Three Gun - Apple Valley Gun Club

Three Gun

Three Gun is a centerfire pistol, rifle, and shotgun event.

Three-gun matches are timed events in which competitors move through various stages engaging in targets using a pistol, rifle and shotgun. The sport is rapidly rising in popularity as it combines gun-handling skills, speed and accuracy across three different platforms.

This safe, mildly competitive recreational shooting program will be your stepping stone into the world of three-gun.

There are 3 stages set up with a mixture of paper and steel targets. Scoring is based on a combination of time, knocking down steel, and score on paper. (All scoring done minor, HITS + TIME).

Minimum round count varies depending on stage layout. You will be shooting from various positions and on the move.
