Easton now three gun only as of march.

Recommended Posts

I love mine, functions flawlessly with any load.  I have the 24" barrel.  Controls take a little getting used.  Stoeger M-3000 is the hot ticket ATM.  There are some very good threads over at Brian Enos on both.

We need to all find a friend who lives in PA to buy and keep mags for us to share at the matches.  A surefire 60 round mag split 5 ways and shared would be awesome

 

...or split a storage locker somewhere on the way with 24hr access!  this can be ur stash spot for non NJ legal parts.  (just dont bring them here)

Or what if three people going to easton. One person has all of the springs. One person has the followers and one has all of the housings( the mag) or whatever you want to call it. When we get there we meet up and assemble them and vice versa on the way back.

 

Edit. Look how friggin ridiculous this is in nj.

Giving credit where credit is due - this was e-mailed to Golf Battery, who then forwarded it to me. He's still working for a living, so in the interest of speed, I thought I'd go ahead and post it. This will posted on the EFGA website shortly.

 

From the MD for Easton 3-gun:

 

Easton 3 Gun

3 Gun is an exciting sport and one of the fastest growing shooting sports in America. Competitors use a rifle, shotgun and handgun to complete courses of fire. 3 Gun Nation is one organization promoting the sport.

2016 will be a trial year for 3 Gun at Easton Fish and Game. We will use 3 Gun Nation Rules, and if the year goes well, we plan to become an affiliated
club. The 3 Gun Nation rules are here -
http://3gunnation.com/club_series/rules  

and these rules will be used at Easton. Please read the rules to avoid being disqualified after travelling to a match.

Matches will be on the third Saturday of the month. Setup will begin at 8am, check in at 10:30 and match briefing at 11am.

 

Equipment:

At this time, we will only be running Practical and Factory divisions.

Shooters will require an AR type of rifle chambered in 223 Remington/5.56 NATO. Please note rule 4.1 and 4.1.1. No steel core or steel cased ammunition will be allowed. Neither EFGA or the match directors want their steel targets damaged. (Rule 4.1.1 levies a $100 fine per steel target
damaged by steel core ammunition) For club series matches, pistol caliber carbines are also allowed.

The handgun will be 9mm minimum caliber and will be carried in a belt holster. We plan to use Newbold self-healing targets and therefore do not
allow hollowpoint bullets as they shorten the life of the targets.

Shotguns will be 20 or 12 gauge using lead shot size 7 ½, 8 or 9, 00 buckshot and/or slugs. Shooting a shot target with a slug or buckshot will result in a match disqualification. Also see rule 4.4. Practical shotguns will start with no more than 9 shells loaded. Factory shotguns will never have more than 8 shells in the gun.

As all three guns could be used on a stage, the competitor will have to carry ammunition for all three guns on their belt.

Stages and Round Counts

There will be four stages per match. A stage will be in each of the two Special Events bays, one in the Training bay and one on the Rifle Range. The
Training bay stage will be handgun and/or shotgun only.

It is unlikely that more than 30 rifle rounds will be required per stage, however a mandatory magazine change could be required. No more than 100
rifle rounds should be required for a match.

It is unlikely that more than 20 pistol rounds will be required per stage. No more than 100 pistol rounds should be required.

It is unlikely that more than 20 shotgun shells will be required per stage. Slug and buckshot targets may be used on the rifle range in addition to shot
targets. No more than 100 shotshells, 10 buckshot shells and 10 slugs should be required.

Stage Design

Stages will almost always require use of more than one gun and the competitor will have to decide how to engage the targets. Targets will be designated to be engaged with certain guns in the stage briefing.

We plan to use 3 Gun Nation cardboard targets for pistol and rifle. Rifle only Newbold targets will be red. Rifle Range steel rifle targets will be white.

Shotgun only shot targets will be orange and will include stationary orange clay birds, orange Newbold shotgun targets and orange steel.

Pistol only Newbold targets will be yellow. Steel targets for pistol or shotgun will be white.

Once a competitor has engaged all of targets for one gun, that gun will be grounded, see the rules, and another gun will be used for the appropriate
targets. "Dump buckets" will be provided for grounding a gun. The stage briefing will be specific but generally if there are no shooting positions down range of a dump bucket, the gun will have to have the safety engaged before grounding. If there is a shooting position down range of a grounding
location, then the gun will have to be empty before grounding.

Guns may be staged in pickup locations or carried with slings as specified by the stage briefing.

Match Registration

Match registration will be online pre-registration only on www.shootnscoreit.com . As we do not have time to teach new shooters safety while setting up the stages, shooters will be required to be classified in a shooting sport. 3 Gun Nation classification will be preferred, however we will accept ICORE, IDPA, IPSC or USPSA classification as well. If time permits, we will keep one Special Events bay stage setup after a match is complete and qualify new shooters. This will not be available at the March match.

Vlad - 

 

With the IDPA matches there, Ken (the MD) usually didn't open registration until the week of the match. You will probably have to check on the EFGA web site for when registration opens. Once you have registered and shot a match, you will be on Ken's mailing list and you'll be notified by e-mail about upcoming matches and registration. At least that's how it worked with IDPA.

 

Adios,

As much as I would love to support any club getting started in 3 gun I don't want to burn a whole day just to shoot 4 stages with that low of a round count. 

better than nothing.

Is easton capable of holding more stages? Maybe ken is just being precaucious. Then expanding from. Honestly idk. Let me know.

OB had a 2gun match yesterday. 10-12 per squad, 5 squads. My squad tore down an left around 430pm. Match started around 1015am. If he can, great. But it could be a time issue.

    • Well, I need every frame I can get for a 280hz monitor. Currently running 3900X, 32GB RAM, x570 board, GTX 1080, and a m.2 drive. Just barely hacking it in some competitive FPS games. Not netting the 280 fps without dumbing down some settings, and I only drop them to a point, and even with that, I barely hit 280. Most games I hover around 120-150 maxed out settings. My card is dated, but I was waiting on the 30 series. I really want a 3080 or 6800 XT. The additional frames you get with the 5000 series CPUs has made that an easy choice for me as well. All I have to do is upgrade the BIOS and swap out the CPU.  Then I’ll throw the 3900X in a new build for the wife.  
    • Not sure why you’d need a 5000 series cpu.  Want....sure.  Need? If you’re gaming, a 3800x or 3900x is more than fine. I’d focus on a gpu and better display. Maybe you render stuff with Maya?  I’d use Zync’s hosted rendering and get a 24 hour job done in 24 minutes.  You get 300 host-hours free on sign up and the only limit is the job can only be spread across 50 virtual machines. If you just want the latest stuff and have money to burn..that’s cool too. I just built a new system today. Bought some of what I needed at Microcenter in Conshohocken, PA. 3800xt cpu EVGA 2080Ti  (Newegg) 32 Gig ram 1 TB M.2 ssd Asus x570 motherboard HP Omen 27” 165 Hz 4K display.  (Bestbuy) This display is incredible.  Noticeable difference side by side with a 144 Hz Dell Gsync. Already had a new case and PS.   The total cost of what I got at Microcenter was actually a little less than NewEgg.Prices But if you want the 3000 series Nvidia gpus or the new AMD cpus, you’re going to wait and also pay a premium.  If you wanted a super high end gpu, I’d SLI a pair of 2070 Supers.  But even that, imho..isn’t worth it.
    • Do you think they might also bring back the Model 15 one day?
    • Not true.... You cannot shoot alone and rent a firearm..... if you bring your own firearm you may shoot alone   https://www.rtsponline.com/range-rules/    
    • At RTSP, and many other ranges, the policy is that you can't shoot alone without an FID.
