  1. I'm 22 years old and I started shooting 3 gun about a year ago and in that time I have shot about 15 local matches. I'm at the point where I'm itching to go do something bigger and better in a big national multigun match, but I don't know which matches to look at. For example I feel that I shouldn't show up at the USPSA mulitgun Nationals and take last place on every stage and slow people down who are serious and trying to win. But, I do know of matches such as the Rock Castle Pro/Am which sounds perfect to me (I plan on going to that match in 2019). What matches would you recommend for me to do to move to the next level in 3 gun? Please note I'm located in central Indiana. (Sorry if this is the wrong fourm for this post, I wasn't sure where it should go!)
  2. So I figured I should start this as a replacement to my scattered notes on shooting, this way they are in one place. Maybe others can help or my experience can help someone else out. I will try my best to organize posts for my own and other's sake. It may very well turn into an actual diary since shooting sports have quickly become a true passion of mine.
  3. I did a search but nothing on the new Nightforce NX8 1-8 scopes? Should be a great choice for our sport, right? Is there something I have not understood here? Scope seem to be light, compact, BDC, good reticle, 1-8X, FFP, day time visible? What is not to like?
  4. Been lurking for a couple years, referencing the vast resources of knowledge here all the time, so thanks already! My short story is I bought my first gun a few years ago, and bought additional guns i liked for non-competitive reasons for a bit, was asked to attend a .22LR plate shoot shortly thereafter and found i was good enough to enjoy it and see real improvements in a timed/controlled environment. The following summer i borrowed a friend's rifle and shotgun to shoot a local 3gun match.... loved it so much i bought my own shotgun the next day. last year i started shooting USPSA pistol and multigun and driving throughout New England for matches and it's been awesome meeting and shooting with some of the best people i've had the pleasure to get to know. I recognize a number of you i've been able to shoot with in the northeast and look forward to meeting many more! Now comes major match travel, bring it on! -David

  6. Looking for some input on what to expect from a 3 Gun Nation Long Range shoot. VIR is hosting a training class coupled with a match and I am thinking about going. Is it setup toward gas guns and/or will bolt guns be left sucking wind? I have a bolt 308 that should work, maybe a little to much magnification, I also have a 16" gas gun with a fixed power scope that I can cobble together for the event. The class is only about 3 week away so buying or building another rifle and equipment is mostly out due to time constraints. Just trying to get an idea of what to use and expect.
  7. * I am posting this here since it covers several topics and I don't want to get booted from one forum to another because of the breadth of topics * A little background first - I started shooting USPSA production about 8 years ago after I turned 18, and fell in love. I shot as many matches as I could fit into a busy college schedule. I switched over to 3 gun during grad school, and had been enjoying that since graduation. However, last July, my apartment was broken into and my 3 gun rifle and shotgun were both stolen (luckily they didn't notice my 3 week old STI DVC Limited 9mm in the range bag they rifled through), and I have only replaced the AR so far. So since then, I haven't been able to shoot 3 gun since funds have been a little tight and I was down a shotgun. Since late last year and all of this year, I have been shooting exclusively PCC in UML and falling steel matches, and have fallen in love with a gun with a red dot and only having to worry about hitting my targets, and not dealing with as much stage planning as typical 3 gun requires. I have really felt like my speeds and splits have improved dramatically, and I won my first overall match just a month ago shooting PCC. So now I have a new itch (well, not new, but reinvigorated itch) to get into USPSA Open. So here in-lies the dilemma - I miss shooting 3 gun, but I am really enjoying the red dot and fast paced world of PCC and potentially Open... So my question, and what I want to hear your opinions and thoughts on - Do I sell my DVC Limited to go towards a new 9mm Open gun, potentially the new Freedom Gunworks/CK Arms "Solution" and only shoot USPSA Open and UML PCC, or do I keep the DVC, and put a little money into a new shotgun to start shooting 3 gun again? I know the typical answer may be to do both, but that really isn't in the cards right now unfortunately, so I feel like I need help making a decision. I would love to hear any opinions, insight, or experiences you may have in this situation or something similar you have gone through. *I do reload my own ammo, so making major in Open won't be an issue. I am close to a range that has 3 gun, UML, USPSA, and steel matches once a month*

  11. Has anyone shot the Hawk DS yet. I’ve been eyeing a Marauder, but the price point of the Hawk is more inline with my budget. I know I will need to add an ambi-safety and magwell. Trying to figure out if I should get the Hawk sooner, or save for the Marauder.

