Wyatt Gibson

My name is Wyatt Gibson and I am 19 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.

I 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!
    USPSA was where I started early in 2006, but after shooting my first 3 gun match, I decided that was going to be my 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 me.
Other shooting disciplines I regularly compete in besides 3 gun are, long range rifle, USPSA, and Steel Challenge.  
I make it to most of the nation’s top 3 gun matches, and I do my very best to be a good representative of all my sponsors.  Great sportsmanship, integrity, friendliness, and patriotism are just a few of the characteristics I try to demonstrate at every event I attend.

In an effort to help grow the shooting sports and give back to the community, I frequently do “ladies only” handgun classes and junior classes at very low rates, or even no charge.  
Due to my busy travel schedule, I’ve had to cut back quite a bit, but over the last couple of years, I’ve started two Steel Challenge clubs in the Treasure Valley that have grown to over 60 participants on a weekly basis.  
Another program I am involved with is the MGM Junior Pistol Camp and the MGM Junior 3 Gun Camp.  It is a competition shooting camp for junior shooters held at Parma Idaho every July.  We have six of the world’s best shooters (multiple national and world championship titles) as instructors for the pistol camp, and are able to take up to 65 kids over the two and a half day class.  We have the same number of instructors for the 2-1/2 day 3 Gun Camp.  This year I was honored to be selected as one of the instructors for the 3 Gun Camp.  We have been told by several parents that this was a “life changing event” for their child.  It is a great program that has produced some of the top shooters in the world.

I have been lucky enough and thankful to represent some great companies that support our competition shooting! I am looking forward to new opportunities this year and getting closer to reaching my goals!

 

Zachary "Zeps" Szczepkowski

I grew up on a farm in the Coal Region of northeast Pennsylvania, and began shooting there as a young child. I shot clay birds often and would hunt on the farm in almost every season. Shooting took up the majority of my time.

I came back to shooting in late 2011. I began with USPSA pistol for a few months and found out about 3 gun soon after. In my first year I did well competing at SMM3G, Pro-Am, USPSA Multi-Gun Nationals and more.

Since then the progression has skyrocketed, with many top 10 Major finishes over the 3 years. I've also been ranked #1 3GN 2015 Semipro and won my division twice at a National level match.

I love supporting our community! I am always responsive and approachable to fellow competitors, everyday shooters, and the interested public.
