Starlight 3-gun Match Update
It’s not often that we get to shoot matches at night. In biathlon we had races all the time in at night under the lights but with 3-gun when there is a night match everything kicks off after the sun goes down and the lights go out. I’ve done one other major match at night up in Oregon and had a blast. This drew some of the best shooters in the country for what is promised to be some very fast stages and some head to head shoot offs at the end. They even fed dinner to all competitors every night and had a band playing all night into the wee hours of the am. I had some really great stages and some ok stages which put me in 3rd going into the last stage. I went for it on the last stage to try and move up and although I had a really great time, I missed a pistol paper target and was penalized for that. The penalty moved me down to 5th place Lady. Although I am bummed that I missed that pistol target, I don’t regret going for it on that last stage. Sometimes you have to take chances in order for things to work out. It didn’t pan out this time, but maybe next time it will. Needless to say, it was a phenomenal match and I am definitely looking forward to shooting it next year! I just want to add a huge Thank you to MGM Targets for giving me one of their sponsored shooters slots so I could shoot this match. Also Thank you to Crimson Trace for all the lights and lasers from the last night match that I used in this match!
