FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) – Friday, Dec. 4 will kick off the 2015 Fort Benning Multi-gun Challenge at the Krilling Range.

There are more than 180 multi-gun competitors who are set to square off in a three-gun shooting challenge built and overseen by the U.S Army Marksmanship Unit Action Shooting Team members. The scenario-based stages represent some of the Army's most grueling special-skills courses.

Professionals and aspiring multi-gun shooters will test their abilities firing rifles, pistols and shotguns at stationary targets ranging from three to 400 meters, and moving and flying targets.

The match will begin at 7:30 a.m. each day from Dec. 4 until Dec. 6, and an awards ceremony at Krilling Range will begin at 2 p.m. on Dec. 6.

For more information about the multi-gun event contact the Action Shooting Team at (706) 545-8408.
