    I would go to the IDPA and USPSA websites they will usually list clubs doing competitions. I am not sure who does the 3 gun comps.

    I think 3 gun would be fun but where I am located at they just started a USPSA match in Youngsville. I did my first match last week and had a blast and have now signed up for the next 3 matches they have listed. I think any competition match would be great. If they have 3 gun matches closer to where I live then that would also be a possibility for me.

    It seems like where you are at that there would be more choices for competition.

    Watch tons of YouTube videos. You’ll be a pro in no time.
    Those who live by the sword, get shot by those who don't.

    Your nearest 3 gun matches will be at MCTA in Mississippi or around Gonzales.

    There are zero competitions around Madisonville.

    Your closet competition would be with Tangi at the Amite range, and it is not 3 gun.

    If you really want to 3 gun I would suggest starting with USPSA handgun. The basic approach and procedures are largely the same as is stage planning and safety. It is great practice for 3 gun and there is allot more USPSA in the area than 3 gun. You can do both at the same time, but you will have more opportunity to go to USPSA matches and the skills translates. Don't waste your time with IDPA.
    Currently the only 3 gun matches are in Poplarville, Byram and Gulport in Ms. Some match info can be found here, https://smsps.com , and on Facebook search MCTA Occasionally they put on 3 gun matches in Gonzales (East Ascension Practical Shooters).
    Just get your pistol first and start shooting. As you get the guns and gear together, you can start dipping into 3 gun.

    Look on FaceBook at Gulf Coast / USPSA & Louisiana Shooters Connection. They post 3-Gun information. What Big Sam said about start with the handgun and go from there.
