Have you ever wondered what it was like to shoot the 3-Gun Nation Pro Match from the perspective of the competitor? Special Field Correspondent Adam Maxwell gives us a Match Recon breakdown of the Pro Match held at the 2017 Midwest Regional at Forest Lake Sportsmen's Club in Minnesota.

Adam had quite the experience and ended up moving on to the finals at 3GN Nationals but it wasn't without some challenges and tribulations.

  • Plus! What does a range officer NOT want from a competitor?
  • And more!

Advice from Heath Clevenger:

What does the RO want from a Competitor:

  • Be on time to the stage brief
  • Listen to the stage brief
  • Be ready (have all of your gear and guns) shoot when you are on deck, be waiting on the RO. DO NOT make the RO wait on you. This is the equivalent of making the entire match wait on you. 30 seconds of waiting for 200 competitors is 100 minutes of delay. This is the difference in shooting when the sun is up or shooting in the dark.
  • Tell the RO the order in which you plan to shoot long range targets
  • Understand that the time to ask questions is not on the clock!
  • If the stage is complicated or you plan to shoot a stage differently than everyone else, let the RO know your plan before you start.
  • Be nice, be patient with the RO. You are not the center of his universe.
  • Retrieve your equipment after you get done shooting
  • If you disagree with a call, if the RO makes a bad call, talk to the RO politely about your view. If you cannot come to agreement with the RO, ask politely to speak with the Range Master. Stay calm.
  • Remember, you will most likely see that RO again at another match. Do you want to make a friend or a foe?

What do Competitors want from an RO

  • To fully read and explain the stage brief the same way for every squad/ shooter
  • Fair calls with any question going to the favor of the competitor
  • To not be distracting or asking questions off the wall questions when you are getting ready to shoot
  • EQUALITY! – treat me the same a Jerry or Horner
  • Do not talk down to the competitor (Niki says guys treat her like she is stupid if they don’t know her, and thinks this happens to women often)
  • Consistency in everything, from reading he brief to making calls on long range, to paper hits
  • For the RO to remain calm when the competitor disagrees with a call that they made and/ or if they ask for the RM
  • For the RO to be calm and confident
  • To be paying attention to the task at hand, not having a conversation that distracts from competitor that is shooting or ready to shoot.
  • Guaranteed the exact same target presentation

The Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) has taken the shooting sports by storm in the last couple years but questions remain as the sport matures into its adolescent years. Many shooters report being mistreated or overly scrutinized at USPSA pistol matches. With the 2017 Lucas Oil Pistol Caliber Carbine Championship, PCC-only matches are catching on. So what is the future of PCC in 3-Gun? Adam Maxwell and I tackle this question with help from the community on this episode of The 3-Gun Show.

On This Podcast You'll Learn:

  • What would ideal PCC divisions look like?
  • How do we make room for a PCC Division without a ton of concessions and should we?
  • Is the evolution of "2x4" the future of PCC in 3-Gun?
  • Should there be a special Pistol Caliber Carbine division for nostalgic/cool guns?
  • Plus! How do you blow up a PCC?
  • And more!

This podcast is one from The 3-Gun Show archives and one of the most popular episodes ever. The first time I met Jerry Miculek in person and my first time at the NRA Whittington Center in New Mexico, he introduced me to the topic of vision in the shooting sports. What seems like such a basic concept really blew my mind and changed the way I think about the game. I have revisited this topic many times recently both on and off the show and I thought it would be fun to check back in on the topic from the master.

If you've heard this one before, listen again to see if you pick up on anything new now that you have more experience in the sport.

Plus! Listen in after the interview for some behind-the-scenes banter between Adam Maxwell and I that was recorded in between podcasts in the summer of 2017.
