The fastest growing and most exciting shooting sport out there right now is 3 gun competition. If you are not familiar with 3 gun, you are encouraged to watch a match and learn before you try. The best part is that you don’t really need any special equipment to start and anyone can play. 3 Gun consists of a set of courses in which you shoot three different guns – rifle, pistol and shotgun – at different stages and engage various short and long distance targets from various positions. Generally, any rifle over 5.45×39 is in (including PCC), and shotgun with 20ga or larger will work and a 9mm or larger pistol is good to go.
Scoring is based on time and hits minus penalties, with each stage consisting of different scenarios and degree of difficulty. Basically, the shooter who hits the most targets in the least amount of time wins.
It’s very exciting, requiring a combination of safety, shooting speed and accuracy with different guns.
