What is 3 Gun? (Rifle, Shotgun and Pistol)

Our History – We used a blended approach of the major organization’s rules. As we collect club fees we try to add new and different equipment to help make the matches fun.

Matches are designed, setup and run by NRA Range Safety Officers.

Our matches are very “new 3 gunner” friendly.

We use at least 4 or 5 different ranges during the match so a shooting cart or wagon is helpful to transport all your weapons and equipment.

Chamber flags are required for all rifles and shotguns. Reloads are allowed as long as they are safe.



  • Pistols .38 Special/9MM or larger, No magnums, Jacketed OK
  • Shotguns 20 gauge or larger
  • Shotgun Ammo-#6 shot or lighter; Lead shot only
  • Rifle Ammo-.223 or larger, NO Green-tip, armor-piercing, Steel-core, tracer or incendiary


Holsters must cover the trigger guard and securely hold the pistol. Holsters must be rigid enough to allow for re-holstering with one hand (the floppy fabric holsters are unsafe) and retain a pistol when vigorous movement is involved.

No cross draw or shoulder holsters.

Round count estimate – 120 rifle, 120 pistol, 75 shotgun (#6, 7.5 or 8 shot) and 5 slugs.

Magazines/speed loaders capable of a minimum of 40 rounds/stage for Pistol

Eye & Ear protection is required for all shooters and observers
