2019 Ontelaunee 3-gun Range Officer Workshop

2019 Ontelaunee 3-Gun Range Officer Workshop

Practiscore Registration Click Here

The 3-Gun program at Ontelaunee Rod & Gun Club in New Tripoli, PA is holding an R/O Workshop at the Club from 8 am to 5 pm on Sunday March 17th, 2019.

This Workshop is heavily focused on solidarity of the 3-Gun Nation Rules and will prepare individual R/Os to work as pairs of squad-R/Os for the 2019, 3-Gun season.  We will be reviewing the 3-Gun Nation Rules, as well as the modifications used during all Ontelaunee 3-Gun matches.

Workshop participants will learn 3-Gun Nation rules for proper target engagement and how those rules can still allow “shooter’s choice of firearm” in the use of the three guns at Ontelaunee.

Workshop participants will also learn how a “shooter’s choice of movement” through the course of fire is handled by the squad-R/O team. Simply expecting the unexpected is a task best managed by multiple sets of eyes.

This workshop is a one day event and will be split in to two working groups in the morning.  Group 1 will be our advanced RO’s rotation working in the indoor range.  Group 2 will be our new RO’s  rotation attending the 3-Gun Nation Range Officer Course in classroom session.  After lunch both groups will come together to expand on the earlier information and focus on working together to prepare for the 2019 3-Gun season.

Workshop topics include:

– De-mystifying the 3-Gun Nation rules for R/Os

– working as a team of R/O’s

– safe tables, staging tables, and grounding containers

– movement of the firearms from bags, carts and slings – long before the start buzzer

– staging of firearms within the course of fire do’s and don’t

– DQs and warnings

– scoring and clearing a stage of all the current shooter’s firearms, both on a full clear and time stop with working re-set.

– staging the next shooter while clearing the finished shooter

– learning from experienced competitors and new shooters alike

– and did we mention the de-mystifying the 3-Gun rules for R/Os?

Participants will learn which R/O should be where and what each R/O should be focused on during a course of fire. This R/O workshop is meant to promote shooter safety while working safely as a TEAM in a fast-paced environment.

This R/O Workshop promotes the idea that the best R/O’s are those who not only enjoy the shooting sports, but who want to promote in others a safe and enjoyable shooting experience.
