With three 3GN Clubs putting quality matches on the ground, West Virginia has become a top state for 3-Gun Fun!
The Mountaineer State, though relatively small in size, has become a big attraction in terms of 3-Gun, especially for 3GN-sanctioned Club Series matches. Three Clubs, Owl’s Roost Practical Shooting, White Horse 3-Gun and Beckley Gun Club, are putting on consistent, quality 3-Gun matches for their members. And this weekend offers two 3GN Club Series matches, a stone’s throw apart, with two even bigger matches on the horizon, making West Virginia a destination spot for 3-Gun.
This Saturday, Owl’s Roost, located in Linn, WV, will hold a four-stage match, including two 3GN Classifiers, “Around the Horn” and “Around the Horn-2,” along with two additional stages. Round count is listed at 100. All 3GN divisions will be recognized for this event.
On Sunday, White Horse, located in Buckhannon, WV, will host a five-stage, 100-round match, featuring one 3GN Classifier, “Movement,” along with four Outlaw-style stages. Bringing “plenty of slugs” is recommended. The match is scheduled to begin at 9 AM.
