Have you ever wondered what it was like to shoot the 3-Gun Nation Pro Match from the perspective of the competitor? Special Field Correspondent and Vortex Optics Dynamo, Adam Maxwell, gives us a Match Recon breakdown of the Pro Match held at the 2017 Midwest Regional at Forest Lake Sportsmen’s Club in Minnesota.
Adam is a fantastic story teller and had quite the experience at the match. Spoiler alert, he ended up moving on to the finals at 3GN Nationals but it wasn’t without some challenges and tribulations.
