Yeah, both USPSA and IDPA, originally established as pistol-only sports, offer 3-gun or multigun; the distinction is that 3-gun utilizes the three gun types, but always separately, while multi-gun will have transitions among the different types. I shot a multi-gun stage in which you put all three guns on a table in front of you, and you had to transition from one gun to the next after each target engagement.
My IDPA club will often have a shotgun or rifle "side stage", conducted and scored separately from the pistol match, but allowing those who want to do so, to employ their long guns in a practical way, with the movement, reloading, etc., used in the pistol match.
