Industry News: Superstition Mountain Mystery 3 Gun Match Raffle

Here's what we know about it. Hat tip to Sinistral Rifleman for the letting us know, and to KE Arms for supporting competition in general.

Founded in 1996 and now in its' 22nd year, the annual Superstition Mountain Mystery 3 Gun (SMM3G) ranks as one of the longest running and most prestigious 3-Gun matches in the USA. As one of the first “Outlaw Matches”, SMM3G helped to blaze the trail and develop what modern 3 gun has become today. Held at the Rio Salado Sportsman's Club in Mesa, Arizona, SMM3G offers a unique blend of shooting challenges using rifle, shotgun and pistol encompassing close in, ultra-fast paper targets and flying shotgun clays through to precision rifle shots up to 500 yards. Combined with imaginative props and stage designs and a Prize Table that is one of the biggest in the country, it is little wonder why SMM3G ranks so highly on many 3 gunner's “must do” list and is a sell out year after year.

One of the traditions of SMM3G is it's annual raffle. Proceeds from the raffle are used to help fund the Match for the following year to enable the purchase of items such as paper and steel targets, tape and clays through to the building of new props for the various stages.

As a non-profit organization, every dollar earned by SMM3G through the generosity of Sponsors, Match fees and proceeds from the raffle goes back to our shooters, whether it be items for the prize table, construction of new props or purchase of targets, tape and clays. SMM3G is truly a match by shooters for shooters.

Industry News. What are you seeing here? Just as the tagline reads — industry news. This is a product (or service) announcement. It is not an endorsement. It is not a review. It is not an advertisement.

Posts on labeled as Industry News are advisory notifications only. Information contained therein is likely provided by the individual manufacturer (or service provider), provided to RW and passed along to our readers as a notification only. Such articles do not represent our tacit approval, nor (unless labeled SPONSORED) were they paid for. RECOIL publishes not just for a fraction of the gun-owning community, but all of it. Individual editorial staff member opinions are not the sole arbiter of what news we present. What one person derides, another will extol. One of RECOIL's responsibilities is to inform readers of new products or services from manufacturers, training organizations, and the like. RECOIL readers have made it very clear this is something they want to see, and frequently. Some of those products will be chosen for further coverage or evaluation. Some will not. Some may have great promise or potential. Others will do nothing but prove the old adage, A fool and his money are soon parted. Readers should form their own conclusions, if appropriate. Rest assured if a member of the RECOIL staff is providing an opinion, you will know about it.
