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.

New Leadership for Manatee 3 Gun and Oct 9th Match Cancelation

 

Manatee 3 Gunners,

 

I wanted to reach out to this group to let you know that both Marty and Todd have retired from running Manatee 3 Gun.  They will still be participating in matches, but have passed the keys over to a few of us to keep the club functioning.

I would like to thank them for running the club.

I have accepted to be the point person but we have some others that have stepped up to help and we are looking for others as this will be a team effort.

We will not be running the main Oct. match on Oct. 9th, but we are going to try to have the 5th Saturday match on Oct. 30th.  We haven't decided the format yet but we will likely shoot some long range as we have in the past.

We also might not do the full set up every Friday but rather do some hybrid set up with some stages being built on Saturdays by groups.  I know we have some locals that live pretty close and could be willing to help before we get the match going on Saturday mornings.  Stay tuned for more information. 

So for now put Oct. 30th on your calendar and get your long rifles ready.  I'll be sending out periodic emails to keep everyone up to date. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the range.

Thanks,

Shine Taylor

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
