Competitor Reviews

"I really enjoyed this match. I found it well ran, and the stages were fun and challenging (some more so than others, that 648lb ruck was rough, lol.)  There were no 15 second stages in this match, there was a lot of thought and effort put into stage design and the stages were ran by Army people in advance and tweaked, it was what I expected in stage design of a major match. I believe this lead to a smooth running match. Fort Benning matches are known for their cool props, and this year was no exception."

 

"My hat is off to the MWR, the food vendor onsite had good food, was open for breakfast and the practically free meal ticket to the food trailer was nice. The restroom trailers were a nice touch. The tents and chairs at each stage were nice also."

 

"Registration was easy and getting on post with all of our gear was very smooth. There was obviously a lot of communication in advance of our arrival to make this part so easy on the competitors."

 

"Sign me up for next year already, except for Stage 10 -  I found it rather evil."


"Lots of help from many members of the Army meant little reset, lots of afternoon off time for naps or whatever, efficiently ran, great food on sight for nearly free, set on Fort Benning with full auto stage guns and a working tank on stages."

 

Put on by some of the best shooters in the country and themed stages full of props - I just can’t say enough! I’m counting down to next year already and I have shot nearly every major match in the country!"

 

"This was a phenomenal match.  The stages were well thought out and challenging.  The props and stage guns were a great addition.  This was the best run match I’ve shot as well."

 

"This match was a ton of fun!!!  My best shooting during the match came on Stage 10 - with the SAW!  I’m thinking of changing divisions,"

 

"Where else can you sit on an Abrams, sit in a Bradley, and rail away with a SAW?  The AMU is beyond professional and did a great job with both experienced shooters as well as newer shooters such as myself.  No resetting was pretty legit as well, thanks to all that helped out!" 

 

"This match was excellent. The gold standard of 3 Gun matches. The AMU made beautifully designed and constructed stages that tested all skills. The match director set the bar very high for future match directors, here or anywhere. The ROs were superb beyond all previous groups I have seen at any match anywhere. An amazing, outstanding bit of work."

 

"What a privilege to shoot a match at Fort Benning and have access to some of the “tools” a Soldier uses on a daily basis."


"Stages were awesome, but I’m not used to this level of a physical match. I was pretty sore by the third day. I have a list of things to work on for next year. A two day head start on sign ups is great. And I really dig my Kershaw tomahawk from the prize table."
