The first day of competition here at the JP Enterprises' Rocky Mountain 3-Gun got underway early this morning, and we hit Stage 4 first. This stage of the match is pure shotgun, requiring a minimum round count of 38 birdshot shells, no slugs. The stage is aptly named "Holy #*@$" because targets are seemingly everywhere.
Many of the steel targets they shoot engage clay targets which fly from the bushes in a variety of directions. Swinging targets are also included on this stage, making this a challenging run for competitors. We caught up with one squad this morning which includes members of Benelli's 3-Gun Pro Staff such as Kurt Miller, Katie Harris, and Ben Fortin.
