Each summer, we host the annual Alaska State 3-Gun Championship at Birchwood. Our 3-Gun Championship has been an annual event since 2012.

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 and Equipment Requirements

You will need a minimum of 250 rounds  for rifle, and 250 rounds for pistol, 150 bird shot, and 25 slugs. Bring more ammo to make up for missed shots! No ammunition that attracts a magnet is allowed.
