Crimson Trace, the leading brand of laser sighting systems for personal protection firearms, announces the return of the most talked about shooting match in the industry: The Midnight 3 Gun Invitational (M3GI). Taking place in complete darkness over two nights, August 16th & 17th, in the high desert of Central Oregon, the 2013 M3GI is poised to once again raise the bar for shooting events in the United States by utilizing lasers and lights to challenge even the most experienced competitors. Event registration is by invitation only - beginning April 2nd, 2013.
Building on the success of the inagural 2012 event, the 2013 M3GI promises a bigger and bolder format with a larger list of invited shooters and media members, more stages, and even more "toys" to play with. With the help of sponsors like Danner®, Daniel Defense®, ERGO Grip®, FLIR®, FNH USA®, Leatherman®, MGM Targets™, Nosler®, OTIS Technology™, Primary Weapons Systems®, Remington®, Warne Scope Mounts™, and many others, some of the greatest shooters on the planet will battle through 9 stages over two nights of intense and challenging competition. Competitors may use laser sights, tactical lights, infrared (IR) and thermal imaging in an effort to grab up to $10,000 cash, plus the greatest prize table in the industry.
"The response we received after the inagural event from the media, industry partners, and 3 Gun community was overwhelming," said Kent Thomas, Director of Marketing for Crimson Trace. "There's no question that the Midnight 3 Gun Invitational set an incredibly high bar for us and we do love a challenge, so we've got some pretty big new plans in the works for this year. With the support of some of the best brands and sponsors in the industry and the highest caliber shooters in the country, I'm confident the 2013 Midnight 3 Gun Invitational will have people buzzing all year."
All invited participants who register by May 15th, 2013 will receive free Crimson Trace products to shoot the match, as well as other items from the M3GI sponsors. Shooters who register after May 15th, 2013 will be "wait listed" and subject to a late entry fee.
