3 Gun Shoot and Pinecone Range BBQ Wrap Up

posted Jun 6, 2016, 11:10 PM by Sunshine Coast Rod and Gun Club   [ updated Jun 9, 2016, 9:28 PM ]

Over 15,000 rounds of ammunition was sent down range this weekend at our Pinecone Range.

The Redneck 3 Gun Shoot and BBQ was a big success this weekend with a number of out of town competitors joining us for the first time.

Congratulations to the winners Brian McCoy (Open), Kris Hopkins (Tactical), Thom White (Iron Sights) and Jaime McLennan (Ladies). Lever Arms of Vancouver won the 1st Annual Gun Store Team Trophy.

The club would like to thank all the volunteers and express appreciation to the following for their unexpected and generous donations: Buck Fever, Lever Arms, Reliable Gun and Buck Fever.

In this 3 Gun Tactical match competitors used three different firearms -- a modern sporting rifle, that is, a rifle built on an AR-platform; a pistol; and a shotgun. Targets are a combination of reactive steel, paper, moving/sliding targets anything else the match organizer designates as a target, such as water bottles on this hot weekend, resulting in some wet shooters. Distances of the targets varied from 1 yard to 300 yards. The shooter who hits the most targets -- and avoids certain "no shoot" ones -- in the least amount of time is the winner.  The Sunshine Coast 3 Gun Competition is known as a Redneck match as it is not associated with a sanctioning body such as IPSC or USPSA.
