3-Gun has strayed too far from its roots. Join the reboot in progress.


JP ENTERPRISES and COMPETITION DYNAMICS present RESURGENCE, a Tactical 3-Gun Match that captures the full spirit and flavor of the legendary SOF 3-Gun matches.

We've brought back the spirit of the original Outlaw 3-Gun with tactical, semi-surprise stages. Our ruleset has evolved for modern 3-Gun and tactical rifles, but a secondary rifle optic or 26-inch shotgun tube won't give you a win at this match-- it's all about shooting fundamentals, situational awareness, and thinking on your feet.

This match is being brought to 3-Gunners, law enforcement, and military shooters by SOF 3-Gun veterans.

Join us in rekindling the spark of tactical 3-Gun.

RESURGENCE brings that history to life.

Camouflage is encouraged and you will get dirty!

RESURGENCE: 3-GUN REBOOTED

Posted By: Zak Smith on February 3, 2017


JP ENTERPRISES and COMPETITION DYNAMICS present RESURGENCE, a Tactical 3-Gun Match that captures the full spirit and flavor of the legendary SOF 3-Gun matches.

We’ve brought back the spirit of the original Outlaw 3-Gun with tactical, semi-surprise stages. Our ruleset has evolved for modern 3-Gun and tactical rifles, but a secondary rifle optic or 26-inch shotgun tube won’t give you a win at this match– it’s all about shooting fundamentals, situational awareness, and thinking on your feet.

This match is being brought to 3-Gunners, law enforcement, and military shooters by SOF 3-Gun veterans.

Join us in rekindling the spark of tactical 3-Gun.

2017 DATES Sept 21-24. Registration open now!
RESURGENCE 2017

 
WHY RESURGENCE?

“Resurgence” - noun, an increase or revival after a period of little activity, popularity, or occurrence.

You may have heard the “old time 3-gunners” speak of the SOF 3-Gun Tactical Match. These stories stem from the glory days of 3-Gun, from which all modern day 3-gun descended from and is still measured against.

This match is a test of shooting, tactical awareness, movement and weapon manipulation. All the stages are “semi-surprise”, meaning there will be no “walk throughs” and stage procedures and briefing will be done beforehand.

If you are a relatively new 3-Gun shooter, this match is a must-shoot. It will be straight-forward and transparent. “Gaming” is almost impossible.

You do not need "ultra expensive" firearms to shoot this match. An M-14, Mossberg pump, and Browning Hi-Power are perfect.

Too many of the current generation of 3-Gunners have no idea where their sport came from. We are "putting the band back together" to bring you RESURGENCE. It will be epic.

The match staff are experienced “SOF Vets” and vetted match administrators that have been running matches since the year 2000 including the last “SOF” in Raton, NM (2001).

For LE and Military personnel, there will be a certified training seminar put on by our LE Liaison on todays LE issues and tactics.

There will be expert pins and medals for the “Top 50”, and prizes will be handed to the shooters through the “Top 50” until prizes are gone. LE and Military will have separate prizes. There will be a special prize for the "returning SOF Vet”. A sponsor will be offering a cash purse to the winner.

We've modernized the rules to permit all modern 3-Gun weapons: up to OPEN rifles; up to LIMITED pistols and shotguns. However, what makes this match special is the stage design. Ultra expensive "race" guns will not necessarily help you at this match. Solid shooting fundamentals, thinking on your feet, and situational awareness will.

We can guarantee you will get dirty. Holsters and magazine retention systems will be tested. This is not to discourage you, but to expose you on what we had to experience per “SOF” stage rules.

The mandatory shooter meeting will be at specified time per the match schedule. Plan to be there for 1.5-2 hours. Feel free to bring a fold up chair and a note pad. At the shooter meeting stage procedures will be gone over, and this will be a time for Q&A’s.

There will be no stage boxes or buckets to ground firearms. These rulings and stage procedures will be per stage, and the information will be given during the shooter meeting.

This section is the 2017 Competition Dynamics Unified Safety Rules for Shooting

  1. USPSA safety rules are the baseline for safety at this match.
  2. Violation of any safety rule will result in match disqualification (DQ).
  3. The Match Director has the right to disqualify any competitor for Unsportsmanlike Conduct based on his judgement.
  4. Competitors shall practice good muzzle control and firearm safety at all times. Competitors that do not handle their weapons safely will be disqualified from competing further in the match with no refund of match fees.

    3. Do not put your finger on the trigger until your sights are aligned with your target.
    4. Obey all Range Officer commands immediately.
  5. In addition to the USPSA definition of an Accidental Discharge, the stage RO may call an A.D. using his own judgement, e.g.: if the competitor was clearly not engaging a target. Any round that does not impact within 10 yards of the target the competitor is engaging, or impacts in an unsafe area or direction, is declared to be an AD.
  6. The entire competition area is a "cold range."
    1. No firearms may be loaded at the match site except under the direct command of a RO.
    2. Long-guns shall be kept unloaded in cases or on a designated rack, and carried muzzle up or muzzle down and the action open.
    3. "Sweeping" any person with a weapon's muzzle will result in immediate D.Q.
  7. All firearms must have a functioning safety, subject to verification by an RO at any time. (A pistol that has not had any factory safety devices disabled will be considered to have a safety for the purpose of this rule.)
  8. Any firearm or ammunition deemed by any RO or match staff to be "unsafe" for any reason may not be used in the match until a determination is made by the match director that it may continue.
  9. All firearms must be able to be completely unloaded without firing a round.
  10. Any firearm that can be demonstrated by any RO or match staff to have a hammer/striker that will fall without the trigger being pressed shall be deemed unsafe and may not be used in the match until repaired.
  11. Any rifle slung must have an empty chamber, unless directed by the stage RO.
  12. No person shall consume or be under the influence of alcohol or non-prescription drugs at the match site. Any person found to be impaired and unsafe as a result of legitimate prescription drugs may be directed to stop shooting and requested to leave the range.
  13. Safety glasses and ear protection are required to be worn/used at all times by competitors and spectators when in the vicinity of any weapons being fired.
  14. No person shall place a rifle in such a position that it points at any other person. Find a safe direction if you need to set your rifle down! If you find out there are people passing or downrange, wait until they are clear and then relocate your rifle.
  15. This match may include dynamic shooting in natural terrain. Match staff will communicate what are safe directions to point firearms while shooting, or while waiting. This will typically be presented during a stage or match briefing. The competitor shall note and obey the safe muzzle direction guidelines.
  16. Ammunition must not cause unusual target damage or cause a fire or other safety risk.
    1. No steel jacket or core projectiles
    2. No armor piercing, incendiary, or tracer bullets
