Three Gun Competition
- Purpose of Course: Designed by Pro 3 gun shooters Mike Sexton and Chad Drewery, this course will introduce the shooter to the basics of what is perhaps the most exciting and challenging shooting sport in existence. The skills and techniques used are much the same as covered in the Advanced Handgun, Rifle, and Shotgun courses, with the addition of learning to use them in transition and conjunction. The student will be ready to enter competition in this demanding venue, and able to engage targets from point blank to extreme range with appropriate selection of the proper firearm. The course will excel the student in the equipment, courses of fire, and techniques involved in shooting 3 gun competitions. Among the subjects covered will be shooting while moving, shooting moving targets, shooting the rifle at both short and long range targets, combining speed and accuracy, shotgun reloading techniques, proper ammo, and assessing stages to determine the best response and strategies to complete the course of fire. This course will also assist the student in selecting the correct equipment to compete in major 3 gun matches.
