Three gun matches!

We had one of our rare ones. I could have done better but what fun. I also should learn to count. Got a penalty for not having downloaded a mag to 10! I had had 12. See - normally I keep the AR mags at 2 below. So I had a 20, I thought was 18 and took out 8 to get to 10. OOPS! A penalty.

But shooting a Glock, a Winchester 1300 Defender and my AR - nice day!

Mike Webb puts on great matches in central TX.

Zombie Match

Several of the guys I use to work with got together to have a three gun Zombie Match recently. Three stages- 1st stage was handgun, 7 targets 7yds to 15yds, with one mandatory reload, 45 seconds, Revolvers min. 38 cal., pistols 9mm, 2nd stage Shotgun, 7 targets 15yds to 25yds, one mandatory reload, 45 seconds, 12 ga. 00 buck or slugs, Pump, Double or Semi, 3rd stage Rifle, 11 targets, 25yds to 50yds,one mandatory reload, 60 seconds, .223, 308, 7.62x39, Pistol cal allowed 9mm and up.
Headshots only with only one counted per target. 10 pts per target.
A lot of fun.
Our range officer won with a Colt Python, Mossburg pump and a Armalite AR

Three gun is fun.

It's like running with sissors, only with guns instead.

I enjoy 3 gun events. My favorite are the outlaw events. I find them to be more fun and less "THE RULES SAY THIS" type mentality.

Too bad the ATF doesn't consider 3 gun "sporting."

Yeah, we were talking about sporting purpose. Luckily no one had a Saiga as I would have been horrified by it's evil automatic appearance. Why it might even look like my 30 round mag AR?

Wonder if someone could just buy the plans and make Saigas here. Shouldn't be hard.

In 410 - Taurus could make them and called them the Raging Commisar - ducking now!

Jake,

I live in NW Ohio and there are more events to shoot than I can phsically attend.

These are the three that pop in my mind right away:
http://www.ucoa-findlay.com/Sporting_Events.html
http://www.mi3gun.com
The intro to 3 gun shoot on the April 16? would be a GREAT way to get your feet wet!

And more of a carbine shoot/class:
http://www.scsclub.org/index%20black...%20carbine.htm


All the best,

RJ

Try cowboy action shooting-EVERY match is a three gun match (four guns if you count the second revolver)!
