The Fastest-Growing Shooting Sport in the World

3 Gun matches are timed events in which competitors move through various stages engaging in targets using a pistol, rifle and shotgun. The sport is rapidly rising in popularity as it combines gun-handling skills, speed and accuracy across three different platforms. The NRA 3 Gun Experience (3GE), presented by Smith & Wesson, is designed to introduce new and intermediate shooters to the world of 3 Gun. 3GE offers you a chance to learn the sport on your own time and at your own pace.
