Come meet James this weekend in person at CCPRC Saturday afternoon for set up and Sunday morning for our CC3-Gun monthly match.

James Gill will be Guest Match Director for CC-3Gun June match 6/7/15!

Here is a little bit about James in his own words:

Born in San Antonio, TX to John and Mary Gill. My grandfather and father were in the Navy, and that influenced me to join the Marine Corps in 2004.

In 2005, I did my first tour in Afghanistan, and in 2006 I did my second tour in Iraq. In April of 2006, I was severely wounded by two IED explosions. I ended up losing my right leg, my left eye, and suffered a traumatic brain injury. I was then sent home to San Antonio to BAMC and the Center for the Intrepid for physical therapy. In June 2008, I had a revision to my amputation due to a staph infection. Soon after, I discovered my passion for Competitive Shooting.

My interest in Competitive Shooting really began as a rebellion against not being allowed to requalify for rifle after I was injured. I was considered a “liability” due to having only one eye now. Oh the irony…. as fate would have it, I would later become the head coach for the United States Marine Combat Shooting team and the first Marine to become a professional shooter in 3Gun. What started as a hobby, quickly turned into a dream job.

In 2010, I re-enlisted and became the Head Coach for the Marine Combat Shooting Team.

Unfortunately, on November 30, 2014 I was medically retired from the Marine Corps.

I obtained a few awards and some expertise during my time in the Corps:

* Recipient of two Purple Hearts

* Certified NRA Instructor

* Head Coach/Competitor/Instructor/Armorer United States Marine Combat Shooting Team

* Combat Marksmanship Coach United States Marine Corps

* High Risk Personel Instructor United States Marine Corps

* Small Arms Artillery Repairer United States Army Ordnance School

* Tactical Combat Casualty Care United States Marine Corps

* Formal School Instructor Course United States Marine Corps

* Foreign Weapons Instructor Course United States Marine Corps

* Infantry Rifleman Course United States Marine Corps

* Recruit Training United States Marine Corps

* Patrol Leader/Designated Marksman/Radio Transmission Operator 3rd Battalion 3rd Marines Kilo Company

* Began shooting USPSA in 2006 (A class Open Limited)

* Began 3Gun in 2008, qualified for pro in 2013.

Besides the above he also helped several gun clubs back east develop their 3-Gun programs into class acts. OK, looks like James is very qualified to help CCPRC with the CC3-Gun program, hope to see you out there to help and to meet James.

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that gathered mud with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in South Texas now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their carbine’s cheap whiles any speaks
That shot with us this our March monthly 3-gun match.

Thank you to everyone that came to shoot!

March 8 match is ready to go!

Our monthly match for tomorrow Sunday March 8 is set and ready.  We decided with the threat of rain to set up 4 stages and not 5.  We decided not to set up the “rabbit run” stage as it was rather involved with some heavy targets in case it does rain.  All the volunteers noted we have three really fun stages set along with the qualifier.  We will be here early to send out an email if we have a weather issue.

Remember to set your clocks ahead an hour tonight.

The 3-Gun match was a success today. Thanks to everyone that came out to shoot the 3-Gun match. We had several first time 3-Gun shooters, always good to see new recruitment. Many thanks to those that helped set up and those that helped tear down and store the match. Thanks to CCPRC board members Bill Fowler, Jeff Hyde and our President Byron Hough who came out to shoot, and they either helped set up and/or tear down.

Here is the link to the scores:

Again thanks to everyone that came to shoot.

match is set and ready for Sunday

We are ready for the 2/8 monthly match, and sun is the order for the day.  We will have a prize table and door prizes.

update for February 8 monthly match

We will waive the entire  entry fee for shooters that come to help set up at the club on Saturday afternoon.  To receive a full discount of entry fee you must show up to help by 3:30 pm Saturday 2/7 and stay to help set up until finished or 6:00 pm.  When you arrive sign in with manager Craig Cook or match director Ross Williams.

As noted earlier If we finish in time we will let volunteers have a practice round with our stage “Texas Run & Gun”. This is a balanced stage for all three guns.  There is close in pistol and shotgun work with rifle out to about 120 yards that requires some movement between elements.

The weather forecast for this weekend is looking good.  The question will be how much rain we have today and tomorrow and if it will dry up enough by the weekend.  Hope it does and hope you will come out to support your club and our efforts to service the 3-Gun community.
