SunBuster’s Bruce Piatt Finishes in the Money at 3-Gun Nation Championship
FARMINGDALE, NY –-(Ammoland.com)- World Champion Professional shooter, Bruce Piatt arrived at the Desert Sportsman’s Rifle and Pistol Club in Las Vegas to battle it out amongst the country’s best shooting competitors and finished second in the inaugural FNH 3-Gun Nation Championship.
Competitors accumulated points over the past year in five qualifying titled events held throughout the United States leading to the year end finale.
The fast paced Man on Man shoot off consisted of two shooters simultaneously burning through six 8” steel plates at a 100 yards with a rifle, then picking up a shotgun to swing through five steel targets bordered by two clay birds and ending it with a pistol aimed at a six 8” steel plate rack. The winner was determined by who knocked down the overlapping plates first. While it was not a timed shoot off, the adrenaline level of the shooters was at its peak as they ran and handled all three firearms safely while combining speed and accuracy.
Piatt commented, “I’ve been competing in 3 Gun matches since they were created. To see this sport evolve, by pulling in shooters from other disciplines, it draws in more talent and new faces which can only augment the sport. Who wouldn’t want to chase down a $25,000 check? 3-Gun events are all about the fun factor, speed and providing challenging targets for all levels of competitors.”
“Shooting in the hot and bright sunny desert climate, can present a host of challenges for shooters trying to accurately see their targets downrange. When I was ready to compete, I wore my SunBuster® Clear lens and then switched out to my SunShooter Gray lens to rest my eyes afterwards. As I travel throughout the country, shooting at different times of day or amongst varied terrain, it’s the flexibility of the various SunBuster lenses that gives me winning results, said Piatt.”
SunBuster’s president Steve Asman said, “Bruce continues to dominate the shooting sports while driving it to the next level. We’re thrilled to be a part of Bruce’s winning results and success by providing him with quality equipment he can consistently count on.”
