World War II Match and the Beginner’s Intro to 3Gun - Sunday, November 20

It’s the World War II match because the all of the arrays are 8 shot neutral for Garands, 1911s, and pump shotguns. There is a separate division for WW2 arms.

This is the Beginner’s match because you don’t need any special equipment to compete. Bring whatever you have and you will be fine. You don’t even need to bring long guns - if all you bring is your USPSA rig, you’ll be able to borrow shotguns and rifles.

There will be tables and barrels placed throughout the stages where you can place your spare shells and rifle mags if you think you need them. No special belt equipment to carry them is necessary.

There will be rifles and shotguns provided on every stage for anyone to use. No shotgun reloads are required. Just grab and shoot. Bring 12 gauge and 223/556 if you want to shoot the range guns.

Available Divisions:​
  • WWII - 1911 (any caliber), pump shotgun (any gauge), and a Garand (8 shot clips)​
  • 3Gun - Any centerfire pistol, any shotgun, and any rifle (rimfire rifle ok)​
    • Sign up in here if you want to use the provided shotguns and rifles.​
  • PCC - you will use your pistol caliber carbine for all targets (aerial bonus not available)​
  • 2Gun/1Gun - any centerfire rifle or pistol (aerial bonus not available) (no accommodation for distance if you choose to use pistol for everything)​

If it isn't clear - you don't need any special gear to shoot this match.

You can shoot it with no belt on whatsoever!


There will be tables and barrels throughout the stages for you to put your guns on/in (even pistol) and there will be barrels and tables available for you place mag/clips/shells for you to use along the way.

You can even borrow guns if you want to so you don't have to clean yours. Just bring ammo to shoot. I suggest figuring out who you want to share with beforehand so you can be sure to squad together.

Looks fun but I'm a bit confused ; does the shooter stand in or outside the yellow lines ; are there specific spots from which the various targets are to be engaged?

Inside the lines are the only areas where you can fire a shot. If there are three yellow lines, then the wall will be the other line.
Outside the lines will be a penalty.

You'll be able to see all the targets from point(s) inside the yellow lines/fault lines.

3 lines? Now really confused.
But unless something comes up between now and Friday, I will be there. Running and gunning with a "U.S. Rifle, Cal. .30, M1". Damn sounds like fun.

No you don't want me to shoot without a belt. No one wants to see that happen. I've lost a lot of weight the last 3 years or so.

How many hits required on paper targets? Assuming steel targets will fall?
Yes, all steel falls, with the exception of the spinner. It has to flip over to be neutralized.

And yes Bryon is correct. If you are shooting in the WW2 division, and if you are loading with 8 round clips or some equivalent in your rifle, and shooting a single stack 1911 (9mm included), we will call that heavy and it will only require one hit per paper anywhere.

If you are shooting normal outlaw 3Gun, it's two hits anywhere or one Alpha/Bravo for paper targets.

Stages 2 and 5 are likely the ones you are concerned with.

But no, other than requiring you to be inside the fault lines to engage targets, stages have to be presented as-is to the shooter to figure out how he wants to complete the course of fire. The only reason I will declare a specific shooting position or spot would be for safety, and I don't foresee this being an issue with the stages here.

Like Bryon said, you have to be inside the fault lines when you break a shot or you will get a 5 second penalty. Also like he said, it's not very difficult and the targets will be clearly available. We tore up some walls at the carbine matches from muzzle blast so I am trying to design stages where that doesn't happen, so there shouldn't be too much awkward leaning like there has been.

On stages 2 and 5, you will enter a shooting area, shoot the available targets, and then you have to move to another shooting area to engage other targets.

More questions: what ammo is recommended for shotguns to engage plates? Buckshot I'm assuming. And is FMJ ok for the 1911 shooting plates? If so, are prescription glasses considered sufficient safety glasses? I won't be able to see without mine & don't have safety goggles that would fit over them. Sorry for so many questions but don't want to drive 1 1/2 hours and not have what I need to shoot the match.

No you want birdshot. 7 1/2 or 8. No buckshot or slugs in this match.

Yes FMJ is perfect for pistol.

Those glasses will be fine. Plenty of people are in your predicament.

Keep the questions coming. The more that are asked the less unknown there will be.
