Challenging both mentally and physically, 3-Gun, or
Multi-Gun is often considered the ultimate shooting sport.
In a 3-Gun match a competitor must navigate through
multiple stages of fire, engaging targets, and being scored
on both speed and accuracy. Stages require competitors to
switch between their various weapons - a rifle, shotgun, and
handgun. Stages often require speed reloads, shooting on
the move, weak-hand shooting, use of unfamiliar
"pickup-guns" that may be placed throughout a stage,
engaging moving targets, shooting in low-light situations,
and carrying out any variety of tasks that may be included in
the scenario. Additional noise, light, and elemental factors
may be included to add to the high-stress situation and
further enhance the challenge.
The CCMU competes in a variety of 3-Gun competitions annually.

south Texas requires competitors to carry all necessary

breathing, all the while cooking under the late summer
