Have you ever wondered what 3-gun competition is all about?

How do you get started? Where do you get training?

Here is your answer: 3-Gun University

A Girl & A Gun gathers the best competitors in the industry for exclusive training in the 3-gun sport. Participants have access to professional shooters to (1) learn the fundamentals of shooting and the rules of the game, and then (2) receive meaningful support to grow beyond the entry level and be real contenders.

With 4 different ways to enjoy the 3GU experience, newbies and experienced competitors can learn and expand their skills in the friendly and professional environment that AG & AG is known for.

3GU Instructor and Fall Fest Champion Ashley Rheuark

3-Gun University allows shooters to learn all aspects of the sport: pistol shooting, rifle shooting and optics, shotgun shooting and reloading, gear and equipment, and the gaming mindset and rules. Participants enjoy 1:1 time with professional shooters to learn from the best and obtain the fundamental skills needed to be a successful 3-gun competitor. Depending on the format, competitors can run a stage or a match under the tutelage of a coach to help make mental preparations, plan reloads, and hone strategies.

What is 3GU?

3GU is a personalized program for aspiring 3-gun competitors. Participants learn tips and tricks from pro shooters. Live-fire classes focus on fundamentals in all platforms with paper and steel targets at varying distances. Lectures classes address gear, optics, and related topics.

3GU Prerequisites

3GU assumes that participants have familiarity with each firearm platform. While fundamentals will be addressed, shooters should be able to comfortably operate their pistols, rifles, and shotguns without assistance prior to attending the program.
