Our local 3 gun promoter and all around good guy came back from the Fort Benning 3 gun match with a finish in the top 15. Great job.

If you want to shoot monthly 3 gun matches with some of the best shooters in the country X3 is the place.

The big story was: Taran getting bumped to open, for an equipment violation, and then winning open class!

Taran getting bumped to open and then winning the class must have been great to see.

Congrats!

What was the violation?

Several of us thought the shotgun capacity rule in Tactical was "start with no more than 9 rounds" as many other "time plus", IMG type matches are (previous Ft Benning matches too, I believe). So, we all had our 9-round tubes which allow us to top off to 10 rounds total in the gun (only after the start), if necessary.
Some of us found out about the mistake beforehand and plugged our tubes, to limit the capacity (thanks to and under the watchful eye of Kurt Miller).
Taran did not find out until after he shot the stage. Consequently, he had to move to Open class.

So if he shot open then he shot against all the tube fed, mag fed, drum fed shotguns and he had to load each round one at a time by hand.

Yep pretty much confirms again Taran is the best of the best.
