2019 3-Gun Point Series

2019 O3GP Point Series

2019 Point Series Sponsor

The 2019 Point Series for the 3-Gun Program at Ontelaunee Rod & Gun Club is accepting a limited number of shooters and will require a minimum of 12 shooters to open a division for the Point Series.

Each shooter earns Match Points and some Bonus Points for each match they participate in.  Match Points will be totaled for each stage based on your Division finish(see “Match Points” below), each shooter is only shooting against the other Point Series Shooters for Score in their Division.

Shooter Classification Selection: Each Shooter is required to select a  Classification Percentage, by April 20th, 2019.  The 4 Classification Percentages to select from are 100%, 88%, 77% and 66%.  This part of the registration process which allows each shooter to review who the other shooters are, research how you finished in previous matches this past season and select your Shooter Classification Percentage based on your review.  Because this step is a crucial part of the series, we are not requiring shooters to make their final Classification Percentage selection till shortly before the first Point Series match, the first weekend in May 2019.  Remember this is an important step in your registration process because at the end of the season your 4 best match finishes will be added together and then averaged against the field of shooters to verify your Classification Percentage, this is not your Point Series Score, this is your match finish percentage for the season.  If you shoot above your selected Shooter Classification Percentage for the season you will be ineligible for the Prize Money.  So, take the time to review and select your Classification Percentage correctly by the deadline.

Shooters Point Series Score:  Competitors will build to their score each match for the Point Series based on match points earned through stage points at each of our 5 matches in the 2019 3-Gun Season.  Your total Point Series Score will be a total of Stage Points Earned for your best 4 out of 5 MATCH FINISHES.  We are using your best 4 Match Finishes because, this allows everyone a mulligan if they shoot all 5 matches and or this allows you to miss a match without being heavily penalized.  As noted, Shooters are not required to attend all 5 matches, however missing more than one match will cut deeply in to your Point Series total score.  Additionally, Shooters are NOT required to be a 3-Gun Nation Member to shoot in the Point Series.

Match Points: Match Points are earned through stage points as follows at each match.

  • Stage Point Grades: Each stage in a match will be graded by the number of target presentations within the individual stage.
    • Each Target on a stage is worth 3 stage points
    • Targets 120 yards or more out are worth 4 stage points
      • example: A Stage with 42 targets within 75 yards is worth a total of 126 stage points for the match.
    • Each Target at the PA State 3-Gun Championships will be worth 1 point more than a standard monthly match.
      • example: Each target under 120 yards is worth 4 stage points and each target 120 yards or more out is worth 5 stage points.
    • Each shooter will earn stage points based on the percentage you finish, for each stage in your division for the match.
      • example: The stage is worth 126 points, the Division’s stage  winner’s total time with penalties is 64.22 and your total time for the same stage is 87.65, your stage points are calculated as follows; 64.22/87.65= 0.7326, your time is 73% of the stage winner’s time and 73% of 126 possible points is 92 points.
        You would earn 92 Stage Points to your Match Point Score for this specific stage of the match.
    • The Shooters Stage Point Scores for the match will be combined together for your total match points, then each Match’s Score is added to your Point Series Score Card.
    • A Match DQ will result in Zero match points for that match.
  • Point Series shooters are only shooting against same division Point Series Shooters.
  • Estimated Series Points: The May, June, July & August standard matches will average between 600 &  700 stage points at 100% per match.  The PA State Championship Match we estimate will Average between 900 & 1,000 stage points at 100% score.
    • Series Points Example(s): A perfect 100% Points Series Score is estimated to be around 3,380 total points with stage win bonus points.   A Perfect Score for a 88% Shooter is estimated to be 2,730, a 77% Shooter is estimated to be 2,390 and a 66% Shooter is estimated to be 2,050, remember these are estimated perfect scores for the entire season and only presented as an example.
    • At each match, each Stage will be posted with its Maximum Stage Points and the match will list a total of the Stage Points.

Point Series Bonus Points: Shooters also earn bonus points towards Points Series Scores.  Bonus Points are different than Match Points, Bonus Points will count for Match specific Prizes and will be used for tie breakers at the end of the season. 

Tie Breaker Bonus Points:  When we have ties in the score, Tie Breaker Bonus Points will be used first.  Shooters will earn Tie Breaker points for Stage Wins for all 5 matches and match attendance points.

  • Match Attendance: Each shooter will earn 35 Bonus points for each match you attend.
  • Stage Win Points: Each shooter will earn 10 Bonus points for a stage win,  6 Bonus Points for 2nd place and 3 Bonus points for 3rd place.  Points Earned Per Division.
