The Multi-Gun Matches have stages that will use one or more of the 3 guns, pistol, rifle and shotgun. The total score for these three stages are added together for the match score. Pistol and rifle courses are typically 30-40 rounds each. The shotgun course is typically 12-25 rounds each. Bring some means of carrying enough ammo to finish the course of fire. There are three divisions for Multi-Gun Match with 6 classes in each division so the competitor still only competes against those with similar guns and skill level.
Equipment You Will Need:
- A rifle chambered in 5.45x39mm or larger [an AR15 in 5.56x45mm is the most common].
- A shotgun chambered in 20 gauge or larger [a 12 gauge semi-auto shotgun is the most common].
- A handgun chambered in 9x19mm or larger.
- A holster for your handgun. It is highly recommended you get one designed specifically for your gun and not a universal holster. The trigger must be covered by the holster.
- Plenty of ammunition for all three guns. It never hurts to have too much ammo!
We also have some ENGC range rules:
No shot larger than #7 in your shotgun. That means that only #7 shot and higher number birdshot types are allowed (#8 shot is very commonly used). Using larger (lower number) shot is grounds for a disqualification for unsafe equipment.
No steel shot ammunition! All shotgun ammunition must be lead shot! We shoot steel targets at close range and steel shot has a much greater chance of causing ricochets. Breaking this rule will result in disqualification from the match!
No steel core, tracer, or armor piercing ammunition is allowed. This includes M855/SS109 "green tip" ammunition. Please make sure you are shooting lead core ammunition. Using these kinds of ammunition will also result in a disqualification! This is because we are almost always going to have steel rifle targets at a match and it beats up our steel and carries a higher risk for ricochets.
