Wondering what to expect at this year’s 3GN Nationals? Then check out this conversation we had recently with 3GN Regional Series Director Larry Goedhart
The countdown is on, as we’re less than two months away from our season-ending event, 3GN Nationals, where shoot-offs will be held, National Champions crowned, and two days of epic 3-Gun competition will be held at the Clinton House in South Carolina. A high round count, long-range, natural terrain, tons of movement, and a whole lot of fun is planned for Nov. 10-11, as 3GN pulls out all the stops for this signature event.
And if you’re like most shooters, you’ll want to know what to expect from this major match. That’s why we caught up with 3GN Regional Series Director Larry Goedhart to get the skinny on what evil genius plans he has in store for Nationals.
3GN Class Shoot-Offs are planned, giving more members opportunities to experience the thrill of this elimination format.
3GN: Ok, let’s start off with long-range. How many stages will go long, how far, and what type of shooting positions should competitors be prepared for to complete the match?
LG: I’m looking for three stages with long-range. A total for around 30 targets and going out to 400 yards, using 3-Gun Nation barricades and prone positions.
3GN: That’s really awesome, and should provide a great challenge. Ok, with all that long-range, I know you’re gonna make folks move, get the heart rate up, and make those long shots even tougher. How much movement should folks expect?
LG: We will be using some bays, but as usual, I never use just one. There will be a couple of double-bay stages. I want to get some movement and shooting to get the blood pumping and then a little off-hand rifle to finish.
3GN: What’s the thousand-foot view here; just how challenging do you want this match to be?
LG: I’m looking to make Nationals just as tough as the South Regional at Arena, plus a little more. We will be using all the 3GN specialty targets to throw in some added challenges, plus a higher round count.
If you love pulling that trigger you will want to shoot this match.Larry Goedhart, 3GN Regional Series Director
3GN: Wow, it definitely sounds like 3GN Nationals will be tough, but we’re guessing you’re aiming to keep it fun as well?
LG: This should be one of the highest round-count matches in the country. The Clinton House is a great facility, and we plan to use it to the max. Off the range, the Clinton House has some extra-large grills that we plan on doing some great food on. Plan on having a great meal and some adult beverages at a meet-and-BS at the MD’s place Friday night at the Clinton House!
3GN: For those still on the fence, why they come out and shoot 3GN Nationals?
LG: Come out and shoot all those specialty targets you have only seen on the 3GN Pro Series TV. It’s going to be a great weekend, full of great shooting, great friendship and a challenging match.
Those that competed at the 3GN South Regional at Arena, expect more of the same, with long-range, natural terrain and more and 3GN Nationals!
