One of the fastest growing shooting sports in the country right now is the action-packed multi-gun competition commonly known as 3-Gun.
The reason for the name is somewhat obvious; competitors use three different firearms -- a modern sporting rifle (MSR), that is, a rifle built on an AR-platform; a pistol; and a shotgun. Matches generally involve courses where the shooter must move through different stages and engage targets in a variety of different positions. Each stage will generally require the use of different firearms and require the shooter to transition between them.
The targets might include clay pigeons, cardboard silhouettes, steel targets of varying sizes and anything else the match organizer designates as a target. Distances of the targets will vary for events. The shooter who hits the most targets -- and avoids certain "no shoot" ones -- in the least amount of time is the winner.
Pemigewasset Fish & Game hosts monthly 3-gun matches, as well as regular classes throughout the season.
