Wilsonville, OR - -(Ammoland.com)- Crimson Trace’s 2014 Midnight 3-Gun Invitational (M3GI) is now history.
That recorded shooting sports history chapter includes the names of many of the nation’s top 3-Gun competitors who traveled to central Oregon and took their best shots at the event’s prestigious top spot—and a $10,000 Grand Prize.
The widely recognized multi-night competition in the desert also saw the frequent use of Crimson Trace laser sighting systems and tactical lights. Those products were attached to the firearms of the shooters and helped them take precise aim and make scoring hits.
Among the top ten 2014 M3GI winners and their sponsors are: 1- Daniel Horner (US Army), 2-Matt Sweeney (US Army), 3-Kalani Laker (Optics Planet), 4-Joel Turner (US Army), 5-True Pearce (Seekins Precision), 6-Jerry Miculek (Smith & Wesson), 7-Keith Garcia (Timney Triggers), 8-Travis Gibson (MGM Targets), 9-Nate Heinrichs (Elite Arms and Supply) and 10-Jesse Tischauser (Optics Planet). Horner, the first place winner, received the Grand Prize check for $10,000.
The competition’s High Lady winner was Lena Miculek, whose sponsors include Smith & Wesson. Nearly 20 female competitors were on the range—and competing— in this year’s event. That group included Olympic athletes Tracy and Lanny Barnes.
The winner of the 2014 M3GI High Junior division was Brian Nelson, a 17-year-old competitor who finished in 13th place among the nearly 200 total competitors. Other junior shooters competing in the multi-night event included Wyatt Gibson and J.D. Wilcox.
