When the clock is ticking in the sport of 3-Gun, any occasion when you’re not shooting or moving is wasted time.

These run-and-gun matches demand a substantial amount of equipment beyond the pistol, rifle and shotgun trio. Understanding how to choose specialized gear and deploy it properly will improve your times and make you a stronger competitor. While equipment alone won’t make you a champion, the proper 3-Gun gear helps most shooters build confidence.

From trigger upgrades to appropriate footwear, this list of gear will make your 3-Gunning experience more enjoyable and give you an edge over the competition.
