Manatee 3 Gun doesn't fall under USPSA or 3GN rules. We a blended approach to the rules for our monthly 3 gun (Rifle, Shotgun and Pistol) matches on the 2nd Saturday of every month and the 5th Saturday whenever a month has 5 Saturdays. We are located on the West coast of Florida at Manatee Gun and Archery Club, 1805 Logue Road, Myakka City, FL. Sign in starts at 8:00, safety briefing starts at 9:00, with shooting to follow. Cost is $25 for club members and $30 for non-members (pay at 3 gun sign in, NOT main club house).

Disclaimer - If you come out and shoot one of our matches, you'll be hooked and want to do it every time.

Two matches for February 2020

We will be having two matches in February of 2020, the regular monthly match on the 8th and the 5th Saturday "sniper" match on the 29th.  Sign in starts at 8:15 and safety briefing at 9:00.

January 11th Match Has Been Cancelled

The regularly scheduled January 11th match has been cancelled.  It is anticipated that the range modifications will be completed prior to the February match so that we can get back on schedule.

For more details as to why the match is cancelled please see the email below from Mark:


Shooters,

As some of you already know-there was recently an allegation that rounds were leaving the MGAC range and landing on the property to the north of MGAC.

I response to that allegation and communication with authorities from Manatee County MGAC will be implementing some new guidelines for use of the ranges, particularly as it relates to the use of steel targets and steel target placement.

MGAC has dealt with this same issue in years past and it is important that it be addressed to avoid any political pressure that would result in the potential closure of MGAC.

It is yet to be finalized as to exactly what those new guidelines will be, but suffice it to say they will impact the way in which we design our stages, and what equipment specifications we will need to adhere to.

This alleged incident did not occur during one of our matches and the Board of Directors at MGAC are committed to the continued support of our
3 gun discipline along with the other disciplines active at MGAC.

We are communicating with the MGAC officers and board in this regard and will have more to report as this develops.

At this juncture we cannot be assured that everything will be resolved prior to our next scheduled match so we will provide an update on match status via email, and will also be posting on the Manatee 3 Gun FB page as well as the Manatee3gun.com webpage.

So please stay-tuned.

Marty Meek

November 2019 to Have 2 Matches

November 2019 has 5 Saturdays so this month we will be having 2 matches.  Or normal monthly match on November 9th.  Our Sniper match will be held on November 30th.

August 10th Match Cancelled

Due to the range conditions and weather we are cancelling the match that was scheduled for Saturday August 10, 2019.


As a reminder, August has 5 Saturdays so we will be holding our "Sniper" match on August 31st. 

December 29th Match

The December 29th will include a sniper stage that you can use a separate rifle for that stage and then your normal rifle for the other stages.  The 4 non-sniper stages will be rifle and pistol only (no shotgun).

Match Fee Increase


As many of you are aware there has been a lot of change in the makeup of board members and officers at Manatee Gun Club and some new policies implemented by the new regime will be impacting our discipline.

Not the least of which are an increase in what our 3-gun program pays MGAC for use of the ranges.

So we regret to inform all our shooters that going forward we will be increasing our match fees. Beginning with the match scheduled for December 8th match fees will be $25 for members and $30 for non-members.

Thanks,

Marty (aka Mark) Meek
