EVERYONE, PLEASE READ THE
WHOLE PAGE AND SAFETY 1st BULLET POINTS BELOW
We will be using again the International Multi-Gun Rules this year and going forward. Please review. Some differences in scoring are below.
Safety 1st! All firearms coming out of your vehicle are to be flagged with an ECI (empty chamber indicator) and go directly to the stage racks, Safe Area, or stay bagged. No parking lot show-n-tell! (If you don’t have an ECI, come buy them at the signup table before removing them from the vehicle).
Match Day Schedule
7:00 am – Set up begins
Multi-gun matches are usually a little more set-up intense. The Match Director will be there by 7:00 am, please come help set up before 7:30 am or get here when you can. (If you are really froggy, we usually will start setting up Friday night 5-7 pm to get a head start).
1st time 3gunners must shoot at least one other action shooting match before coming to this 3 Gun match. If you have shot an IDPA, USPSA, or another club’s 3gun match, you are good to go. We welcome all new shooters at BGSL, please look for USPSA or IDPA match before coming to this match! Some members may have a rifle or other equipment you can borrow to get you going. If you have questions about the match after reading this page, contact Joseph Guthrie at 859-576-6240 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
9:00ish am to 9:50 am – Match registration.
The match fee is $15 for BGSL members, $20 for non-members, and $5 for BGSL juniors, and $15 for non-member juniors.
9:45 am – Shooter’s meeting and squad formation.
10:00 am – Shooting begins or when stages are ready.
3:00 ish – Tear down after your last stage.
Volunteer Sport! Everyone is expected to help tear down ALL stages (if not done already). Many hands make light work.
What do I need to know and bring?
- All BGSL and Pistol Pit rules (link) are in effect, unless under the direct one-on-one supervision of your Range Officer (R.O.). Everyone is expected to know these!
- This is a COLD RANGE, you should never have ammo and/or magazine in a firearm at the match unless you are under the direct one-on-one supervision of an R.O. and shooting a stage.
- Empty Chamber Indicators (ECI) are required for long guns. You may purchase one for $2 each.
- All long guns should be carried with the muzzle pointing straight up in the air, with ECI in place.
- Pistols should always remain in the holster unless in a safe area or under the direct one-on-one supervision of an R.O. while shooting a stage.
- While loading and unloading (under the direct one-on-one supervision of the R.O.), keep the muzzle pointed at the middle of the berm! DO NOT point the muzzle at gravel/ground or over berm while loading/unloading.
- Any safety questions or situations should immediately be brought to the R.O. and match director. It is always better to ask than to guess!
- Ammo. No magnum, no steel (duck loads), or turkey load shotshells! It is hard on our targets and more expensive for you. Not to mention LOUD! 🙂 Slugs should be less than 1500fps. Cheap stuff works great if it runs in your gun.
- NO PARKING LOT SHOW AND TELL! SAFE AREAS ONLY NO AMMO IN SAFE AREAS.
What to Bring?
- 1st things 1st, bring some water (cooler?) and a snack or two.
- Bring some work gloves for helping before and after the match. Volunteer sport! No one is getting paid out here! The Match Director will be there at 7 am, please come help set up before 7:30am (if you can’t make it before 7:30, get here when you can). Everyone is required to tear down all stages, or just your last stage if all the other stages are already torn down. We all what to get home A.S.A.P. on a Saturday after the blasting is done! It takes 30min if everyone pitches in!
- Usually less but experienced shooters bring…100 rds pistol, 100 rds rifle 75 rds shot and 10 rds slugs. Always bring extra, sometimes you may have to re-shoot a stage.
- A pistol – min 3 magazines with 2 or 3 mag pouches, secure belt, and secure side holster (you will be moving with a loaded pistol in your belt, “dropsies” of a loaded pistol is a match disqualification.
- A shotgun – with some type of ammo carrier (belt shell carrier, sidesaddle, ammo belt, arm belt, or combo (I recommend belt ammo carrier or chest/waist “2/4 loader” rig)…. or you can use your pockets…not too fast though) and an Empty Chamber Indicator (ECI).
- A rifle – min 2 magazines (usually 30rd). Rifle mag holders are nice (not required) and an Empty Chamber Indicator (ECI).
3 Gun Etiquette and Expectations of the Participates
- Help reduce the non-shooting time for everyone at a match. Some stages require more re-set than others, especially 3 GUN. Don’t stand around while others are re-setting. Etiquette is that the 2 Range Officers and the scorekeeper are scoring the stage and handling firearms, the shooter is reviewing their scores, the shooter on deck is rehearsing, and the last shooter is reloading his mags/belt ammo holders, everyone else should be pasting, resetting movers/steel, and picking up brass. One person not doing their part on a smaller squad can back up the whole match.
- Be aware of who is shooting next and try not to distract them from getting ready to shoot. You should know the shooting order. Be ready to shoot. Have your mags/belt loaded and be mentally ready to go. If for some reason you are not ready let the RO know and ask to be skipped. This is OK every now and then (the shooter behind you may not be ready because they were expecting you to shoot)
- If you get Disqualified for the 180 or unsafe firearm handling. Stay and help out with re-set and tear down. We all get DQ’d if you shoot long enough. It’s embarrassing, but not the end of the world.
