DoubleStar side match at Rock Hard 3 Gun Match.

Winchester, Ky.-( DoubleStar Corp, manufacturers of high-quality, US-made AR components, rifles, pistols, and blades, recently sponsored the Rock Hard 3 Gun match, held at the Rockcastle Shooting Center in Park City, Kentucky, March 1 – 3, 2019. The competitive event benefitted Mission 22, a nonprofit aimed at combating the ever-rising veteran suicide rate. DoubleStar also sponsored a side match during the event. The three-day match raised over $16,000 for Mission 22 from its 175 competitors through match fees, auctions and charitable donations from side stages.

dThe Rock Hard 3 Gun match is designed to test not only shooting ability, but also some other skills not typically utilized in a 3 Gun match. For example, one of the stages featured eight clay pigeons launched from a safe distance aimed at the shooter. Not only did shots from the shotgun count, but if the shooter was able to safely break the incoming clays with any part of his or her body while remaining in the shooter's box, they counted.

The Doublestar sponsored side match featured three DoubleStar Zero Carbines with Vortex AMG UH-1 Holographic Sights for competitors to assemble on the clock and fire one shot at a 50-yard plate. The gun was broken down into four pieces: upper, lower, bolt carrier group and charging handle. Three competitors were able to go at the same time, creating competition against the clock as well as the shooter standing to your left or right. The Doublestar sponsored side match raised $1,025 in donations (six percent of the total raised) for Mission 22.
