Might look up where they shoot at or send them a e-mail for info.

You don't need top equipment for ANY shooting sport !!

PRACTICE is what is needed......... lots of ammo and lots of practice after maybe a class on
the proper stance, grip and safety procedures from an instructor, if you can find one in your area.

Good luck.

I would start with your local gun club. Your 17 so I take it your out of high school, if not check with the S.C.T.P. (Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation ) http://sssfonline.com/, in your area. I see they have a SCHOLASTIC PISTOL PROGRAM You mite be interested in.

I would also call the NRA, and check out the C.M.P. (Civilian Marksmanship Program) http://odcmp.com/

Good Luck, Tom

First of all, use a period in your sentences every now and then. I had a hard time reading that.

Find a club that hosts matches. You can use the USPSA website to find USPSA affiliiated clubs closest to you. If you find a club near you that does, more than likely they'll run 3 Gun as well. (http://www.uspsa.org/locate-uspsa-clubs.php)

Go watch a pistol match or a 3 gun match and talk to the match director. He/she will probably know of someone who would be willing the lend you equipment.
