until deer season closes on Jan. 1.

A good friend in SC wants to do 3 Gun, but alas, there is not one single match in his state. Some states are more active than others. From what I have seen of the building of matches out here, you have to take the initiative and get it started, then others follow you lead, and pretty soon you have a bunch of matches.

I have two clubs for 3gun/uspsa, but both are 90 miles away. I haven't been to a match since April, still healing from a tractor rollover last May. I'll be ready to run'ngun again by spring. I'll try to get some pics of my weaponry posted this weekend.

Tanfoglio elite limited .40,

Saiga 12 completely rebuilt by me

Custom ar, yhm lower, jard trigger, bbl built to my specs, nikon m223 2-8, and bushnell trs25 on offset mount.

I could make a list of a bunch of guns i have, or "have", or wish I had. Why would one feel compelled to provide that infornation freely? Do you feel the need to show off? Is it some immature game of oneupsmanship?

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?
