3-Gun Gear Recommendations


I have been all over the country shooting 3-Gun and have had the opportunity to see, test and try out a lot of gear. I am the type of shooter that likes to try new things and play with new gear but I generally don’t buy anything new unless I feel like something I am currently using is holding me back.

Below is a list of the gear that I use and recommend.

  • You have a great show Dave! It really promotes the shooting sports in a positive light.

    I recently took over as the multi-gun match director at our club. Our 1st match this year was my baptism as match director. I think we put on a quality match at a very reasonable cost to the shooter ($40). We tried hard to build stages that introduce our shooters to the kind of things they’ll see at a major match. We provided lunch and an awards/prize table presentation after the match. The after action feedback was very supportive. All of the proceeds from the 1st match went back into purchasing trophies, additional targets and supplies for our next match.

    I’ve been reaching out to the shooting industry/community both locally and nationally looking for stage sponsorship help for our next match. With so many matches around the country and a sales dip in the industry it’s getting harder and harder to find match sponsorship support. You interact with a very large section of the shooting industry. Would you be interested in helping connect our club with stage sponsors to grow the shooting sports, in particular multi-gun, in our area?
