Local shooter wins 3-Gun Nation Nationals

October 22, 2019 1 comment

If you have shot 3-Gun with us in the past couple of years, you probably know Kevin Leonhardt. He and his daughter, Morgan, are routinely at the top of the results in our local matches. However, they recently competed at the 2019 Nationals for 3-Gun Nation and, not surprisingly, they did extremely well. Kevin won Unlimited and Morgan took High Lady. You can read all about it here.

Congratulations, Kevin and Morgan!!! I know I feel a lot better now, getting beat by you guys!

Dawson Precision What a nice match today! The weather was pleasant for a change, and the stages were challenging but certainly fun. The company was great, as well. Who could ask for more?

Out of the 26 shooters that took on the five stages today, only three were able to shoot a clean match. That didn’t guarantee a win, though, because appearances were deceiving. Nothing looked particularly hard, but I guess it was right around the zone of where most people start disrespecting the targets. Too far to point shoot, but too close to aim (LOL!). We all know we need to aim all the time, but many of us took it for granted and tallied some Mikes or the dreaded no-shoot. But taking time to “get your hits” isn’t always the answer, either. You just need to “…shoot at the speed of sight¹.”

The setup today certainly did favor the hi-cap guns, especially the never-empty PCC. It should therefore come as no surprise that a PCC shooter took top honors. Congratulations to Read more…

We were extremely lucky today, weather-wise. During setup yesterday, we had an intense rain event that put the road in really bad shape. Getting out was tough, and it was possible only due to gravity. The concern this morning was that the hill would still be slick as owl poop. It actually wasn’t too bad and only one vehicle needed some assistance. But that wasn’t the end of the weather. During the match, it was pretty nice, considering how hot it has been lately. We finished just before 2 PM, which is great. But just as I pulled out of the pit at 2:45, the bottom dropped out of the sky and it rained hard. Had this come an hour or two earlier, it would have messed up the last stages for the squads and made it downright dangerous getting DOWN the hill. But, the weather gods finally saw it our way, and it worked out.

In past matches, the stages never quite seemed balanced and one squad would always be waiting. Today, it worked out like a dream. The stages were just right to keep things moving and both squads finished the match within 5 minutes of each other. I guess we are living right these days.

If you recall last month, Morgan Leonhardt (12 years old) won the match over 15 adult males. Some may have thought that was a fluke. However, if you have shot 3-gun with her, you know it wasn’t. And, she continues to improve each month. Today, she beat all the other shooters again, EXCEPT one. And that one was Read more…

With the G-Man back in the driver’s seat, the difficulty stepped up just a bit. No high hit factor stages were present today, but there were plenty of long shots, tight shots, no-shoots and a fair amount of steel. All these factors seemed to challenge folks more than normal. Be that as it may, it was still a fun match.

The weather wasn’t too bad, with just a bit of heat and sun at times, but nothing like this Summer. The turnout was decent with 40 shooters navigating the 5 stages. There were a handful of new shooters today and everyone seemed to get through the match OK. Thank you for coming out to shoot with us today!

For those who previewed the scores at the range or got them on PS moments after they were posted, there was a mistake in scoring that, when corrected, resulted in a change to the top few positions. At first, I was surprised and delighted to see that I finished 3rd overall and had beaten my mentor, Gerwin, in head to head competition with open guns, but it was not to be. A procedure penalty on me on stage 2 was recorded improperly. Once it was updated, I dropped to 5th. Darn it. But I would rather beat him fair and square, than by a fat fingered mistake, and that day will come…

Today saw the return of several shooters who had been on break for a couple of months, but it was clear they didn’t totally forget how to get it done. Maybe a bit of rust seeped through, but they dominated the match as they have been doing for quite some time. However, the final scores showed Read more…
