WHAT IS 3-GUN?
3 Gun is an action shooting sport that combines the use of rifle, a pistol, and a shotgun in a course of fire that often involves all 3 guns and transitions between them.  Stages are typically made up of paper, steel, and clay targets in various configurations with different barriers and obstacles that require you to maneuver through the course.

A TYPICAL COLFAX MATCH
The two most important goals of our matches are to keep them safe and fun!

Matches will typically consist of 4 (or more in 2019!) stages, varying each match.  Competitor check-in will commence in the clubhouse at 8:15am with the shooter’s meeting to begin at 9:00am and shots down range shortly after.  Please be ready to squad up and begin shooting right after the meeting!!  We also have concessions on site and will plan for a lunch break mid-day.

$30.00 for non club members
$25.00 for club members
$20.00 for Range Officers working event
$15 for Juniors 17 and under

** Shooters dismissed for a safety violation will not be refunded entry fee’s.

OUR STAFF
Our range officers are NRA certified (in addition to many being NROI certified) and vary in experience from running local bowling pin and steel challenge matches to taking youth teams to compete at the national level and working national matches for various organizations such as 3-Gun Nation, United Shooting Sports Leagues and more.  We are a young 3-Gun club and learning as we go.

You can be assured there will be staff in the clubhouse to handle registration and serve food along with several range officers helping to run our squads through the match.  Some will participate in the events while others are there just to ensure the event is run in as safe a manor as possible.

GUNS & GEAR
Everyone should plan to bring, at minimum, appropriate eye and hearing protection to be used throughout the course of the match.  While many competitors are willing to loan you the items below, the typical gear required to compete are as follows.

Please note, you should refer to the 3-Gun Nation rules link below for division limitations on the equipment below.

Pistols: Typically semi-auto and typically high capacity 9mm or above but revolver shooters are welcome!

Shotguns:  Semi-auto or pump in 12 or 20 ga. and an extended magazine is recommended.

Rifles:  Semi-auto rifles, typically built on the AR platform, in .223/5.56 or .308/7.62 caliber.  AK, Tavor, or SCAR platforms are also welcome. NEW in 2019 – PCC (Pistol Caliber Carbine)!

Other Gear:  2-4 pistol and rifle magazines, a good belt with enough space to hold your handgun holster, a couple of spare pistol mag pouches, and some shotgun shell caddies.

Ammo:  Bring 150 rounds for each firearm and you’ll probably have a bunch left over; always factor in your accuracy and possible re-shoots when calculating ammunition.  To be safe, bring 10-20 slugs to each match too as we may throw some of those in as well.
NOTE:  No steel core ammunition is allowed and you will be responsible for damage to steel targets for improper ammunition
