3 GUN FAQ
We offer 3 Gun classes from time to time. Email info@northtexasmultigun for more details.
TO Pistol – You are allowed to shoot a pistol in 9mm or larger caliber. The pistol must have iron sights. Magazine capacity is limited by magazine length which is roughly 140mm. That means you can use extended base pads for your magazines to bump capacity of your 9mm up to 22 or so rounds.
TO Shotgun – You are allowed to use a 20 gauge or larger semi-automatic shotgun. 12 gauge is most common. Shotguns must be traditional tube-fed guns. Magazine capacity is limited to 9 rounds at the start. After the start signal you can load more rounds in your gun. As with the pistol, you can only use iron sights or the typical fiber optic sights found on shotguns.
TO Rifle – You are allowed to use a .223 Remington or larger caliber semi-automatic rifle. The AR15 is the most popular. You are allowed one magnified optic. Most shooters run a variable power 1-4X or 1-6X scope. You can use iron sights or a red dot as well, but it may put you at a slight disadvantage on long range targets. You are allowed to run offset iron sights with your magnified optic. Most shooters use a compensator on their rifle. The compensators are limited by size which is typically 1″ diameter and 3″ length. You cannot use bipods in this division – those are limited to Open Division. Magazine capacity is not limited.
Tac Iron / Tac Limited: Tactical Irons, aka Tac Irons, aka TI This division is exactly the same as Tactical Optics, expect you are not allowed a magnified optic on your rifle. You can only use iron sights or a red dot as your sighting system. The shotgun and pistol rules are identical to Tactical Optics.
Open: This is the race gun division. You will see the ray gun looking pistols with compensators and red dots, box fed shotguns with compensators and red dots, and rifles with multiple optics, bipods and huge compensators. Pretty much anything you can think of to go faster is allowed within reason. This division is also one of the most expensive and truly is an equipment race to see who can find the most ammo capacity and speed possible.
Pistol – .45 ACP is the king of calibers here. Magazines are limited to 10 rounds, so stock up on those spare mags mag pouches. Only iron sights on the pistols.
Shotgun – Pump action shotgun. It must be 12 gauge.
Rifle – This division is called Heavy for a reason. You are only allowed to run a .308 caliber rifle with iron sights. Since you’re only shooting irons, chances are you’re going to use up a lot of ammo. The good news is you can only use 20 round rifle mags, so plan on carrying a bunch of them which will be heavy!
