Safariland Ups Cash Payout for 3GN Shoot-Off
The next stop on the 2011 FNH USA 3-Gun Nation Tour, presented by SureFire, is during the JP Enterprises Rocky Mountain 3-Gun, Aug. 4-6, at the NRA Whittington Center in Raton, N.M. Rocky Mountain is the sixth of 10 3GN events this season, and serves as a critical opportunity for several top pros to position themselves on the 3GN Leader Boards.
But everyone will also be vying for an opportunity at a 3GN Shoot-Off worth $10,200, all from Safariland. Not only has Safariland kicked in the $5,000 first place check, but also the following cash payouts: 2nd place, $1,000; Semi-Finalists, $500; and the remaining four Shoot-Off participants will receive a check for $100.
In addition, each 3GN Team Event and Main Event competitor will each receive a $200 Gift Certificate from Safariland, a contribution worth $2,800.
When combined with Brownells’ $500 check to each of the 3GN Team Event winners, $11,700 is on the line during the 3GN Shoot-Offs at Rocky Mountain.
But also on the line are 3GN series points, as top pros such as Micheal Voigt, Jerry Miculek and Kelly Neal look to qualify for the 3GN Championship. Meanwhile, important division races see key battles, such as Kurt Miller, James Casanova, Travis Gibson and Kelly Neal in Tacical Irons; and Barry Dueck, Adam Popplewell and now Patrick Kelley in Heavy Metal Optics. In Open, Voigt will be shooting for an all-important second division win, which would open the door for him to make a run at division leader Clint Upchurch. And in Heavy Metal, Rob Romero takes his first shot at Heavy Metal.
Follow all the 3GN Divisional Championship races as the top shooters in the game jockey for a division win and a check for $5,000. And look for daily reports from Raton, and see who emerges from the field to win the 3GN Shoot-Off and a check for $5,000 from Safariland.
