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.

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.

Match Flavor Very MN, shotgun targets were difficult, heavy and far away
Terrain 7 bay stages, 3 that were multiple bays, long range was just in a large bay. 2 natural terrain - jungle runny stages.
Skillz Utilized precision, not much hoser stuff, pistol targets were far, shotgun targets were far, uncomfortable positions, getting crammed inside small areas, shotgun loading, clay targets with rifle.
Farthest Shot and/or # of long range targets 1 375, 3 275, 3 175, then reengage 75 yards forward
Logistics Check in and get your t-shirt, looked pretty straightforward. Main match seemed well organized. RO Match was very disorganized.
Venue Rifle bays out to 400 yards, competition bays with 20 ft berms, 5 stand, sporting clays, trap & skeet, and 3D archery. SAND EVERYWHERE!
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.

Please listen with an open mind and let me know what you think in the comments below.
