Match RULES: We are a 3 Gun Nation Club Member and are following 3 Gun Nation rules for the 2019 season and the link above is a pdf of the rules. Safety is most important and our first concern at all matches and the majority of DQ’s happen when shooters are unfamiliar with the basic rules. We strongly suggest reading the rules to get an overview and understand the equipment and whats expected at the match. All Long Guns are required to have chamber flags in them at all times. Do not Un Bag your firearms at the vehicles to rack in your carts, use the safe tables located though out the designated competition range area.
Divisions Honored: The matches honor the following 3-Gun Nation Divisions. Practical, Factory, Unlimited, Practical PCC and Unlimited PCC. Please note that Heavy Optic and Heavy Sport are not being offered at this time.
- The matches normally consist of 7 stages. We welcome those interested in 3-gun to come out and see how much fun it can be. Matches are held in an array of bays at Ontelaunee Rod & Gun Club. We run a minimum of six 3-Gun Nation classifier stages during the season, and we allow re-shoots and alternate Division shoots, There is a $5.00 charge for each classifier re-shoot and or alternate division to shoot each classifier.
One of the exciting things in 3-gun is the option for the competitor to choose which firearm they will use in a stage. The option to use rifle, pistol or shotgun at each stage is shooter choice except when designated in the stage briefing. Certain targets will be designated for specific firearms only in the match and stage briefing. A review of the video links above will provide a look at the types of stages we have at out matches.
We will not be posting stage layouts before the matches. For those wishing to get an earlier glimpse of the stage layouts you have 2 simple options. The first is to come help setup, you not only get to see them you get a lot of time to walk through them. The second option is to come out early and walk them before the match begins. Because of time restraints on match day Each squad is limited to 5 minutes once your squad R/O has arrived and the previous squad has moved on.
Estimated Round Counts: Because each shooter has the option to neutralize each target with multipal choices of firearms, we don’t provide round counts. What we do provide is what we call a Safe Ammo Count Packing List. You will not use all the ammunition listed on this list, however it is better to take home what you didn’t use, than to not have the right amount with you.
Pistol: 300 rounds
AR Rifle/PCC Carbine: 200 Rounds (No Steel tip, green tip, Armor Piercing, tracers or exploding rounds)
Shotgun: 250 Rounds of Birdshot and 20 Slugs
(12, 16 & 20 gauge lead shot only in 6, 7-1/2, 8 and 9)
* absolutely no steel shot allowed*
New to 3-Gun: For those of you new to 3-Gun and looking for basic information on the sport, the following link is the beginning of a webpage with links to other webpages and Youtube videos I started to help others find information on the sport. We look forward to seeing you at the matches.
