The buzz that this event has generated has a lot of people talking. And many have submitted questions. We hope this list will help answer some questions you may have, but if it doesn't, please contact us and we'll get you squared away.

What kind of shooting will be done at camp?
This will be an all-inclusive 3-Gun Camp. We will be shooting handguns at steel targets, working on drawing from the holster and speed shooting, rifle shooting from various positions, and shotgun shooting at reactive targets. We will also be working on transitions from one firearm to another.

I am a fairly new shooter. Is this camp for me?
This event will focus on safety first.

None of us will ever be as accomplished as the pro shooters who will be leading the camp. In my opinion, when it comes to the shooting sports your only competition is you. It does not matter who is the fastest or what their times may be, your goal is to be better than you were yesterday.
The group of pros we have lined up are currently some of the best 3-Gun and pistol shoots in the nation. Having an opportunity for them to give you little tips that could make you better is quite the opportunity.

That being said, this event is for those with a firm grasp of the fundamentals and are comfortable drawing from the holster in a safe manner. It does not matter if you have never shot a 3-Gun competition before. This group of pros will give you the fundamentals to really get into the game. If you currently shoot 3-Gun, this is an opportunity for you to get some tips from those who have some titles under their belt to help you get better.

The last day will be a skills competition, putting teams and individuals against one another in a shoot-off for speed. The old adage amongst shooters is, "slow is smooth and smooth is fast." You cannot miss fast enough, so focus on being accurate and have fun.

If this is you, by all means join us.

How much ammo will I need to bring?
9mm ammo will be provided, however if you are bring a different caliber please bring a minimum of 1,000 rounds. It must be lead, full-metal jacket or frangible. It cannot contain any steel. We will also provide .223 caliber rifle ammo and 12 gauge shotgun ammo.

Is there any arrangement/compensation for those of us who shoot a caliber other than 9mm?
Currently, 9mm, .223 cal and 12 gauge is the only ammunition available. You may bring your own, but no compensation will be available.

I do not want to bring my own gun. Will there be one I can borrow?
Yes, we will have a few handguns available. Please contact us and let us know in advance what you will need. We will also have rifles and shotguns to use along with the proper 3-Gun equipment to help you get started.
