We are excited to announce that, for the first time in 3-Gun history, a ladies-only major 3-Gun match will be hosted in 2014!

The Brownells Lady 3-Gun Challenge will be hosted by Atlanta 3-Gun at the South River Gun Club near Atlanta, Georgia on October 31 through November 1, 2014. Kay Miculek and I have teamed up as Match Directors and a winning team of match staff Sandra Orvig, Athena Means, Shelley Giddings, Candy Sugarman, and Janna Reeves.

After our very busy and productive week at SHOT SHOW we learned how truly amazing the shooting industry is in supporting the growth of Lady Shooters across the nation. With their support we have built a prize table for this match that is beyond any we have seen!

Please Share this with every Lady you know and encourage them to sign-up on February 8th.

This is fantastic and I know a couple of ladies I will be encouraging to enter! If not that, I will encourage them to come out and watch.

Looks like a real strong and positive team behind this.

I am super excited about this match. I think this is a great idea, especially for new shooters who may be intimidated by the prospect of entering a large-scale match. I have the registration date marked on my calendar. And my fingers are crossed I make it in.

Thanks to all the fabulous people who helped make this possible!

Beginners who might be nervous & curious about this upcoming match...

Join me on www.ArmedCandy.net as I learn, write about and discuss competition shooting. I will be going to matches around Georgia and talking to accomplished female shooters in order to understand all the details. I bet I'm not the only one with tons of questions, so let's learn together!

To any of the men signing up as Volunteer RO's...you may want to use a different email address than your spouse if she is shooting.

When I signed up to RO via the volunteer link, all of my wife's squad, division and shooter info stayed the same, but was replaced with my name.

Lisa-Marie had to go in and manually change the name back to my wife...and it updated to her on the shooter and RO list, so it must be tied to the email address. She's looking into it to try to get it resolved if possible.

Figured I'd throw that out there so maybe I'll be the only guy who was like :surprise: when I saw my name show up on a squad for this match.

I figured you'd try to find some way of shooting the match, John....

:)

I told him it wasn't worth the surgery . . . he's persistent though.

Just registered, was #213 though. Thought only 200 competitors. Not complaining though just curious, I am now regretting waiting to sign up. This will be my first 3gun and I'm new to competitive shooting as well. Excited to train in the next few months. Any tips appreciated!

Clarification though: will firearms be available for rent during the event or just for the clinic before the event? Thanks!

Anyone know is this going to be all bay style, or is there natural terrain. And what about long range, do we need to practice up for that?
