ATLANTA, G.A. (JANUARY 14, 2014) – The first ever all-ladies national 3-Gun major match will be hosted by Atlanta 3-Gun at the South River Gun Club on October 31 through November 1, 2014. Brownells will be the title sponsor and host of the Prize Table, Ceremony Banquet following the match.
“3-Gun is an exciting sport, and encouraging women to participate is something we believe in. That’s why Brownells agreed to be the title sponsor of the first women-only Brownells Ladies 3-Gun match.” – Matt Buckingham, President of Brownells
The match, sanctioned by 3-Gun Nation and operated under the Region Series Rules, is expected to attract 200 new and accomplished lady shooters from around the Nation. It will be set up as a Pro-Am, with ladies who have shot four or more Major matches competing in the professional division, and any lady who has shot a 3-Gun match before welcome in the Amateur division.
“I have been in this game for 30 years, and we have never been able to keep the number of women in the shooting sports sustainably high. Hopefully this match can serve as a stepping stone to create a separate 3-Gun division for the ladies, giving them a sustainable interest in the action shooting sports.” – Kay Miculek, Team Smith & Wesson, Brownells Ladies 3-Gun Assistant Match Director
The match fee will be $225, with registration opening on February 8, 2014. The match will include 9 stages, and competitors will be able to compete in the Open Division, sponsored by Beretta, or in the Tac Optics division, sponsored by Smith & Wesson.
