Cost is $100 to enter which is certainly reasonable, but this all seems a little overwhelming.
Looking at the BigBen3Gun.com website, they also have 3 Gun matches the second Saturday of every month which is $32 and hopefully will allow me to get some comfort with range safety and my surroundings.
While I am certainly getting ahead of myself, I think the place to start is trying out the Ruger AR-556 MPR which retails for $900. This seems to be a reasonable entry level sporting rifle from a well known manufacturer.
I should also sign up for the BluCore rifle class. It is being held next Thursday, February 8th from 6-9 PM.
In addition getting more comfortable with my pistol is probably a good thing and selecting an entry level holster and tactical belt.
Stoeger M3K is a popular shotgun for 3-gun shooting.
