Formerly known as the Babes with Bullets 3-Gun Challenge, the Run & Gun Challenge addresses the challenges of acquiring ammo, as well as the need to transport multiple firearms. The change in format ultimately makes it easier for more ladies to participate by using a single firearm, and to meet the growing demand for female-friendly matches without excluding the guys. The match features two shooting domains, with a goal of having an equal number of female and male participants. All match participants shoot the same stages of fire, with the Women’s Domain and Men’s Domain scored separately.
The event, presented by Fiocchi USA, Mossberg, and Hi-Viz Sights, will take place at the Cameo Shooting Complex in Grand Junction, Colorado. This beautiful new facility offers competitors the opportunity to see one of the newest, most modern shooting ranges in the country. WiFi is accessible throughout the facility and it also offers UTV rentals just in case attendees prefer to load equipment up and tool around this 2,000+ acre event center.
