“This year’s competition will feature an added bonus for the top eight overall finishers as they will have the chance to walk away with a $5,000 payday compliments of SIG SAUER,” said Starlight organizer Jim Shepherd. “But, in order to do so, the winner will have to survive three rounds of competition against some of the most skilled 3-gun shooters known to man.”
After competing in four seeded preliminary rounds, the four divisional winners will move on to the semi-final round. From there, the top two shooters will advance on to the SIG SAUER Championship Stage. The final stage will consist of a best 2 out of 3 format, with the final winner taking home the coveted cash prize. Through all rounds of competition, competitors will be required to use the SIG SAUER MCX® rifle, MPX® carbine and the P320® pistol. This exciting new head-to-head elimination format is sure to bring added intensity and drama for competitors and spectators alike.
“SIG SAUER is excited to serve as the Championship Stage sponsor for this year’s Starlight 3-Gun match,” said Chief Marketing Officer & Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales Tom Taylor. “An all-new format will pit competitors in a head-to-head shoot-off until only one remains, making it one event that nobody will want to miss. Add to it the fact that winner will be decided in the dark of night and that all finalists will be using SIG SAUER firearms, certainly adds to the allure of this one-of-a-kind competition.”
The 2017 Starlight 3-Gun match has been designed to be even bigger and better than ever with over $100,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs. Utilizing a spectator-friendly format, this year’s event will feature sponsor exhibits, on-site musical entertainment and some of the best action shooting possible. Designed to recognize the athletic prowess of today’s top professional shooters, the Starlight 3-Gun is set to challenge even the most skilled competitor with low-light scenarios and intricate stage layouts.
