The 2018 IPSC Shotgun world shoot has come and gone and the United States competitors have been forever changed by the experience. Lan Nguyen of Dissident Arms is on this edition of the podcast to give us his take on the experience, the game and the future of shotgunning in the US.
We’re covering the match from several different perspectives because it is such an amazing event and an opportunity to come together with people just like us from around the world, forget all the silly politics and play a game that we all love.
Thanks for listening! Thanks to Lan for being such a great guest on the podcast!
Open Shotgun World Champion Josh Froelich and Open Shotgun Shoot Off World Champion Scott Greene are on this edition of the 3-Gun Show podcast to discuss their recent trip to France for the 2018 Shotgun World Shoot.
We start from the beginning with why they chose to shoot the IPSC match, how each set up and executed a practice regimen and what international travel with guns was like. Then we get into the mindset of playing on the world stage, Pro-hacking PractiScore stats and what Scott and Josh's individual titles mean to each of them.
Thanks for listening! Thanks to Scott and Josh for being awesome guests on the podcast!
The Nordic Vortex Tri-Gun is a storied match that was started by DPMS and through some political difficulties at their original range turned into a shotgun-only match. That carried on for a number of years and spread the shotgun culture throughout the practical shooters of Minnesota.
The Tri-Gun has been resurrected as a 3-Gun match at its new home of Forest Lake Sportsmen's Club.
Don't expect a lot of hoser targets or easy shots at this match, they put you to the test with pistol and, of course, shotgun. Find out more by listening to this Match Recon.

|Pre-Communication||Email came out 2 weeks in advance with rules, round count, self squadding info, squad matrix etc. These were later given to shooters in the form of a match booklet.|
|Staff||One RO was a close rider. One of 3 organizers was a complete loose cannon.|
|Fun factor/Dave Factor||Stages were pretty good other than the Terminator one. Hot Holster, Getting inside small pallets.|
|Funny things that happen at the match.||I whooped Becky's booty on Stage 5, Diamond mine. RO match in the woods was completely different, a good reminder how difficult it is to place well as an RO.|
This was the most difficult Match Recon that I've done to date. I had high hopes going into the Wyoming Magpul Governor's Match and was very disappointed in both the match and the match administrators, Competition Dynamics.
One of the biggest problems in 3-Gun is that everyone seems afraid to "tell it like it is" when something goes wrong. When a match is terrible or a product is bad people just seem to clam up and say nothing. I've heard stories of repercussions for speaking up- sponsorship can be pulled, you can get blackballed from certain matches or get a reputation as a troublemaker.
I owe it to you guys as listeners of The 3-Gun Show to tell you the truth so you can make good choices on where you spend your hard earned entertainment dollars.
I believe in the vision that the Wyoming Governor's office has for their match and it was a very cool experience to watch Governor Matt Mead speak before the prize table.