  13. We just finished up the 3 gun season at our range in Minot, ND. It was a great year with lots of good times. This was our first year as a 3 gun nation affiliated club. We host a match every month on the 4th sunday of the month. Most months we ran at least one classifier and most everyone enjoyed the new style and the ability to be nationally ranked and see how they compare to more than just our club. Along with the 3 gun nation classifiers we still hold around 3 outlaw stages so we have at least 4 stages a month. Something else that we tried this year was a two man team 3 gun match, we had 13 teams of 2 shoot and everyone said they really enjoyed the new format. With such a great response for the team event we will be running another one next year possibly a little earlier in the year to take advantage of better weather. We had 4 different prop guns throughout the year from Automatic sub machine guns, to revolvers, to precision bolt rifles. Everyone enjoyed trying new guns that they may not have had a chance to ever shoot. This year we had a decent return of our regular shooter, but the big surprise was how many new shooters we got every month. I hope we continue to see as many people show up as possible because we love having everyone out. We will be taking November and December off for the holidays, but we will be starting our indoor 2 gun matches in January on the 28th. our 2 gun matches consist of 3-4 stages where you use your normal 3 gun pistol, and for your rifle any rimfire or pistol caliber carbine. If anyone is interested in getting out to try either one of our multi gun matches let me know or message us on our club facebook page and we can usually get you in touch with someone who would love to help get you out there. I have yet to meet someone who doesn't have fun if they are just willing to get out and try the sport. https://www.facebook.com/MinotRifleAndPistol
  14. Hey all, 3 gun season here is Colorado will be over in a couple of months and i'm already thinking about off-season stuff. Looking to replace my primary AR as its getting a little tired. Was thinking it would be nice to know what guys (and girls) would build if they were going down that road. I know I could just buy a completed rifle from a quality company (but wheres the fun in that). So, if you're game, post your dream build. Would like to know all the components (receivers, barrels, triggers, etc), basically everything. Also, if you feel up to it, an explanation on why you would use what you listed would be cool. Looking forward to seeing the info. Thanks
  15. Very excited to be one of the two founder's of the Navy's new Action Shooting Team!!!! Will be posting lots of videos on youtube at the below link...! Been 5 years in the making and it is finally a reality!!!!! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdR_YjajU3YccWzLUOHEXWg?view_as=subscriber

Pro Match Shooter Registration will be open on PractiScore starting February 16, 2017. The Pro Match application will NOT require a registration code & will open like any other 3 Gun Match on Practiscore. The link to the Pro Match application will be public and available on PractiScore, the match website & the Brian Enos Forum. Every year we get people who are not sure if they should shoot Pro or Am. Am & Pro really have little to do with skill level. They are about the kind of match you want to shoot. Am – random draw prize table, easier stages, closer targets, low entry fee ($150), fewer stages. Pro – prize table in order of finish, complex stages, longer distance targets, higher entry fee ($250) & more stages (more rounds overall). Match Website is www.Rock3gun.com.

