Does Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) Belong In 3-Gun?

161: Does Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) Belong In 3-Gun?

The Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) has taken the shooting sports by storm in the last couple years but questions remain as the sport matures into its adolescent years. Many shooters report being mistreated or overly scrutinized at USPSA pistol matches. With the 2017 Lucas Oil Pistol Caliber Carbine Championship, PCC-only matches are catching on. So what is the future of PCC in 3-Gun? Adam Maxwell and I tackle this question with help from the community on this episode of The 3-Gun Show.

On This Podcast You’ll Learn:

  • What would ideal PCC divisions look like?
  • How do we make room for a PCC Division without a ton of concessions and should we?
  • Is the evolution of “2×4” the future of PCC in 3-Gun?
  • Should there be a special Pistol Caliber Carbine division for nostalgic/cool guns?
  • Plus! How do you blow up a PCC?
  • And more!

    Just listened to the show and well done. You guys had mentioned a holster for the pcc. Wanted to share with you my companies product. We created a holster for the AR-15 platform. Our primary focus is Mil/ Law Enforcement but it lends itself to the comp shooting world. Not able to attach pic to this but check us out at
