NRA Sanctioned 3-Gun Match Moves to Kentucky
FAIRFAX, Va. -- The Sabre Defence Blue Ridge Mountain 3-Gun Championship, NRA's second officially-sanctioned three-gun competition, will be held April 24-26, 2009 in Park City, Kentucky at the Rockcastle Shooting Center.
Approximately 170 shooters will compete in four different classes: Open, Tactical Scope, Tactical Iron, and Heavy Metal. During the competition, shooters will move through ten stages of fire set in the foothills of Appalachia.
This 3-gun competition was previously held in Virginia, but has moved to the newly-constructed Rockcastle Shooting Center at Park Mammoth Resort in Southern Kentucky.
"Shooting in natural terrain, outside the confinement of a 'square range,' has always been more enjoyable for me when I participate in shooting competitions. Therefore, when I began looking for locations to hold the Blue Ridge Mountain 3-Gun Championship, having the competition over natural terrain was the main criterion, and one that can be hard to fill," said Match Director Andrew Horner. "Fortunately, Rockcastle Shooting Center is able to meet such needs."
In addition to Sabre Defence, the Blue Ridge Mountain 3-Gun Championship has a long list of sponsors including LaRue Tactical, Mike Gibson Manufacturing, WileyX Eyewear, Barrett Firearms, DPMS Panther Arms, JP Enterprises, and a host of other industry supporters.
