So after a long drive from Colorado we’ve arrived at the 2011 SMM3G match, registered, walked the stages, and dropped in for a visit with Dillon Precision.
No. They won’t let you test-fire a mini gun, even if you ask nicely.
Overall impression is that this match is going to be a good one, with maybe a bit more of a speed componenet to the stages and less super tricky technical stuff than in the last couple of years.
That isn’t to say that there won’t be tricky stuff here. One stage requires you to be strung up in a harness, and another includes something I’ve never seen before: airborne no-shoot clays.
Tomorrow is going to be fun.
One of my favorite things about this match is a fairly minor detail, and that’s the match t-shirt.
All big 3 Gun matches give you the option to buy a t-shirt to commemorate the event, and SMM3G consistently has the best that I’ve ever seen. Using memorable cartoon characters that have obviously been drawn by someone with artistic talent definitely makes the cost worthwhile.
Ok, enough for now. Time to grab some sleep.
