3M3G results

And a good time was had by all!  Especially on the micro paper targets on Stage 2.  No team escaped unscathed.  As for the scores, there was an issue with one Nook, which required some percussive maintenance.  The prelims were posted from the range, but the finals are now up:

September 2015 Multigun Results

The prelims were posted from the range at about 1500 hrs.  Due to a scoring glitch, some changes had to be made for those who timed out on certain stages.  This has been fixed and the finals are posted.  So if you looked at your scores last night, you may want to check them again as your overall standing may have gone up (or down).  Go to Practiscore:

August Multi-gun Results

Results are up, actually they've been up since yesterday afternoon.  If I fail to get the link up here fast enough you can go to practiscore.com and search the match results.  I always use York and the Month in the name of our matches.  Except the MAMGC.

It was a great match, and we enjoyed having you all there.

Follow by email

If you're on a computer (as opposed to a mobile device) you will see a box just to the right that says "follow by email" and has a blank to put your email address.  I just added that.  I suggest you fill it in.  The August match filled in 8 hours.  If you get an email telling you the match invite has been posted you are less likely to be number 12 on the waiting list.  Someone else might be, but that's not your problem.

February FunShoot Cancelled

Sorry folks, the ranges are all covered in ice and snow that has created conditions that are just too unsafe to do anything of substance. The weather forecast for the next week is not helpful, so I am going to call this one off. Large scale ice is the only thing we really cannot deal with.

This is a serious situation that has postponed our  3 man 3 gun match (see below post).  Please note, the new date for the 3M3G is our next FunShoot date, so we may be on the sidelines for that date too.
Please keep watching this here blog for details as the dates get closer (or better yet, subscribe to it). If the 3M3G can't get off the ground, we may FunShoot that day, it is just too early to tell.

See you on the range someday.

3M3G Postponed

The York 3 Man 3 Gun will be postponed until Saturday, March 28th due to ice accumulation on the ranges.  I have studied the conditions at length and looked at the 10 day forecast and I don't believe there is any way we can safely host a match less than three weeks from now.  I wanted to give you as much notice as possible.

I have been anxiously watching the conditions and feel it is better to pull the plug sooner rather than later since there is little to no hope of improvement in the near future.  There has been a series of thaws and refreezes that have left us with up to 6 inches of ice covering almost all of the surface on most of our ranges.  There is only one day of the next 10 that is forecast above freezing and 2 with potential for more snow or wintry mix.

We will be planning on using our first alternative date of Saturday, March 28th to hold the scheduled match.  I know this won't suit everyone and I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  We will be refunding entry fees as necessary.  If you would like an immediate refund let me know.  However, if some of your team can make it we encourage them to attend and we'll match up the loose parts as well as possible.  Also, if you want to wait until closer to the 28th, to see if we can have the match that day please do.  It is possible we will not be able to shoot that day either.

I'll keep you informed as much as possible, Howard

3M3G Stages are out!

I have emailed all the team captains the stages for the 3M3G on March 8th, and some other useful information.  If you haven't gotten it yet talk to your captain.  If you are a captain and haven't gotten that email contact me.

Range conditions

The back pits are ridiculous.  Several inches of ice in some spots and almost everything is covered to some degree.  There has been snow, thawing and freezing repeatedly, and it's worse every time I get there.  The chances of us postponing the 3M3G scheduled for March 8th are probably about 99% unless something changes dramatically very quickly.  Even our fall back date of March 28 looks like 50%. at this point.  I'll keep you informed.

The good news is we built over 40 new wall sections today.

January Action Match

I should be announcing the January Action Match right now, but I'm not.  It has been cancelled.  The weather forecast for next weekend is bleak.

However, if the forecast should improve we might do something.  I have an idea.  Check back here before the weekend.  I'll let you know no later than Thursday night.  There will not be an advanced sign up for this match (if it happens at all).

If we do something it will be rifle only.  Be prepared to shoot 1-2 MOA targets from 100-200 yards from supported positions.  Entry fee will be cheap and round count will be on the low side.  Less than 50 rounds for sure.  Semi-autos will be the best choice, but others are not out of the question.  No calibers larger than .308 for sure.

2015 Mid AtlanticMulti-gun Challenge

The application for the 2015 Mid-Atlantic Multi-gun Challenge is now available at

This is our annual major match at York.  We expect this year's event to be a huge step forward with our back pits now more than twice as big.  Right now we're thinking 7 stages and around 210 rounds evenly divided between the 3 guns.  This match can be shot in a single day and we keep our squads reasonably sized so it is a very pleasant experience.

The match fee is $100 per shooter and includes lunch and a t-shirt.  We also do generous cash payouts based on a modified Lewis system where you choose your own class.  It's easier than it sounds.  Just look at where you have finished in the past and plan on shooting at least that well.  You can shoot under your chosen class and if you're the best in that bracket you get paid.  Just remember if you go over your chosen percentage you're out.

Here's what the payouts looked like last year:

100% 1st Place Greg Jordan $750

100% 2nd Place Todd Jarrett $500

100% 3rd Place Dean DeTurk $250


90% 1st Place Howard Thompson $600


90% 2nd Place Dave Marques $400


90% 3rd Place Doug Gross $200


80% 1st Place Mark Mazzota $500


80% 2nd Place Brian Christ $300


80% 3rd Place Matt Olinchak $150


70% 1st Place Brian Cashman $400


70% 2nd Place Colin Wynne $200


70% 3rd Place Jimmy Sheu $100


60% 1st Place Bill Hostler $300


60% 2nd Place Jim Sheehy $150


60% 3rd Place Matt Goldrick $75

50% 1st Place Walt Romaniw $200


50% 2nd Place John Lerch $100


50% 3rd Place Rachael Granico $50


1st Limited Mike Stephens $200


2nd Limited Garrett Boop $100


3rd Limited Frank Santini $50


1st Open Al Zitta $200


2nd Open Brian Shank $50



That might help you figure out where you belong.  We expect more shooters and larger payouts this year.

This match may fill up fast so don't delay mailing in your application and check.
