3Gun is held the 4th Saturday of every month. It is a tactical-style match using barricades, doors, and various other props. You will get a lot of experience shooting from different positions (standing, sitting, prone), shooting on the move, reloading, shooting from cover, shooting through barricade openings, etc.
Folks who are new to 3Gun or to shooting matches in general are encouraged to come on out and give it a try. We offer a fun, casual and relaxed shooting experience. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. As this is not a sanctioned match such as IPSC, you will find more shooters here just for the fun of a day shooting.
The only thing we do take seriously is SAFETY.
Get to the range about 8:30am. for signups and shooter briefing. We try to start the fun by 9:00am.
As a general rule of thumb, bring 100 rounds of pistol, 150 rounds of rifle, 100 lead birdshot or un-plated lead buckshot, and maybe 10 shotgun slugs. That will get you through any match with ammo to spare.
The match consists of 5 courses of fire – 4 held in bays ranging from 20 to 80 yds. deep, and the 5th held in the “back 40” which gives us up to 200+ yds. Usually we have only one pistol stage, but often use a pistol in combination with a long gun on another stage.
Scoring is time plus penalties.
We have several equipment divisions for you to shoot in. From .22LR up to Heavy Metal, no matter what kind of gear you shoot, we have a place for you.
Match fee is $10 for WEGC members, $20 for guest shooters.
