My Son and I would like to work towards joining 3-gun shoots. We are in the west suburban area of Chicago and I thought it would be fun to go and spectate at an outdoor 3-gun competition. For instance - when you members at ASC have a competition, do you have to be a member to attend? Or can anyone show up and watch? Anything you can tell me as far as what to watch for, what to bring with, is there usually food or refreshments available? Anything else you might suggest?
I'll be the first to offer, but if you'd like, myself and a few friends will be shooting a 3 gun match at ASC on 4/21, starting at 7am and you're more than welcome to come out and hang around the squad I'm on. I'd be more than happy to answer questions in between resetting the stage between shooters, and shooting the stage myself.
They've changed the format this year to morning and afternoon flights and we're on the morning one. From what I recall, if you're shooting, you have to be there at 7am. I believe the gates would more than likely be open most of the day, but to be safe getting there around 7am would probably be best to guarantee you get onto the property.
If you PM me, I can send you my cell number, and I'll keep an eye on it that day to check for texts and wave to you so you know where we are.
