UTAH TFL Members

The "Utah Chapter" of the FAL Files is planning a shoot next weekend. I figured since the "Utah Chapter" of TFL hasn't gotten together in a while, I would extend an invitation.

Zane,

Thanks for the heads up. I do not know if I'll be able to sneak out or not. I'm working at the gunshow on the 23rd and 24th, and I'm shooting in the 3 gun on the 30th. So my weekends for the rest of the month are full. I may be forced to do mundane things on that weekend.

By the way, you should come shoot 3 gun with us. It is a hoot.

Correia,

I decided a 3 gun match would be fun. The only problem is that I don't know anything about them. What I do know is that it takes, well, three guns. Yep, that's about it.

Where do I start learning about them? Where are the 3 gun matches around us? I'd like to start.

I can't hit the one on the 30th cause we'll be out of town, but I'd like to get started for next year.

Matt,

www.udpl.net has some basic info and a map to where we shoot. As well as a list of rules and such. All of our matches are at the FARM, and we shoot a 3 gun about once every 3 months.

If you have any questions PM me, and I'll see if I can't answer them. I'm the assistant match director for 3 gun so I figure I should theoretically maybe know something.

Seriously though, they are very fun matches. This next one is going to be 9 stages. Including an evil stage with a mover and a stage where you have to nail a steel target at 75 yards with your pistol. Should be lots of good fun.

I thought I'd post a shameless plug for an email discussion group for Utah shooters and gun enthusiasts
