Multi Gun (or more commonly known as 3 Gun) competition is one of the fastest growing shooting sports in the country.
The reason for the name is related to the use of 3 separate firearms – a modern sporting rifle (MSR), that is, a rifle built on an AR-platform; a pistol; and a shotgun. These matches generally involve courses where the shooter must move through different stages and engage targets in a variety of different positions. Each stage will generally require the use of different firearms and require the shooter to transition between them.
The targets might include clay pigeons, cardboard silhouettes, steel targets of varying sizes and anything else the match organizer designates as a target. Distances of the targets might vary from 1 yard to 500 yards or anything in between. The shooter who hits the most targets — and avoids certain “no shoot” ones — in the least amount of time is the winner.
