Armored doesn’t always equal awkward, even when humping rifle-rated plates – but it can be exhausting.

The match featured several unique divisions:

• Classic: Firearms designed in as issued configured before 1974 with iron sights. Mag capacity was limited to 30 rounds rifle, and pistol to standard capacity magazines.

• Scout: Modern firearms. Rifle could have a single optical sight; pistol must use iron sights. Rifle capacity was limited to 30, and pistol to standard capacity magazines

• Armored: Same as Scout, but add a plate carrier with rifle rated plates must be worn on every stage.

• Sport: Equivalent to Open Division in 3 Gun, no substantial equipment restrictions.

• Armored +P: Rifle Rated plates front and rear, bump or ballistic helmet, all ammo for the entire match carried on person throughout each stage. Firearms equipment and accessories were unlimited as long as it was carried.
