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!

MATCH NEWS
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.
