Port Elgin has started a three gun section with great interest from club members. It is in the starting stages as Three Gun is new to most shooters and care must be taken to introduce the sport and ALWAYS HAVING SAFETY COME FIRST..
Three gun can be shot with a .22lr pistol or rifle, but is mainly shot with centre fire pistols , rifles and 12 gauge shotguns.
Almost any semi auto pistol or rifle will work for this sport, pump or semi auto 12 gauge shotgun is also needed.
It is a timed event and so it becomes very addictive because we always want to do better on the next try. (Human nature).
The club has invested in some steel to shoot at for rim fire and for centre fire. Care must be taken when setting up steel targets to make sure rimfire targets are shot with rimfire caliber and centre fire targets are shot with centre fire. Targets can be damaged if shot with the wrong caliber. Also targets must be set up inside wooden shrouds to catch bullet fragment. Targets are never to be setup any closer than 10 meters from shooting line.
As this is new to most of us, there is coaching involved to setting up and stay safety conscious. NOT EVERYONE WILL HAVE A KEY TO LOCK UP UNTIL SAFETY AND SETUP COACHING IS MET.
3 GUN IS DONE ON THURSDAY NIGHTS @ 6:00PM
