Upcoming 3 Gun

It's all Laura B and the Trooper Sgt's fault. Purgatory Flats Multigun, Hard as Hell. I need a few things before December. I'm running an 870 for a shotgun and after watching the video and talking to some guys who ran it last year it's pretty obvious that's a non starter. My coach wants me to but an M2 but this shotgun is intriguing. Both need about the same accessories (extended mag tube, rail, sights, etc.) but the initial price point is significant. The word on the forums about the CZ is almost universally positive.If I can only find one.

I have the M1A and I think I'm going to run that. I'm in the Tactical Centerfire division and that requires a 7.62X39 minimum for rifle. That means the M1A or a new AR upper in one of the .30 calibers. I already have the RS2 sling and a good scope. I think a Basset mount.

I'm shooting about as much as I can, time and ammo considerations allowing. In fact, I shot a classifier match on Saturday. Still slow but I think I did well enough for C Class which ain't exactly horrible considering.

Nuevo El Presidente. All 3 targets are partially covered. This is a classifier stage.

I still feel clumsy and awkward and my reloads need a lot of work. But then I am old :)

Shooting steel tonight, a competition class with my coach on Thursday and gun/ accessory shopping. It's gonna be a good week!

Looks like a ton of fun. Jennifer and I need to make new videos of shotgun shooting, now that we have better cameras. Since we're Winchester nerds, we've developed a couple of tricks that only work with Winchesters. Maybe we can get into three gun eventually and learn how incompetent we really are. :P

Sounds like fun, Six - good luck!

Enjoy and have fun! Hopefully ammo will start coming back...

I'll be doing a lot of shotgun work getting ready Michael. It's looking like a tough shooting sport but it should be fun. I hope you and Jennifer decide to give it a try. Hey, I'm going to be shooting my 870!

Thanks Rev. Paul!

Thank you NFO! Luckily, we have a local ammunition maker who supplies the club. We have a steady supply to ball ammo and it's dang reasonably priced too.

Good Luck! I have a Mossberg 930 that some folks don't seem to think much of... but I run the daylights out of it and it keeps going...

I wish I'd have talked to you sooner Dann. I went to the store specifically to buy a Rhythm and ended up with a $1000 dollar Benelli that turns out to be wholly unusable in 3 gun. Can you say SCREWED.? I'll be writing about it later.
