The Lucas range was the perfect venue for our participants from across the U.S. to gather for the great competition, training, and camaraderie for which A Girl & A Gun is known. 3-Gun University increases visibility for shooting sports and encourage long-term participation in competitive and recreational shooting. Our events are essential to introducing new participants to local ranges, match clubs and opportunities in the firearms industry at large.”
