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.

April 10th Match Canceled

 The April 10th 3 gun match has been canceled due to the ammo shortage.

March 2021 match has been canceled

To get an idea on how many plan on attending the match on March 13th, we sent out an email to the 3 gun email list to survey how many are planning on shooting the match.  After reviewing the responses, we determined that we would cancel the match.

    We will review the status each month moving forward and post the decision on this site.

 

February 13th Match Cancelled

    It is no secret that ammo availability is limited and pricey.  We have seen our attendance at our matches dropping for several months.   To get an idea on how many plan on attending the match on February 13th, we sent out an email to the 3 gun email list to survey how many are planning on shooting the match.  After reviewing the responses, we determined that we would cancel the match.

    We will review the status each month moving forward and post the decision on this site.


January 30th, 2021 Match Cancelled

 Due to the difficulty in obtaining ammo, we have cancelled the January 30th match. 

PCC NOT allowed for use at matches

The temporary allowance for the PCC to be used at the normal monthly match over the past couple of months is NO longer allowed.  With the range not allowing us to use the side berms for anything but bird shot targets it makes stage design difficult to create a challenging yet safe stage if PCC is allowed.


22LR can still be used as a substitute for the AR on any of the stages.

November 14th Match Cancelled

 The November 14th, 2020 match has been cancelled due to weather conditions.  Yes, we know the storm will pass before Saturday, but the standing water on the ranges is what the concern is about.


Please join us for the December 12th match.

PCC and 22LR Allowed

 Due to the price and availability of ammo we are allowing PCC (Pistol Caliber Carbine) and 22LR rifles for the matches.  On the two longer stages shooters are allowed to use a center fired rifle and the PCC or 22LR on stages 3-5.
