To our Shooting Industry Partners:


We invite you to become a sponsor for the 11th annual Generation III Gun Championship.  As you may know, the sport of 3-Gun competition is the fastest growing of the practical/action shooting sports with participation increasing dramatically every year, especially by juniors. 


Generation III Gun is an exciting nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization focused on promoting the competitive shooting sports to juniors. Junior shooters are the future of the 2nd Amendment and our great sport. We will strive to educate juniors about the important role that they will play in the future of firearms in this country through the enjoyment and camaraderie of competitive shooting sports. We aim to become the organization that ensures that every junior shooter that wants to attend a 3-gun match can. Our goal is to reimburse junior shooters for every major 3-gun match entry fee. Once that goal is accomplished, we will focus on our goal of ensuring that any junior that wants to shoot a major match has the resources they need to do so.


The sole fundraiser for Generation III Gun, Inc. is the Generation III Gun Championship held annually at beautiful Lake of the Ozarks in Central Missouri at the Gadsden Shooting Center complex.  The reviews we have seen and heard from last year’s match are all positive.  Our ground crew continue to hit home runs on stage design.  The 2024 match will be held September 6-8 and will feature 8 stages shot over the course of 3 days. We will have approximately 208 paying shooters (230-250 total including staff and sponsor shooter slots), separated into 16 squads. Each squad will shoot our half-day format. This will provide you the opportunity to talk with current and potential customers whether at the range, or the match hotel.


By becoming a sponsor, you will benefit from many promotional opportunities during and after the match.

Opportunities include free entries to shoot the match, vendor tables, advertisement on our website and active social media, handouts of your catalogs and promotional material to all shooters, a banner display and name recognition on the range, at the awards ceremony, and mention on popular shooting forums. 


Our goal is to offer a challenging and fun competition and reward all the competitors with prizes.  Our plan is to offer prizes for those shooters who do not win a firearm, so even if you can only donate something small, it would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you in advance for your support. Our website is up and features our current sponsors  Please call or email with any questions.  Chad Francis at
