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.
