Students get clinics on each topic and VIP squadding for the related matches. Instructors will (1) help you hone the fundamentals of shooting and the strategies of the game, and (2) provide meaningful support to help you grow beyond the entry level and achieve your best score.
Who Can Register for 3GU? Q: “Do you have to participate in the match to register?” A: The Tues-Thurs 3GU clinics are for competitors registered in the Multigun Challenge.
NOTE: 3GU assumes that participants have familiarity with their firearm(s). While fundamentals will be addressed in clinics, shooters should be able to comfortably operate the firearm(s) needed for their match(es) without assistance.
3-Gun University: “It was an AWESOME, well organized event. Great 3-Gun University, learning, drills absolutely teaches you everything you need to know and then some for this event! The instructors were very knowledgeable and very nice. A definite do again!”
Multigun Challenge: “The most beneficial thing was competing with other women and not a bunch of Special Forces guys. I could see how I truly stacked up.”
Multisport Challenge: “I had a total blast and will go again and again wherever it is. I also want to acknowledge the HUGE undertaking it must have been to get that multisport match on Sunday organized. It couldn’t have been more perfect – from the wise (and brilliant) decision to use only the sponsors’ guns to the affordable and simple to purchase ammo package. Please have that again next year if you can stand to do it again. It was beyond awesome and a fun and exciting change from the seriousness of the multigun match even though it was plenty hard. Thank you for an unbelievable week!!”
Multigun Challenge: “It was very instructional and I came home fired up! I learned a lot. And got to meet and spend time with other women shooters that shared their skills and all info related to 3-gun.”
Multigun Challenge: “LOVED IT!!! And hope to bring some new 3-Gunners with me next year! :-)”
Multigun Challenge: “I believe this is a quality match put on by quality people. Match design was off the charts. Match director was excellent- prize table was amazing!”
Multisport Challenge: “I love the Multisport concept. I feel it embodies the AG & AG concept as it is not stuck on one style. It encourages ALL shooters, new & experienced, to try different disciplines in a safe, fun, encouraging environment. Well done and I hope you do it again next year. Don’t change a thing.”
