Gate #3 SWAG

3-gun competitions are one of the most exciting shooting sports to hit the stage in a long time. Essentially melding gun handling skills, accuracy and speed into one package, 3-gun utilizes a wide variety of skills with three firearms: rifle, pistol and shotgun.
IDPA is the use of practical equipment including full charge service ammunition to solve simulated “real world” self-defense scenarios using practical handguns and holsters that are suitable for self-defense use. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual.
The Steel Challenge is a speed shooting competition governed by the Steel Challenge Shooting Association (SCSA) that consists of eight standardized stages with steel targets, ranging in size from 10″ (25 cm) round plates to 18×24″ (45×60 cm) square plates.
Like 3 Gun, Tactical Shotgun Matches are fast paced high intensity action shooting events. Competitors load and shoot on the move through short range games, field courses and natural terrain balancing speed and accuracy.
The United States Practical Shooting Associations (USPSA) is the premier competitive shooting organization in the world. USPSA membership is your pass to compete in any USPSA or IPSC (International Practical Shooting Confederation) match anywhere in the world.
