In 2017, 3-Gun Nation will sponsor five championship matches leading up to a final competition at 3GN Nationals on Nov. 11-12 at Virginia International Raceway. The regionals schedule is designed to provide as many opportunities as possible for 3-gun shooters to get into a match.

One major change this year is that all 3GN Pro Series events will move to Regional Series event weekends, which creates a more high-profile weekend for all 3GN members. Every regional event will feature one side shoot, which will be either Shotgun Speed or pistol matches. The events will also feature a prize table-only event with a reduced fee for members.

In addition, every event in 2017 will feature 3GN Training, which allows members to get involved by attending classes or trying out a side match. The 3GN 2017 series schedule is as follows:

Southeast Regional Championship
