The First Ever Ladies Three Gun Match

From FMG is this video of the first all ladies three gun match held on November 6th this year. Sponsored by Brownells, this was a very successful event with 200 shooters. From pros to the novice they competed for over $200,000 in prizes donated by the firearms industry.

I for one am glad to see this trend as well as the general increase in lady shooters. It’s good for our sport and good for the industry.

    Looking forward to the day when don’t divide matches by gender and only use a skill/score ranking system, due to the large number of various people represented. However for now, this is great for us as firearm owners and helping break down stereotypes. Eventually we may have the big battle of the sexes like they did in tennis. I can only hope we get all the positive media coverage that did.

      But that would be sexist…..

    Wait, are regular 3 guns matches men only events? Because Sam Colt would have something to say about it 🙂

    Are females prevented from entering into 3 gun comps? I don’t see how a gender restrictive “competition” not based mainly on physical prowess is a benefit to anyone.

    This is exactly the type of thing that doesn’t need to occur.

    A good presentation with a potentially fair-minded premise — thank you. As Jow Blow has pointed out, we should be looking forward to the time when only skills, and not gender, should matter across the board. In the meantime, I do hope, though, that the “battle of the sexes” doesn’t come about because this would only falsely encourage a ridiculous media ( and public ) obsession that really has little to nothing to do with true merit, and everything to do with ratings based on outmoded gender bias.

    Creating events like this, regardless of intent, fuel divisions and inequality.