  17. I have a P320 X-Five coming my way and I was wondering if anyone here may already have some recipes. Looking for any load recipes for use in Production, Carry Optics, Steel and 3-Gun. I will be loading in 9mm using 124gr JHP/CMJ projectiles with either CFE Pistol or Titegroup powders. I'd appreciate any help or recommendations. Thanks!
  18. Hey guys.. looking for someone to lift my welder and open up my loading port in southern cali. Any suggestions would be appreciated. thanks!
  19. Backstory, I have been shooting USPSA Production. Yeah, the saying is true, you never stop there... I have shot ARs a few times in the range, but I actually never own one. I want an AR and I decided to build one. Problem, This is a platform/build for some range time and possibly for 3Gun in near future after practices. After much research, I have already decided on most parts. However, Barrel profile and BCG are two things I cannot decide. I know JP low mass is great, but the price seems very steep considering purchasing with their buffer set. I also heard it requires more maintenance than normal ones. Since I may not do a match very soon. Is it a good idea to get low mass for practicing? Some people recommended FailZero nickel boron BCG, but I heard the Failzero has a bad fit in general. Some people suggested BCM...I am just overwhelmed by the choices... What BCG do you guys recommend? Should I go all in for a Low mass in the beginning? or just spend less on something reliable to practice more? If so, what is your favourite? Another thing is about the barrel, I am solid sold by BlackHoleWeaponry, and considering their 18" 1:7, they have a NatiionalMatch profile, Standard, and Light. Anyone have any experience with such profiles? I have never heard of NationalMatch Profile Here are some stuff on my list Seekins billet set PSA LPK Elf 3gun trigger 18" 1:7 BHW barrel (profile?) BCG (dont know) Sentry7 gas block (is it an overkill?) Magpul moe grip Sorry for the long post... And here is a 'render' of my build scheme
  20. Hey I'm new to shooting, I'm from Denver. Getting into 3 gun. I've done one 3 gun match at the SOCO event. Looking to improve all around and get into USPSA and some PCC.
  21. Hi guys, I have searched around... maybe not enough, but anyways. I shoot my STI DVC Limited 40 in both USPSA and 3Gun. What is your Sight In distance for 2011 Limited with stock adjustable sights? What is your method of sighting in? Off the bags or free hand? It has been awhile since I checked my zero, but yesterday at the local fun match when I had to shoot upper panel only at 15 yards all my shots were going 3 inches low in the black and it took me some time to figure out because I could not see the hits. I later looked at the target and group was tight, but about 3 inch low. I think I have zeroed it at 25 yards but it was sometime ago and I am thinking that it either changed or I was pulling shots.
  22. I will be flying to a match for the first time this year. The thought of reducing all my 3-Gun match logistics to something that can survive the TSA and a cameo appearance in a 1970's American Tourister commercial is, well, daunting... I have the Pelican case. I will pre-ship as much of my ammo as possible and buy the rest (probably birdshot) at a local sporting goods mega-mart, I suppose. What else do I need to do to have this go as smoothly as possible? How do folks sort and pack their stuff to minimize travel difficulties? Two specific questions: (1) Has anybody checked a big long gun case with Delta? Did they charge the oversize bag fee even though it is a special "sporting goods" item? (Golf clubs apparently get around the oversize charge, but it is not clear if other sporting goods do.) (2) Anybody out there used and have opinions on the various luggage tracking devices (like TrakDot)? Thanks!
  23. I recently bit the bullet (and drained the bank account) and purchased a Dillon Super 1050 reloader with a complete Mark7 Autodrive setup for 9mm & .223/5.56mm. I am asking for any and all recipes you folks might have for 9mm to meet Minor PF for USPSA/IPSC Production, IDPA SSP/ESP, as well as Steel matches and general target shooting. Ideally, I would like to use the same basic load for various pistols including Glock 19/17/34, CZ SP01, EAA/Tango, and Sig P320. I am looking for 9mm loads using 124gr projectiles (have plenty on hand already) and either Titegroup, CFE Pistol or AutoComp powders (all on hand). As for .223/5.56mm, I will be using it for local 3Gun and carbine matches with a 55gr projectile and leaning towards Varget or CFE223 powders. Any and all recipes or help is greatly appreciated! Thanks all!
  24. setting this up for some practice with a few shooting buddies. want some physical, mental and difficulty challenges to test our skills. What do you think? This will be set up in a 100 yard by 50 yard bay.The small 3"X 5" steel will simulate a full target at 600 yards FIELD GOAL.docx HURT ME.docx FIELD GOAL.pdf HURT ME.pdf
  25. Ran into three videos featuring Roberto Vezzoli and the 1301 Comp. Some of the information is great for beginners like me and some for more experienced 1301 users, particularly the close-ups of his loading port and lifter modifications. The first is an overview: The second addresses set up issues including length of pull and several close up views of his loading port and lifter modifications: The third is an introduction to shotgun handling that also includes a modified quad load where he drops the first into the chamber, then puts the remaining three into the tube.
