USA –-(Ammoland.com)- Reigning 3-Gun Nation Champion Keith Garcia led the final 3GN Pro Series match of the season wire-to-wire, holding off a solid challenge by Greg Jordan and Taran Butler, to win his second 3GN Pro Series match in two years, taking home $5,000 from SureFire.
Garcia won three of the match’s six stages, including the finale, to outpace Jordan by approximately three and a half seconds.
Jordan, only weeks after defending his crown at the AR15.COM-Rockcastle Pro Am, again shot strong, posting his highest finish of the season in Tulsa, winning $3,000 from SureFire. Meanwhile, Butler won two stages and finished third for the third time this season, earning a $2,000 payday from SureFire.
Adam Popplewell continued his strong 2013 3GN Pro Series campaign to finish fourth, while Joel Turner, in only his first season the Pro Series, picked up a stage win and cracked the top five for the first time. Fellow newcomer BJ Norris finished sixth, followed by another Pro Series rookie in Ravin Perry, 2012 3GN Champion Tommy Thacker, Colt’s Clint Upchurch and Stag Arms Kalani Laker rounded out the top 10.
On the final event of the inaugural 3GN Lady Pro Series Tour, presented by Samson Manufacturing, Lena Miculek continued her dominance with her fourth consecutive pro win of the season. Lena won three of five stages to top her mother, Kay, by approximately 13 seconds. FNH USA’s Dianna Liedorff finished third, while veteran pistol shooter Randi Rogers picked up a stage win on her way to a fourth place finish. Rogers’ score catapulted her up the 3GN rankings enough to overtake SureFire’s Maggie Reese for the fourth and final slot to the 3GN Lady Pro Series Shoot-Off in Las Vegas.
January’s Rumble on the Range will feature Rogers, the fourth seed, versus defending champion and number one overall seed Lena Miculek. The opposing bracket will feature third-seeded Liedorff versus Kay Miculek, the two seed. This will be the third consecutive meeting in the 3GN Lady Shoot-Off for K. Miculek and Liedorff, with the elder Micuelk taking both of the previous meetings.
The final match saw Reese finish fifth, followed by Megan Snyder, Sharon Griffin and Karla Herdzik. Griffin’s score was enough to keep her in the coveted six slot in the final 3GN standings, behind Reese. The remaining field will now be required to come back to Tulsa for the 3GN Pro Series Qualifier if they wish to retain their 3GN Lady Pro Series Tour card for 2014.
