May 20th, It has a nice ring to it. The match is on and the stages are finished. They are posted below and on the website.

You will need the usual Rifle, Pistol, Birdshot, Slugs etc... check the stages for exact count.

No Steel core or steel jacketed ammo please!

Bring a snack and plenty of water to drink it will be in the mid 80's.

I'm new to multi gun but not to action pistol. Will I be a complete goof with a pump rem 870?

Not at all. It's actually fun with a pump. The bigger question is what is the magazine capacity? It it is only 3-4 rds, then maybe a bit tough. But if it is 7-8rd, then you are good to go. My buddy still uses his 870 and does just fine.

If you've shot action pistol, you can shoot 3-Gun! People do run pump guns the first few times out and then switch to semiautos later on.

Good to know. I'm running an 8 round mag. What kind of rifle sights are the norm. Will an eotech work?

I would say that since it is your first time, sure go for it with the eotech.

However, even the simplist bead sight will work just fine.

If you start shooting regularly, more than likely you'll be ditching the reddot. With an optic on a shotgun, you are put in an "Open" race gun class. Most people start in a simpler class.

But back to my original statement, bring what you have and you will see what works and what doesn't.

My first match: 16" Dissapator with a 4x optic and a bullet button, Winchester 1300, XD40 with 10rd mags. FUN AS HELL.

However, I have now adjusted my gear accordingly.

Oops. Rifle sights.

Yeah, just go for it. Take a look around and see what other guys are using and adjust accordingly the next match.

That's what I did, then Randy was so generous to lend me his M1S90. Now that our beloved brother has passed I FINALLY picked up my M2 last week.

Besides Dave MW who else knows how to massage these autos? Can't wait to run with you guys soon!

Rob Melhorn MAY still do it locally. Other than that, the only other resources are C-RUMS and Accurate Iron.

That was a great match BTW! Ton of new people. And I'm sure you guys enjoyed the spinning texas star guarded by double swinging no shoots as much as i did!

That double swinging no shoot Texas star was one of the most miserable/frustrating experiences I have ever had. Just because the bottom plate is easily accessible does not make it a good idea to take it first lol. Ya learn something new everyday I guess, that thing was really moving

I talked to Sammy on Thursday and he was still working on them. I'll give him a shout this weekend to remind him before he leaves for IronMan.

Sorry for the long delay guys.

I crashed my confuser a while back and am still in the process of getting everything back together.

I just finished the scores and they should be up on the web site within a couple of hours.

Thanks for your patience in this matter and keep an eye out for next months stages.
I got something cooking that will either excite you or kill you ( Ironman jungle run)

Happy Fathers day!

What a great way to spend the day with Dad! Shooting X3 Multi-Gun Hoo-Yah!

This Sunday June 17th Ive got a real challenge for you, some of us just came back from shooting the Iron Man Competition in Idaho and we want to share some of the experiences we had. So, hang on to your hat....

You will need the usual Rifle, Pistol, Birdshot as well as plenty of Slugs and BuckShot.
The weather will be nice, and remember the range is a dry range so bring a snack and plenty of water.

Also for you first timers, we welcome you to come out and join us but please do not bring any steel core or A.P. ammunition to the range it can cause a fire as well as damage the targets.

The stages are listed below as well as on our web site

x3multigun.com

The heat must have got to me because I mounted my GoPro but forgot to turn it on! Whoops.
Trust me, you'll definitely want to shoot it the next time Sammy does it. That whole setting is awesome, it felt like I was shooting a major match stage.

Scores are up on x3multigun.com! That was a great turnout considering the heat.

BTW - found this video of some gaming bastard and the jungle run.

I was browsing this section and am interested in attending a match. Would this be good for a first time match participant? Looking for some guidance on what Ill need and what I need to do. I have a bullet buttoned rifle and a pistol, no shotgun.

Thanks.

New people are starting all the time, especially last month when there were 15 or so! Having said that, I think you'll want to start with the Action Pistol match first since you don't have any match experience. This will allow you to build some experience with safety protocols, range commands and running around with loaded guns. There is a sticky thread in this forum titled 'What you need to get started shooting tactical type matches' that has a lot of relevant information in it. Hope this helps.

The Piru Action Pistol match announcements are also made in this forum and listed on their website: http://www.deadwoodboys.org/

Action Pistol is a great way to start. This Saturday would be a good day.

Actually, I'll be staying after the match to sight in my 3-gun rifle (again, yet another change in my gear) if you would like to join me. Bring whatever you have and I can show you, we can discuss some gear options.

PM me if you are interested in the action pistol match as you can join in my squad and I can explain details (mainly safety) and give you direction.

I always screw up the dates.

Go to Deadwood Boys, and look for the Action Pistol dates. Don't be fooled by the Cowboy shoots. The Action Pistol is for us "non" six shooters.

http://www.deadwoodboys.org/

(Nothing against the six shooters, looks like fun, just not my cup of tea).

Are the stages up in the X3 website?

Where is stage 5/6, or am I missing something.

Another Jungle Run? Sweet! I missed the last one.

Hello everyone,

It is that time again.

This weekend July 15th you have another opportunity to conquer the evil stage master. (who ever that is this month)

The weather is warming up so make sure you bring plenty of sun screen, water, and things to eat.

You will need the usual count of Rifle, Bird, Buck, and Pistol. No Slugs this month.

Please check your ammo before you come to the range.
NO STEEL CORE OR STEEL JACKETED AMMO IS ALLOWED ON THE RANGE!

The stages are posted below and on our web site along with rules and directions.

x3multigun.com

Please arrive early and sign up to make sure that you will get to shoot with your friends.

After being rained out practically each match last winter, it is nice the weather has been cooperating this summer.

August 19th forecast is the high 80's.

I heard the Action Pistol match on Saturday was miserable for those that were brave enough to go.

I went to the AP match and you're right, it was Africa hot! 80s is downright chilly compared to last weekend. Unfortunately, I'll be out of town this weekend so for you guys that make it, you may see the new incline wall for the first time. It should make a helluva addition to the jungle run.

I'll be attending this August's match as a first timer. never did any type of competitive shooting so it'll be interesting to say the least.

A buddy of mine did it as a first timer last month and said that everyone was really friendly so that definately makes me feel a lot more comfortable.

Very excited. I had some extra time after work the last two weeks and make some custom kydex holsters for all my gear. Hopefully I got it right and it'll work properly!

See you guys this Sunday.

Will
