DPMS Shooter James Darst Wins 3GN Shoot-Off DEC 07, 2010 03:42P.M. DPMS Shooter James Darst Wins 3GN Shoot-Off, $5,000

Nebraska Game and Parks Commission LINCOLN, Neb. --(Ammoland.com)- James N. Douglas has been named deputy director of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission by Director Rex Amack. Douglas has served the agency as administrator of the Wildlife Division since 1994. DPMS Shooter James Darst Wins 3GN Shoot-Off “Jim Douglas has demonstrated outstanding skills in planning, administration, personnel management, and budgeting,” Amack said. “He has broad-based experiences and proven abilities to effectively interact with the Board of Commissioners, staff, governmental entities, and conservation partners in working to meet the Commission’s mission.” Amack said Douglas’ appointment to the newly created position is effective immediately. “I look forward to working with Director Amack, our commissioners, staff, and partners to meet the many complex challenges that face our agency in managing Nebraska’s wildlife and parkland resources,” said Douglas, who has a Bachelor of Science degree in Wildlife Biology and a Master of Arts in Management.

up an otherwise frigid winter day.

Darst’s first win on the 3GN Tour couldn’t have come at a better time: the 3GN Shoot-Off, co-branded with Fort Benning 3-Gun Challenge’s already successful shoot-off venue, saw an impressive prize table. Not only did Darst walk away with a Lancer lower for placing second overall in the Open division, but his Shoot-Off performance netted him a DPMS 3G1 rifle fitted with a Leupold 1.1-8X CQBSS, along with a SureFire Muzzle Brake and Micro Fast-Attach Suppressor—all in addition to the $5,000 check from the NSSF.

Such was the range of emotions displayed as DPMS’ James Darst won three breathtaking match-ups on his way to the most closely contested Shoot-Off to date on the FNH USA 3-Gun Nation Tour, Presented by SureFire. The win netted the veteran 3-gunner a check for $5,000, courtesy of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF). “NSSF is proud to support 3-Gun Nation,” said Chris Dolnack, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, NSSF.

Butler, who also claimed the rifle package for finishing second, qualified for his record sixth 3GN Shoot-Off by winning the Tactical Optics division in the Fort Benning 3-Gun Challenge. His road to the finals included a first-round win over Bryan Ray, winner of the Heavy Metal division, and a second-round win over Robby Johnson, which provided a bit a drama.

“Three-gun competition is quickly gaining popularity with new and experienced shooters nationwide and 3-Gun Nation is the perfect vehicle to promote this fast-growing sport. We hope our partnership with 3-Gun Nation only will further its success in captivating a broad audience with the fun and excitement of the shooting sports.”

On their first run, Johnson jumped out to an early lead on rifle, cruised through shotgun, and was first to the stop plate. But upon inspection of the targets, Johnson failed to break one of the clay birds, thereby voiding his run. But Butler, assuming he was defeated, stopped midway through the pistol rack, not finishing the course of fire. Range Master Daniel Horner and Match Director Aaron Hampton consulted, and a re-shoot was granted. And on the second run, it was all Butler, who used his second chance to advance to the final round of the 3GN Shoot-Off for a record third time.

Darst’s remarkable run began with a first-round match-up against Noveske’s Rob Romero, winner of the 3GN Shoot-Off following FNH Midwest 3-Gun in May. At the horn, Romero exploded out of the start box and was first to the gun table, cleaning the rifle rack and building an early lead he maintained through shotgun and into the final pistol plate rack. But Romero stumbled, just slightly, missing on a pistol plate; and that’s when Darst came roaring on by. Darst went one-for-one on the pistol rack, before missing the stop plate once and then knocking it down just a fraction of a second before Romero—an incredible finish.

In another twist, Tactical Irons winner Kurt Miller, who had been battling the flu all weekend, decided he was too ill to perform in the FB3G-3GN Shoot-Off. So he turned over his slot to Katie Harris, an upand-coming 14-year-old junior shooter from Georgia. Harris, who drew Johnson in the first round, was impressive in her 3GN debut, racing first to the rifle and building a small, early lead over the former U.S. AMU soldier. But Johnson prevailed, setting up his second-round match-up with Butler.

In the second round, it was more of the same, as Darst faced 3GN newcomer Greg Jordan, who qualified out of Tactical Optics. This time, it was Darst who raced out to the early lead as Jordan struggled on the rifle. However, Darst dropped one shot on the shotgun as Jordan pushed the pace and ran the shotgun portion cleanly. Darst dropped one plate on the pistol rack as Jordan continued to close the gap; but Darst had just enough of a lead, as he knocked over his stop plate a mere half-second before Jordan. The finish left Darst visibly spent as he walked off the firing line before a roaring crowd.

In the consolation rounds, Romero knocked off Open division winner Clint Upchurch, and Bryan Ray defeated Harris, to win a pair of HK P30L 9 mm pistols. For advancing to the semi-finals, Johnson and Jordan took home a pair of 12-gauge FNH USA SLP shotguns.

