WHIDPA 3 Gun Match this Saturday at the Impact Zone.
Anyone interested in Joining us?
School me on "3 Gun Match"...
What is it and how does it work?
I'll be there, but I usually am. If you still have that shotgun laying around, could you bring it if it's not too much trouble? This is Jason.
It's a practical shooting match that involves using a rifle, pistol, and shotgun. To be competitive you'll need a semi-automatic rifle that is .223 caliber or larger. Most people use AR-15's. A pistol that in at least 9mm and a shotgun that is at least 20 ga. If you want to shoot and don't have all three types of guns you can bring some extra .223, 12 ga. or 9mm and I'll loan you whatever else you need.
At this particular match you will be engaging steel plates with the rifle out to 65 yards and paper targets with the rifle and pistol at closer ranges. With the shotgun you will be shooting at clay targets that are static and steel plates. Scoring is based on how long it takes you to shoot the particular course of fire with time added for any missed targets.
Here are some videos I found on youtube from a WHIDPA 3 gun match last year. I'm not sure who's these are but they'll give you an idea of what to expect. There are lots of others on youtube if you search for 3 gun match.
I am in Dallas this weekend for a family reunion.
I still have the shotgun.
No problem, just thought you were going to the match.
More info about the match for anybody interested. This is from the match director Bob.
