Watch 2022 Multi-Gun Nationals on Shooting USA TV Today

shooting usa tv uspsa multi-gun nationals south carolina

After a one-year hiatus, the United States Practical Shooting Association’s Multi-Gun Nationals event is back at new South Carolina venue — the Clinton House Plantation, which features shooting bays and an impressive 2000-acre hunting preserve. The USPSA Multi-Gun Nationals ran April 1-3, 2022.

Multi-gun competition is tough. Competitors must master pistol, rifle, and shotgun –three platforms, three calibers. Along with having great marksmanship skills, competitors must be very fit — the matches involve a significant amount of running. It’s all part of the challenge at the USPSA’s Multi-Gun Nationals.

If you are a fan of 3-Gun competition, tune in to Shooting USA this week. The latest episode, which airs Wednesday May 25 at 9:00 pm Eastern, 8:00 PM Central, features the 2022 USPSA Multi-Gun Nationals in South Carolina. You can see many of the nation’s top 3-Gun shooters attacking challenging stages with pistols, rifles, and shotguns. CLICK HERE for TV Schedule.

Multi-gun competition has evolved considerably since it started 30+ years ago. The firearms are more sophisticated, the optics are better, and the stage times are much faster. Still, the challenge remains the same: How fast can you shoot multiple targets, with the score determined by speed and accuracy? For the best in the sport, the answer is very fast indeed.

Joe Farwell hosts highlights from 2022 USPSA Multi-Gun Nationals.

Most people compete in the Tactical Division. Competitors in that division are not allowed a bipod, so many competitors utilize structures on the stage to stabilize their long gun. Regardless of division, the USPSA Multi-Gun Nationals is a true test of manipulating three different weapons, under pressure, on run-and-gun courses of fire. And the pressure is definitely on when a National Championship is on the line.

Curtis Roman Sets ELR Cold Bore 3-Shot Record at 2472 Yards

ELR Cold Bore World record Curtis Roman 2472 yards

Here’s a really impressive feat of marksmanship and rifle accuracy. Starting with a cold bore, i.e. no sighters and no warm-up shots right before the string, Curtis Roman made 3 hits in a row at 1.404 MILES (2472 yards). The hits were on a steel target 3-foot square (36″x36″). To put things in perspective, one MOA at 2472 yards spans 25.88 inches. Looking at the target, his three shots were very close to 1 MOA.

Sterling Precision and Applied Ballistics shooter Curtis Roman set a new FCSA Extreme Long Range (ELR) Cold Bore Record on Sunday, May 22, 2022, at the Spring Canyon ELR Match at the NRA Whittington Center in Raton, NM. At this match, Curtis was able to make 3 consecutive impacts at 2472 yards, starting with a cold bore. This feat was witnessed by fellow competitors. Through his spotting and wind-reading skills, Roman’s teammate David Lindsey played a key role in setting this new Cold Bore ELR World Record.

Curtis was shooting a Sterling Precision-built .416 Stroker with 500 grain Cutting Edge Lazer bullets. The ballistics solution for the 2472-yard distance was calculated by a Kestrel 5700X with Applied Ballistics using Doppler radar data.

This video shows Curtis Roman at the 2021 KO2M event at the Whittington Center last year:
