Brief Introduction to 3Gun

Practical Long-Range Rifle Shooting, Part I - Rifle & Equipment - Practical precision rifle shooting involves engaging small and/or distant targets at the limit of weapon, ammunition, and shooter capability under time pressure in field settings. This article lays out the rifle and equipment a shooter needs to make long-range hits.   [more >>]
Practical Long-Range Rifle Shooting, Part II - Optics -  What kind of scope do you need for practical long-range rifle shooting in the field? This article discusses the desired capabilities and their tradeoffs, going into minute detail in every aspect of rifle scope selection.   [more >>]
Practical Long-Range Rifle Shooting, Part III - Shooting - You have the rifle, good optics, and all the gear. This article brings it all together by stepping through what a shooter has to do to make long-range hits in the field, starting from establishing a zero and progressing to shooter/spotter communication and wind management.   [more >>]
Evolution of the 3-Gun Practical Rifle -  The concept and execution of the practical rifle has come a long way over the last twenty-five years as old designs and prejudices gave way to new equipment and new realizations about what a carbine can accomplish. The modern 3-Gun rifle represents a format combining reliability, accuracy, and compact size which is applicable to both competition and tactical use. (2008 Book of the AR-15)   [more >>]
2010 Steel Safari Practical Rifle Match -  The 2010 Steel Safari can be characterized by one word: HOT. Temperatures started ramping up on Friday for the Long-Range Side Match, reaching about 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and peaked on Saturday with a high of 109. The shooting was hotter than ever too, with winning scores higher than ever before, and more shooters with high scores than every before.   [more >>]
Colorado Multigun 2009 Steel Safari Practical Rifle Match -  The 2009 Steel Safari was a tough match with tough competition. Although there was overall a little less wind speed than in '08, the wind changes made up for it. With a few procedural tweaks to ensure fair competition and less confusion, shooters were put to an extremely tough mental, physical, and marksmanship challenge. The competitor who had the skill, preparation, and luck locked down the match title.   [more >>]
Colorado Multigun 2008 Steel Safari Practical Rifle Match -  The 2008 Steel Safari was extra tough this year for two reasons: extreme wind and extreme heat. With more target opportunities, shooters were put to an extreme tough mental, physical, and marksmanship challenge. The competitor who had the skill, preparation, and luck locked down the match title, but all those that finished were treated to a prize table better than any prior year's match   [more >>]
Blue Steel Ranch 2007 Steel Safari Practical Rifle Match -  One of the best field-style hike-and-shoot long-range rifle challenges is known only to a small number of shooters. Dave Wheeler has been running his "Steel Safari" match for about ten years on his thousand-acre private ranch in the rugged terrain near Logan NM. The format of the match boils down the essence of practical rifle shooting in the field: to locate small and medium-sized steel targets (often hidden), range and engage while "on the clock" with a challenging time limit.   [more >>]
Steel Safari 2006 - I recently shot the Steel Safari rifle match, run at a private ranch near Logan NM. This match follows the general idea of the Keneyathlon-- movement, target location, and engagement. The match format this year was two field courses, and a couple side-stages.  [more >>]
2008 Rocky Mountain 3-Gun Nationals -  Once again, JJ and Denise Johnson have put on an excellent Rocky Mountain 3-Gun Nationals. RM3G is the best conventional 3-Gun match in the country due to use of geographical features in stage design, facilities, and stage difficulty. After taking over the match from prior management in 2007 and doing a great job, 2008 was their second year and they showed they can consistently administer a world-class, challenging national 3-Gun event.   [more >>]
2007 Rocky Mountain 3-Gun Nationals -  The Rocky Mountain 3-Gun Nationals (RM3G), is the best conventional 3-Gun match in the country due to use of geographical features in stage design, facilities, and stage difficulty. After some management problems during the 2006 match, JJ and Denise Johnson took over for 2007, and boy did they do a great job.   [more >>]
2007 Camp Guernsey Multi-Gun Invitational Match Report -  The Invitational was an individual multi-gun match designed to test a competitor's skills shooting long-range rifle, carbine, and pistol to their effective ranges at practical targets in the natural terrain. One of our goals was to make it possible to hit every target shooting standard-issue military weapons systems, but make no mistake- this was a tough and unforgiving match.   [more >>]
Practical Rifle Team Challenge 2006 -  Colorado MultiGun just concluded its first annual Practical Rifle Team Challenge (PRTC), and I am pleased that it was so successful. This was a different kind of match than what both long-range ("sniper") shooters and 3-Gunners are used to, and from the positive comments we've heard so far, I believe people will be talking about this match for a long time.   [more >>]
Rocky Mountain 3Gun 2005 -  I arrived at the NRA WC about 1.30pm Wed and checked in. The overall format was virtually identical to the 2004 match: 8 stages, three shot each of Thursday and Friday, two and the team shoot on Saturday. The machinegun side-match run by Alan Samuel's, and the long-range rifle side-match run by Mike Kolar of the Sporting Rifle Match  [more >>]
Rocky Mountain 3Gun 2004 -  I arrived at the NRA Whittington Center at about 2pm on Wednesday and checked in. Raton has had much much more precipitation this year than recent years, so the whole environment was transformed by the flora compared to last year.  [more >>]
Rocky Mountain 3Gun 2003 -  The RM3GM took place at the NRA Whittington Center near Raton, NM. The Whittington Center is on land sold to the NRA by some large mining/steel company in the 1970's. The 31,000 acres that makes up the W.C. includes a canyon that was mined for coal starting in 1902, and surrounding area.  [more >>]