With two narrow escapes under his belt, Darst stepped to the line for the final run against Taran Butler. Racing even to the gun table, Darst opened up an early lead by cleaning the rifle plates first. But then Butler accelerated through an amazing shotgun run, narrowing the lead to an easy closing distance going into the final pistol rack. Butler, known as one of the fastest pistol shooters in the country, with several USPSA and IDPA titles to his credit, was now in contention.

The eight-person 3GN Shoot-Off is a format like no other, where competitors take on steel rifle, shotgun and pistol targets in a race to the stop plate. To level the playing field, each competitor uses the same firearms. At the Fort Benning 3-Gun Challenge, those firearms included: DPMS 3G1 rifles topped with Leupold 1.1-8X CQBSS riflescopes and fitted with SureFire Muzzle Brakes and Micro Suppressors; shotguns were FNH USA SLP’s; and pistols used were HK P30L’s.

But Darst, known more for his rifle skills than his pistol shooting, as he had in his two earlier match-ups, laid down a phenomenal pistol run of his own, missing only one plate as Butler narrowed the gap. Darst transitioned to the stop plate first, a half-second ahead of Butler, who ripped four successive shots at his own stop plate in an effort to pound it past Darst’s already moving plate. But in the end, it was Darst’s plate that fell first, giving the Texan his first 3GN victory.

The next stop on the FNH USA 3-Gun Nation Tour, Presented by SureFire, is Superstition Mountain Mystery 3-Gun, March 25-27, 2011, in Mesa, Arizona. Superstition will mark the third qualifying event on the 2011 3GN Tour, before the following points matches: Blue Ridge Mountain 3-Gun, MGM Ironman, JP Enterprises Rocky Mountain 3Gun, Adams Arms Ozark 3-Gun Championship, and USPSA Multi-Gun Nationals. The Tour will conclude following the FNH USA-3-Gun Nation

USDA Program Prioritizes Habitat Enhancement Tags: Conservation News, Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, TRCP, USDA

Sportsmen are celebrating a victory with the announcement of new federal measures in support of private-lands conservation. Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Agriculture issued a final rule for the federal Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program that adds a new national priority to restore and enhance wildlife habitat – much of which is important to game species.

The new WHIP national priority is “to protect, restore, develop or enhance important migration and other movement corridors for wildlife.”

This new focus complements the four existing national WHIP priorities that focus on activities benefitting native fish and wildlife habitats, conservation of at-risk species, protection of declining or important aquatic wildlife and reducing the impacts of invasive species on fish and wildlife habitat. Authorized under the 2008 Farm Bill, WHIP is a voluntary program for conservation-minded landowners who want to develop and improve fish and wildlife habitat on agricultural and private land. Since its establishment in 1997, the program has resulted in habitat improvements on approximately 6.5 million acres nationwide. The program provides cost-share funding to farmers, ranchers and private landowners for projects ranging from removing barriers to fish migration in New England to establishing native warm-season grasses in the Southeast. The TRCP long has advocated for increased measures to conserve fish and wildlife habitat and hunter access in the Farm Bill and is pleased to see the USDA highlighting programs that improve fish and wildlife habitat, sustain our waters and conserve energy.

Too Much Freedom..? DEC 07, 2010 11:26A.M. Too Much Freedom..?

The tendency of politicians is not to constrain the government, but to constrain the people under the control of government. You and I have become subjects. Subjects of an establishment class hell bent on restricting your right to defend yourself and your family. Politicians don’t trust you. They think they can protect you better than you can protect yourself. The good news is that you can do something about your freedom across the USA and Georgia Gun Owners are working hard right here in Georgia. By working together, you and I can remove the government from the gun business. It won’t happen unless you and I put pressure on our elected officials. By demanding that our elected officials publicly support, cosponsor, and call for a recorded, up or down roll-call vote on the Georgia REAL Right-to-Carry Bill, liberty activists can separate the good guys from the bad guys.

Too Much Freedom..? **

You and I can see who supports liberty . . . and who supports statism. If you haven’t yet done so, please demand your legislators vote in favor of liberty.

Georgia Gun Owners

With your help, you and I can hold politicians accountable who think there is such a thing as “too much freedom.”

Kennesaw, Georgia --(Ammoland.com)- Is there such a thing as “too much freedom”?

Yours in liberty,

Have you ever heard anyone say that?

About: Georgia Gun Owners in a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots firearm advocacy organization dedicated to countering the gun control lobby through an aggressive program designed to mobilize gun owners and liberty activists across the State of Georgia, while seeking to enlist public support for legislation that would remove compulsory government requirements for gun owners throughout the state.

Politicians can’t ever seem to get enough. A tinker here. An amendment there. The end result is always the same — the shackles of government become heavier. More burdensome. When it comes to your right to defend yourself and your family, the politicians in Washington and Atlanta have been chipping away for decades. As a consequence, criminals are stronger. They know that the actions of statists in government empower them.
