FAIRFAX, Va.- NRA Competitive Shooting Division is proud to announce its entrance into tactical multi-gun or three-gun competitions. The first NRA-sanctioned multi-gun match will be held in Waco, Texas March 28-29, 2009.

Kayne Robinson, Executive Vice President of NRA's General Operations is pleased to further welcome three-gun shooters into the NRA family by way of sanctioning the LaRue Tactical Three-Gun Competition. “Three-gun competitors are a welcome addition to an already outstanding group of competitive shooters,” said Robinson.
“The Special Committee on Multi-Gun Competitions will assist the NRA in developing rules for the competition, developing the stages of fire necessary to run an NRA-sanctioned competition, and training NRA staff to better serve three-gun competitors,” offered Mike Krei, Director of the NRA's Competitive Shooting Division.
