FJ0A6967Overview

Each summer, Friends of Birchwood hosts the annual Alaska State 3-Gun Championship. This is a two and a half day match held in June.

Shooters should be prepared to engage rifle targets from contact distances to as far as 300 yards, pistol/PCC targets from contact distance to 40 yards, shotgun targets to 100 yards with slugs and to 20 yards with shot. To complete each course of fire, you may be required to shoot one, two or all three guns.

This is a physically challenging event. You may be required to move safely around the range with loaded firearms, shoot from various positions, shoot targets that move, or shoot while you are moving. You may have to reload or safely clear your firearm during the stage. You may be required to shoot pistol using both of your hands, your strong hand only or support hand only. You may also be required to shoot the rifle and shotgun from both shoulders.

Your score is the time it takes you to complete the stage plus any penalties assessed. Penalties include hitting a target that is designated as a no-shoot target, missing a target, not hitting the target in the required amount of time, or not complying with other specific requirements for the stage.

Ammunition Requirements

You will need a minimum of 200 rounds centerfire rifle, 200 rounds pistol/PCC, 135 rounds shotgun bird shot, and 20 rounds shotgun slugs. Bring more ammo to make up for any misses! No ammunition that attracts a magnet is allowed. This includes steel core bullets, bi-metal jacketed bullets, military green tip or armor piercing bullets, or steel shot. No shotgun shells over 3” length, or shot larger than #6. Shot must be lead.  Reduced/low recoil slug loads are recommended. There are additional ammunition requirements detailed in the rules document below.
