Updates for the Fantasy 3-Gun League including new prizes!
Inspired by the once popular “Who’s The Best 3-Gunner” posts by Jesse Tischauser and a desire to add some more fun to being a Practical Shooter when you’re not at a match, we offer you The 3-Gun Show’s Fantasy 3-Gun League.
Adam Maxwell is on the show this week and we outline a fun new game to enjoy in the world of competitive shooting complete with rules, handicaps and prizes thanks to IWI, Vortex Optics and Atlas Gunworks.

Finishing up on the Q&A we started two episodes ago, Dave answers your pressing questions from Instagram. After that we discuss some of the major feedback that we got on the proposed New 3-Gun Gear Changes for the Big-3 divisions. Whether you agree or disagree, find out what your fellow shooters think in this episode of The 3-Gun Show.
So after years of success in Tac Ops or Limited, you're thinking of switching to Open Division and you don't know where to start. Wouldn't it be great if you had an Open Champion that you could get advice from?
That's exactly where Forest Lathrop is right now so we enlisted multi-Champion Scott Greene to give all of us the insider information on what it really takes to be successful in Open Division.
After three years and two IPSC World Shoots in the Division, Scott Greene has some things figured out and we learn them all in this episode of The 3-Gun Show.
This week's podcast is an Audience Q&A! I figured after last week's recommendation of new divisions and the great feedback that I got on the podcast format that I'd do another solo podcast and this time answer your questions. So I took to Instagram to round up some topics and picked several from the few dozen I received.
Listen in, I know you'll like it!
I am going to run down Limited, Tac-Ops and Open divisions and outline how we can bring more people to matches while once again making 3-Gun the cutting edge of shooting technology development.

This week's special guest is Donnie Flowe, proprietor of Stage Zero Shooting Supply, Match Director of the Microtech Pro-Am and much more!
Match Director of the NRL Hunter match "Buffalo Bill's Revenge," Collin Fossen, is on the podcast this week to discuss innovation in the precision shooting sports, NRL's incredibly popular new NRL Hunter matches and what to expect for anyone that wants to try one out.
Adam Maxwell is on the show this week to recant the tale of the 2021 IWI 3 Man, 3 Gun at Topton. A team match that has inspired so many other team matches across the country.
We discuss the ins and outs of travel to the range, what to expect from the Topton match and how to prepare for it. Plus we talk about how to choose your teammates and what the special duties of a multigun match teammate actually include.
New this week is a little round table with Forest Lathrop, Chadd Torres and your host, Dave Hartman, where we discuss the 2021 Gadsden Shotgun Championship. We cover what went right, what went wrong and give each other a hard time for every little mistake as you'd only expect good friends to do.
Chadd and I have made a few trips out to the Gadsden Shooting Center in Iberia, Missouri to shoot this springtime favorite but this was Forest's first tango with the match. Find out what we thought of the stages, shaking the rust off of our gear and how we managed to find enough ammo to shoot in April of 2021.

Friend of the show, Chad Francis is on the podcast and we discuss the high price of ammo and... Well pretty much the high price of everything else.
You may know Chad as the Match Director for the Gadsden Shotgun Championship and Generation III Gun, two great matches that take place at Chad's range in Iberia, MO. Chad has a long career in 3-Gun and after raising a daughter in the shooting sports, he understands a thing or two about minding where you spend your entertainment dollars.
Adam Maxwell is back on the show to give us an update on Open Division. A lot has happened since we did the "Breaking Open" podcast and it appears that Tac-Ops may no longer be the division stacked with the most talent...
With the proliferation of red-dot pistols and box-fed shotguns, like that from Dissident Arms, Open Division has gotten a renewed energy over the last few years. With growth at popular matches going from 12 shooters to upwards of 50 or more, the division is certainly hot. But is it now the premier division? Adam and I discuss the players, the gear and the why.
Don't forget to come shoot with us at the Jeff Kirkwold memorial 3-Gun! Sign up on Practiscore.
What do you think? Is Tac-Ops no longer the most competitive division?
With all the craziness of 2020 coming to a close and a new year beginning, AMax and I try to dig through the rubble and figure out exactly what happened in 2020.
Then we get into goals for 2020, how to mitigate the effects of an ammo shortage and answer the question, "where are all the guns?"
