Now equipment just got complicated, 3-Gun! Like everybody else, when I first got into 3-Gun, my gear was kind of cobbled together from what I had on hand, and the experience was… Less than optimal to say the least. Once I had a chance to practice a little and use some good equipment, I saw what everybody has been raving about.
- NEMO Arms Battle-Light 15.
- 18″1/8 twist barrel with .223 Wydle chamber and Miculek Compensator

- Optics- Leupold Mark 6 1-6x20MM for Outlaw 3 Gun, Leupold VX-6 1-6x24MM for 3 Gun Nation Pro Series
I’ve got to start by saying this rifle is just amazing. NEMO’s main focus is building awesome things like the OMEN, a 300 Win Mag AR style platform, but I started working with them to create a presence in competitive shooting as well.
I couldn’t be happier with the way the rifle turned out, and the proof is in the results. About a week after I got the rifle, I took it up to the FNH USA 3 Gun in Glengary, WV and won the Tac-Irons title. Not too bad for it’s first outing.I’m really looking forward to giving this thing a full workout next year.
While better known for their pump shotguns, Mossberg is making a mean auto with the the 930 series. It runs on a gas piston system similar to the Winchester SX2 shotgun, so it soaks up the recoil and functions great. While I have made a few modifications from the factory configuration, I shot for a longtime with it straight out of the box before learning exactly what I wanted. If you’re looking for a gun that you can buy and start shooting and not spend $2,000, the Mossberg 930 JM Pro is the shotgun to have.
