A 2-Gun Run & Gun match is where we find ourselves this week for our Match Recon series. This is quite the departure from the regular 3-Gun matches that we shoot throughout the year and if you’re interested in this type of match you’ll love this episode of The 3-Gun Show where we break down the 2017 We Defy Run & Gun including how to shoot a run & gun, the gear required, the feel of the match, how to prepare and what you should bring.
This was our first Run & Gun and we learned a lot about carrying gear and managing ammo over distance. North Texas Multigun always puts on a great match at the Triple C Range and this was a completely new experience for us!

Shots out to a mile, with another 1.1 miles of runout behind that target. Pavilion, real bathrooms with running water. No longer any shipping container towers as the long-range club moved out.|

|Fun factor/Dave Factor||Fun match! Not enough shooting for the time involved.|
|Funny things that happen at the match.||A lot of camo at this match, made it feel like maybe it was similar to the early days of 3-Gun. Dave used the wrong ammo AGAIN….|
