Mi 3gun April Classes and Match Info

Mi 3Gun April Schedule

Welcome back everyone. This year we are starting out with an Introduction to 3Gun and a Range Officer’s Class on Saturday April 18th. At Livingston Gun Club, located at 2440 Hunter Rd, Brighton, MI 48116.

Our Club level RO class will begin at 9:00am, breaks for lunch at noon, and goes until about 3:00pm. We will cover safety rules, range commands, scoring, clearing multiple firearms and making the range safe. Our working RO’s shoot monthly matches free. They also participate in an annual staff reward program which includes a random drawing for guns, ammo, equipment, accessories and more. You can also qualify to shoot the Championship match in September free. Bring your guns, gear and about 50 rounds of Rifle and Pistol ammo and 25 rounds of Shotgun ammo (# 6-8 birdshot). There is no charge for this class.

Our Introduction to 3Gun class will start at 12:00noon and go until about 3:00pm. It will cover safety rules, range commands, scoring, equipment and gear. Then you’ll get a chance to shoot 1 or 2 stages. Samples of gear and guns will be available. If you don’t have all 3 guns, let us know, you can borrow what you need. Bring what you have just as if you were going to a match. Bring a minimum of 30 rounds of Rifle and Pistol ammo and 12 rounds of Shotgun ammo (# 6-8 birdshot). There is no charge for this class.

Monthly matches – We have a lot of new ideas in the works this year, culminating in September with a bigger and better Championship Match. Due to the increase cost of prop items, triggers and stage effects, we have to increase the monthly match fee to $25.00 this year. We encourage and invite anyone to become involved with our program. If you help set up and break the match down or RO the match, you shoot free. You can also qualify to shoot the Championship Match free.

We are trying the Pre-Registration thing this year. We look forward to seeing each of you at the classes, monthly and Championship Matches. Make sure you get signed up at our web site and pre-register for either Class, our Sunday April 19th Monthly Match and our September 20th Championship Match.
Let us know if you can help out with the program this year.

Thank You,

Mi 3gun

Due to the overwhelming response, we are going to open the class up for more shooters. This is how we are going to handle this. We will extend the limit to 40. The class starts at 12:00 noon on April 18th. All 40 will participate in the classroom portion; the first available 20 that signed up (or how much time we have) will get a chance to shoot 1 or 2 practice stages. Even if you don’t get a chance to shoot, you can watch and see how it is done. During the class we will cover safety, range commands, rules & scoring. Then divisions, guns and equipment will be discussed. We thought it might help those who are interested a chance to see what’s going on before they got to the match. This class is not required to shoot the monthly match.

We are Happy to announce a new Pistol Caliber Carbine Division this year. We have set this up to be a fun, shoot what you got division. All you need is a PCC, a shotgun and maybe a handgun as a backup. Unlimited magazine capacity in your PCC and handgun. Load em up and shoot em. Your PCC can be used on any and all targets that are safe to engage.
This year we are doing the pre-registration thing. Please sign up at the Mi 3gun web site. Indicate if you can help set-up, RO the match, or need to convey any special requests.

Next week, we will have details for the Classes and Match.
Make sure you are signed up on the Mi 3gun email list.

Thanks,

If you are going to attend the Range Officers Class, be there ready to go at 9:00am, bring your Guns, Gear and about 30 rounds each of Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun ammo. Meet at the Learning Center. Leave All Firearms – UNLOADED AND BAGGED in Vehicles.

If you are going to attend the Introduction to 3Gun Class, be ready to go at 12:00noon, bring your Guns, Gear and about 20 rounds each of Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun ammo. Meet at the Learning Center. Leave All Firearms – UNLOADED AND BAGGED in Vehicles. For those that need to borrow a Shotgun or Rifle, contact me at brymer@mi3gun.com

If you are going to attend the 3Gun Match, Leave All Firearms – UNLOADED AND BAGGED in Vehicles. Until you sign in at the Learning Center.

You might want to practice your different shooting positions. You’ll be engaging targets on the move, breaching doors and locks on gates. Rolling up on scene in our Squad Car and dealing with crowd control, sniping threat targets and hoping our Helicopter stays in flight while engaging threats on the ground. Bring your dark shooting gear; you’ll have to save the good guys in a dark building. Once you enter the facility you will need a light mounted on your rifle or pistol to determine good from evil - a hand held will be available for those using a handgun if you don’t have one.
Sign-in starts after 8:00 am
RO walk through at 9:00 am
Shooter’s meeting at 9:45 am
Shooting begins at 10:00 am
You’ll have to remember from last year,
Some stages you will select which and how to use your guns
Our philosophy is to establish a problem solving scenario
These are your tools – You solve the problem
We have 6 Multi-Gun Stages this Month
The total round count for the match is a Minimum of 132 rounds – if you don’t miss
Here are the individual maximum targets available for each gun
Rifle – 78 rounds
Pistol – 98 rounds
Shotgun – 43 rounds
This may increase slightly once things are set up on Saturday
So bring extra ammo just in case – a really good idea
I’ll be throwing things in this year to simulate real problems
and
Challenging your ability to overcome them
Our 3Gun CHAMPIONSHIP this Year – SEPTEMBER 20th
Check out the website for application info – Register Early before August 1st – Save Money

Thank You!!

I am just getting home from a great time. I dragged a friend and my brother to the match today and we had a great time.

The dark house was a riot. Putting the 5" popper rack up at 100 yards was fun to watch, and even more fun to shoot. Thanks for a great experience and Ammo God's Permitting, we'll be back again!!

Anyone who has a chance to shoot 3 gun should do so. You don't get to have that much fun very often.
