142: Match Recon Rockcastle 3 Man 3 Gun Presented by Samson Pro and DoubleStar (2017)

Rockcastle Shooting Center is the setting for this Match Recon and I shoot the annual 3-Man 3-Gun that Bryan Ray and Brian Vaught put on as a “thank you” to the shooting community that has given them so much. This match is always so much fun because it has so much team coordination, strategy and shooting going on. Once again I got picked up on a team that needed a third guy and I got to meet some great new people.

In this episode you will learn how to prepare to shoot next year’s Rockcastle 3 Man 3 Gun including some hot tips I probably should have kept quiet.
