Brownells Sponsors Ladies-Only 3-Gun Event with $130K in Prizes

3-Gun Ladies CompetitionMulti-gun competition is fast, fun, and exciting. But most 3-Gun matches are stag parties, with a small share of female competitors. Brownells is looking to change that situation and get more women involved in 3-Gun competition. Next fall, Brownells will sponsor the Lady 3-Gun Pro-Am Challenge, the first-ever all-ladies national 3-Gun major match. The event will run October 31 through November 1, 2014 at Atlanta’s South River Gun Club. Over $130,000 worth of prizes will be awarded.

“I have been in this game for 30 years, and we have never been able to sustain a high number of women in the shooting sports. This match will serve as a stepping stone to create an exclusive 3-Gun division for ladies, giving them a sustainable interest in the action shooting sports.” – Kay Miculek, Team Smith & Wesson, Brownells Ladies 3-Gun Assistant Match Director

200 Lady Shooters Will Attend
This 9-stage match, sanctioned by 3-Gun Nation and operated under the Regional Series Rules, is expected to attract 200 lady shooters from around the Nation. It will be set up on a Pro-Am format, with experienced 3-Gun lady shooters in the “Pro” class, and other competitors in the Amateur division. Competitors are assigned to one of three hardware divisions: Tac Optics, Tac Irons, or Open Divisions. This match boasts a prize table valued over $130,000.

3-Gun Ladies Competition

Who will be the “leading ladies” at the Brownells match this fall? Certainly Kay Miculek is a favorite. But Kay’s daughter Lena Miculek will undoubtedly challenge for the match win. Raised by two legendary shooters, Lena has winning in her genes. Lena is the current women’s IPSC World Shotgun Champion and the 2013 3-Gun Nation Lady’s Champion. (Lena also won the $25,000 Ladies’ top prize at the 2014 3-Gun Nation Shoot-Off.) We also expect that our friend Maggie Reese and Team FNH Shooter Tasha Hanish will challenge for the podium. You can see Tasha in action in the video below.
