USA --(Ammoland.com)- The top four slots on the 2011 FNH USA 3-Gun Nation Tour, Presented by SureFire, held steady following the Adams Arms Ozark 3-Gun Championship, with SureFire’s Barry Dueck, Colt’s Clint Upchurch, U.S. AMU’s Daniel Horner and Benelli’s Kurt Miller maintaining their four-way tie for the top spot.
Adam Popplewell’s second place finish at Ozark pushed him into fifth place overall, bumping Mike Voigt to sixth place.
Rob Romero picked up his second division this season in Heavy Metal, bumping him up to the number seven slot. Jerry Miculek moved up three spots to number eight following a win at the Pro Am, while Taran Butler and Bryan Ray round out the top 10.
Kelly Neal made his long-awaited 3GN Standings debut after finally picking up his third match of the season at the Pro Am, vaulting the veteran 3-gunner to 12th overall. Greg Jordan picked up his third score as well recently, entering the standings in 14th place, while Joe Satterfield debuted in the 3GN Standings at 24th.
With eight matches recorded, the 3GN Top 50 is taking shape, with only one match remaining, the USPSA Multi-Gun Nationals, before the field is locked. Following Nationals, the top 50 competitors are then guaranteed a slot in the 3GN Championship. These competitors will also be guaranteed a slot in the FNH USA Championships, should they desire to compete.
Then at the FNH USA Championships in November, 14 additional slots will be earned based on series points, bringing the 3GN Championship field to 64 competitors—all vying for the title of 3GN Champion, and $25,000 from Leupold Tactical Optics.
