Dave Horn is on the show this week to discuss the heartburn topic that rarely gets talked about in public... What is the true cost of 3-Gun? Dave and his wife Amy dropped by The 3-Gun Show Studio in Lakewood Colorado after the three of us shot on the same squad at the 2018 Wyoming Governor’s Match. We had coordinated before the match that we would each track costs and then compare them on the show.

This was truly eye-opening for me so listen in to see what we spent!

So what do you think of our costs? Do you do it cheaper? Do you do it more expensive? Let us know in the comments!

Ryan Cleckner, host of the Going Ballistic Podcast, is one of the most practical long range shooting teachers as he is able to put complex topics into terms that anyone can understand. He is also lawyer, professor and a serial entrepreneur in the firearms space, creating such programs as Rocket FFL which is a step-by-step program for you to get an FFL. On this week's podcast we discuss the active shooter response solution for schools and businesses that he has created in Mayday Safety, his two books "Long Range Shooting Handbook" and "Firearm Safety is No Accident" and then we get into the meat of our topic which is long range shooting as it applies to precision competitions and 3-Gun.

We also slay some .224 Valkyries, talk about short vs long barrels and why 6.5 Creedmoor and MRAD should be at the top of your modern gun-buying list. All in this week's episode of The 3-Gun Show.

The Big Ben Blast & Dash was a match of many firsts. The first Run & Gun held in Colorado, my first match as Assistant match Director and possibly the first 3-Gun Run & Gun match. Run & Gun matches are usually rifle and pistol but as 3-Gunners we thought it was important to include the shotgun when designing this match. Match Director Mike Griswold of Rocky Mountain Targets is on this week's podcast and we run down the good, the bad and the ugly of putting together a new match for our Colorado shooters.

This was a really cool experience for me because it gave me an enormous appreciation for the amount of work and dedication that goes into a match. It was also fun working with sponsors like Vortex optics, JP Rifles, LAG Tactical, Stoeger & many, many more from a completely different perspective than I usually do with the podcast.

Joel Turner is on the podcast this week to discuss the mission of the US Army Marksmanship Unit and shooting topics like stage planning, mental game and why he’s never leaving Open Division. 

Joel came into the Unit from a non-traditional path, which is a great story, and then he learned competitive shooting from the best of the world. Find out how he did it in this episode of The 3-Gun Show

Jake Latola is our special field correspondent for this Match Recon of the 2017 Fort Benning Multi-Gun Challenge. Set on the Army Marksmanship Unit ranges at Fort Benning, Georgia, the match favored both speed and accuracy in equal quantities. Each stage had a movie theme and Jake describes them in detail in this podcast.

Plus, Jake and I get into a strong stage tactics discussion where he walks through the math behind shooting a stage and how to determine the proper stage plan as a result. Jake is very methodical in his approach to competitive shooting and teaches just as much as he provides intel on the match. So take some notes and enjoy this match recon podcast!

Match Flavor - Is there a theme? Rifle heavy, shotgun heavy, etc? What sets it apart from other matches? Is there something only this match has? Themed match. 2017 was movie themed, including John Wick, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Rambo, HEAT, and many others. Each stage had elements or props that related back to the themed movie. Very fast paced and technical stages with "speed checks" where things get tight or targets get small. This match is known to have "removed earth" stages, such as a flooded trench where the shooter pulled themselves along in a boat to engage targets, and in year's past have excavated trenches within the COF.      
Terrain - Bay stages or natural terrain? Mixture? Bay Stages. Some bays out to 300 yds, but most within 50-75 yds.      
Skillz Utilized - Awkward positions, heavy focus on quad loading, offhand rifle, slugs at distance, long Pistol shots, crazy obstacles, etc Speed and focus! Target presentations were mixed and ranged from hosing paper to suddently posting up to take precise shots. Rifle targets were inside of 300 yds, but small enough and from awkward positions such that they were very challenging.      
Farthest Shot and/or # of long range targets Rifle had < 5 targets beyond 250 yds and ~20 from 100-250 yds. Furthest slug was 60 yds. Furthest pistol was 60 yds.      
Logistics- Checkin, scoring, prize table walk, etc Stages located on three different ranges. Checking was at the Action Shooting Team's home range (Krilling). After checking-in, shooter received a "swag pack" with T-shirt, rifle mag, Ft. Benning MG Challenge Coin, and other items packed in a .30 cal ammo can. Shipped ammo had been relocated from the address it was shipped to back to the Krilling Range. It was unclear where to locate shipped ammo if you didn't ask during check-in. Each range location had ample restrooms and food vendor offerings. Awards ceremony took place under large tent at Krilling Range. After prize table, there was an "accounting checkpoint" where the shooter checked their prize with staff to ensure all prizes were accounted for.      
Venue - Ease of access, creative use of facility, etc It is a military base, and the shooters must respect their rules. No speeding! Access was straightforward and well-defined in pre-match communication.      
Pre-Communication - Do you receive information about what to expect at the match or any other pertinent information Yes, a packet with detailed instructions of how to enter the range beforehand was provided, as well as a detailed match book with round counts and stage diagrams. One thing that would have been nice would be a map to the various ranges utilized on base. Each range had "Fort Benning Multigun Challenge" banners at the range entrance. Once you knew where they were they were easy to see the signs, but it was also easy to overlook whlie searching for it the first time.      
Staff - How did the staff treat the shooters? Army Strong - Courteous and professional!      
Fun factor - Highly subjective, could hurt some feelings. Very fun! Every stage was so fast you wanted to shoot it again as soon as you were done!      
Funny things that happen at the match. The spent artillery round casings used for trophies may be met with raised eyebrows by TSA.
