THREE GUN TOURNAMENT/MATCH

 

In order to promote and present a sensible shooting discipline a structure must be developed to facilitate the competition. This is the first of three options that can be adopted for Three gun competitions. The other options will be published next editions of the NGPSA news letter.

 

The 3 Gun shooting can be presented as either a Match or a Tournament. The IPSC rulebook is not very clear on what constitutes a match or a tournament. My assessment is that a tournament must constitute of more than one match, which consist of any number of stages.

Therefore the three gun must be presented as a tournament, which is consist of three separate matches.

Each weapon type must be scored separately in order to determine and reward the winner in each category. A combined set of results that includes al three weapons must then be prepared in order to determine the overall winner.

 

ENTRY CONDITIONS FOR THE TOURNAMENT.

 

Competitors can enter for the whole tournament, "Victor Ludorum", or enter for the individual weapons only.

 

When a competitor wants to compete for the Victor Ludorum, all three the weapons must be entered in a declared division i.e. Open.
