The A3G Salute to Valor is a 3-Gun match designed to honor our Veterans, and to provide assistance and support to six 501(c) 3 Veterans’ charities that are working hard to bridge the gap between available federal resources and the actual needs that exist. These are community-based, privately-funded organizations which have identified those needs that aren’t being met and are working passionately and diligently to do just that.
In addition to raising money, A3G Salute to Valor hopes to raise awareness and increase exposure for our partner charities. This event will be unique in many ways and we are very grateful to our sponsors for their willingness to stand behind this mission.
We look forward to seeing you at South River Gun Club for this year’s event, and for many more to come!
Join A3G in November and take part in a new, unique 3-Gun competition. Rather than using the traditional 3-Gun format, The A3G Salute to Valor will be broken down into four 3-stage “Segments” that are measured and scored individually under the 3*Gun Nation Practical Division Ruleset. Come and test yourself against some of the best shooters in the country in special segments dedicated to Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, and of course: 3-Gun.
Our 180 Shooters will form 12 squads that will be further broken down into 6 teams. Each team will represent one of our 6 charities. The winning team’s charity will receive 20% of the collected funds, with the other charities dividing the remaining fund pool evenly.
The fund pool is being raised through match fees, cash donations, sponsor merchandise donations (which will be auctioned at pre-match online auctions and event-day raffles), as well as merchandise sales. Since this is a charity match, there will not be a traditional prize table, but match fees and sponsor donations will be tax deductible, as a charitable donation, to the full extent allowed by law. All shooters will receive a shooter packet for their participation containing a commemorative shirt, challenge coin, and a one-year complimentary 3*Gun Nation annual membership (existing 3*GN members will receive merchandise). Trophies will be awarded for First, Second and Third place finishers in each Segment and Overall.
Spectators are encouraged to come out to the event and see some of the best shooters in the country compete over the course of the 3 day match. A selection of vendors and other Veteran’s organizations will also be onsite for competitors and spectators to visit and talk to.
