It took a few years for me to completely settle on the gear that I use for 3 Gun. We went through different guns, magazine holders, holsters, magazines, and range bags. All of that went towards finding a comfortable, practical set up so that I could establish confidence in my guns and gear when competing. Now I don’t have to worry about the little things and can focus more on stage planning, practicing, and having fun!
I shoot the Ruger AR-556 MPR in 5.56 NATO. I like this rifle because it is lightweight but still has enough mass to help with stability when shooting long-range rifle. The rifle has a comfortable feel, adjustable stock, and M-LOK rail that can be used for attachments.
I currently shoot a Ruger American Pistol Competition. It is a lightweight, striker fire gun. It comes ready for competition out-of-the-box and I have not changed anything from stock on this gun. The slide is pre-cut and ready for a red dot so that a shooter can switch between different divisions if they choose from match to match. My favorite thing about this pistol is the grip angle and texture. When you purchase the pistol, you notice an aggressive texture that allows for a solid grip. The angle is conducive to any size of hands and stays comfortable throughout prolonged use. I also
love that you do not have to replace the factory sights. The rear sight is adjustable and there is a fiber optic front sight.
For the competition, I use a Benelli 12 gauge M2. We have changed quite a bit from the stock firearm. When we first received it, we had the modifications done by James Casanova. He installed an oversized bolt release, charging handle, and worked on my loading port. Personally, I recommend Briley Manufacturing or Roth Performance parts. I also have a Nordic Component +9 extension tube. If you look at my shotgun, you will notice that I have duct tape on the stock. This is holding my Cheek-Eez pad in place so that I can get a consistent mount on the gun every time.
