Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows of any local 3 gun competitions or any place I can practice 3 gun nearby? I've never shot 3 gun before and would like to try it out. Thanks for any help.

We don't do any actual 3 gun (I wish...) but we do have various shooting events including silhouette, IDPA and NRA high power. Far warning, all events are public but it is a private club. If you're any where near, check it out. Oh and we have a 1k rifle range too.

Almost halfway between Erie and Pittsburgh, 20 or so miles off of I80.

Yep this match you just show up. During the summer the turn out is larger and the shoot goes longer due to this but we've never had to turn anyone away that made it for the shooters meeting. If you're late you can be turned away.
