I started shooting in 1999.  A good friend Will Smith took me under his wing to show me the finer points of shooting.  Will showed me almost
everything I know today about shooting.  Once I started to get the basics down we decided to try IDPA.  Once I got a taste of competition
shooting i was hooked.  For the next few years IDPA shooting was all I did.  In 2005 I decided to really try USPSA.  I found with this style
of shooting it gave the shooter the ability to shoot the stage to their style of shooting.  I immediately loved USPSA.  I started USPSA with a
Para P18 that first year.  I was lucky that Ed Cameron from Cameron’s Custom Inc was graceful enough in helping me to get into an open gun. 
From that day forward Ed Cameron put me on his shooting team.  Over the years I have met and learned from some of the great names in this sport. 
Every day I look forward in going to the range to see the guys, gals and the competition that is at the range.

Craig Outzen
DSC 0042

Craig Outzen is a 20yr. professional Fireman/Paramedic with the rank of Captain working for the Unified Fire Authority (UFA) in Salt Lake County UT.  He is also a Reserve Officer for the Unified Police Department (UPD). His drive to excel and perform at the highest levels has resulted in extensive time spent assigned to specialty units in both departments. He has spent many years in the UFA’s Heavy Rescue Program, Recruit Instructor Cadre as well as serving as a SWAT Team member and Firearms Instructor for the UPD.  In addition, Craig is an active member of Utah Task Force 1, one of 28 FEMA Urban Search and Rescue Teams located throughout the nation. He holds multiple certifications (Rescue Specialist, Medical Specialist, and Heavy Rigging Specialist) and has deployed multiple times with UTTF-1 including the World Trade Center on 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and the Boulder Colorado floods in 2013.

A lifetime firearms enthusiast, he began shooting trap competitively as a young boy. After completing college and establishing his career he began shooting action pistol matches and eventually shot his first multigun match in 2005.   The unlimited challenge and complexity of 3 Gun soon grew to become his sole shooting focus.  Given his passion for 3 Gun and his drive for performance, Craig has become one of the most formidable multigun shooters in the nation.   He has been a perennial qualifier and participant in the 3 Gun Nation Pro Series since its inception in 2010 and is a consistent top competitor at any national level event he attends (14 events in 2015).  An additional highlight to his shooting career has been representing the US National Team in Hungary at the 2012 and again in Italy at the 2015 International Practical Shooting Confederation World Shotgun Championships.

In 2017 Craig will be adding more Precision Rifle competitions in an effort to broaden his shooting skill and experience. He has also been chosen as a representative of Team USA as they travel to Moscow Russia for the inaugural IPSC World Rifle Championship. This will be the third time he has been chosen to represent the USA on the world’s competition stage.

For the past several years Craig has not only maintained his shooting activities but also coupled extensive product and manufacturer representation into the mix as well. Not only does he maintain an active social media presence, but he also has been involved with the marketing, advertising, testing, and development of multiple products. He utilizes his gregarious and affable personality to consistently create positive interactions with all of the many individuals he meets during his active competition schedule.

In recent years Craig has also begun combining his experience teaching with his exceptional shooting knowledge to instruct both newcomers and seasoned competitors alike. Most notably he has been a repeat instructor at the MGM Targets 3 Gun Junior Camp. MGM camps have become renowned for helping to produce the next crop of responsible gun owners and competitive shooting superstars. The reward of working with junior shooters has been one of the very best experiences of his shooting career.

 







Travis Gibson
Travis GibsonTravis started shooting at 32 after deciding there was just too big of a chance for an ambulance ride with motocross and bull riding. 
Shooting is so much safer!

Travis started with USPSA early in 2006, but after shooting his first 3 gun match, he decided that was going to be his primary focus. 
Requiring the shooter to be skilled with rifle and shotgun as well as pistol is what makes 3 gun such a challenge for him.  Other shooting
disciplines he regularly competes in are long range rifle, USPSA, Steel Challenge, and International Defensive Pistol Association.  Travis
is sponsored by the following companies:

MGM Targets - Colt Competition Rifles - Cabelas - Hornady - Vortex Optics - Warne Scope Mounts

Safariland - Crye Precision - COM Kydex - Schuemann Barrels - Yeti Coolers

My name is Wyatt Gibson and I am 18 years old. Shooting has been a big part of my life since I was about 6 years old.  I started to shoot by helping my grandpa test targets for his steel target company MGM Targets. I gradually became more accurate and soon I decided to shoot my first local pistol match. At age 6 the only people I would beat were the people that got disqualified, but I had an absolute blast shooting with my parents and grandparents. Every weekend we would go to the local match at 6 o'clock in the morning to help set up and then shoot the match and then help teardown. About 3 years later my dad started competing in 3 gun. I went and shot a 3 gun match with him but didn't care as much for it as pistol matches. 

 Ever since I can remember our family has been holding the MGM Iron Man 3 gun. I always would help set up and teardown but I had never shot it. Every year everyone would ask if I was going to shoot the match but I would always say maybe next year. At 12 years old I finally decided to try my hand at the intimidating MGM Iron Man. The day before the match I made up my mind to compete in trooper division.

 In trooper division I had to carry not only my gear but all of my ammo for the day, but I was allowed an ammo can in the trooper shack. I could store any extra ammo I had in it for the match. No one was allowed to help me carry my 3 guns and ammo, I couldn't carry my stuff little by little to the next stage and I couldn't accept anything from anyone. That includes ammo, food, or any other gear like guns, bipods or magazines. So I was pretty much on my own.

 My second three gun match, ever, had started. I timed out on every stage but I had an amazing time! My second day didn't go as well as the first. A broken extractor on my shotgun moved me into scoped tac because I had to use my dad’s shotgun to finish the match. After my experience at the Iron Man I was hooked… goodbye pistol hello 3 gun! 

 At this point my parents and I started to travel to matches like the Rocky Mountain 3 gun and the Superstition Mystery Mountain 3 gun. I love to travel and I love shooting 3 gun. 

 My first couple years of 3 gun I was always at the bottom of the results. Slowly without me noticing, I moved up the list. 5 years later I now have amazing sponsors; Colt Competition Rifles is my main sponsor. My other sponsors are:
