OSAGE, Missouri - The U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit's Daniel Horner defeated Noveske's Rob Romero in the finals of the FNH USA 3-Gun Nation Shoot-Off, Presented by SureFire, winning $5,000 courtesy of Adams Arms and Samson Manufacturing following the Adams Arms Ozark 3-Gun Championship here Sept. 26.
The event capped an incredible two weeks for Horner that began with a victory at USPSA Multi-Gun Nationals, earning him a Wild Card spot in the 3-Gun Nation Championship. From there, Horner earned the top seed in the 3GN Championship Shoot-Off before running the table against Kerry Dematos, Tony Holmes, Dave Neth and Bruce Piatt.
Along with claiming the inaugural 3GN Championship, the win netted Horner $25,000 from Leupold.
During the 3GN Shoot-Off, Horner looked unbeatable early on, successively knocking out past 3GN winner Taran Butler and Bryan Ray, an unsponsored competitor who qualified by winning the Heavy Metal division.
However, in the finals, Horner had what was likely his slowest run since a first-round loss to Remington's Robby Johnson at JP Enterprises Rocky Mountain 3-Gun in August.
But Romero had equal problems on the rifle barricade, unable to capitalize as Horner struggled to settle his sights before finally finding his rhythm.
Ultimately, Horner recovered first, left the rifle position with a comfortable lead and held on for the victory.
In the semi-finals, Romero defeated Chris Sechiatano, setting up the showdown with Horner.

LAS VEGAS - A full season of blistering multi-gun competition came to an exciting climax as Daniel Horner defeated Bruce Piatt in the final round of the 2010 FNH USA 3-Gun Nation Championship Shoot-Off.
Horner is currently assigned to the action shooting team at the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit at Ft. Benning, Georgia. As the defending USPSA Multi-Gun National Champion, Horner qualified for the Shoot-Off as a wild card entry based on his repeat win of the national title only a day earlier. Even with his recent year-long deployment to Afghanistan, Horner showed the field that he had lost none of his shooting skills over the prior 12 months.

Some of the top 3-gunners in the nation, such as M3GI 2013 winner Daniel Horner, have set the bar high for other competitors.
Daniel Horner: Winning at 3 Gun
So what strategy does Horner deploy to shoot his way into the winner's circle at the nation's premier nighttime 3-Gun event? He practices for the night competition by shooting at night. As an Army soldier, Horner also teaches shooting skills, including shooting in darkness.
"We do quite a bit of night time shooting with night vision and lasers, so it was a pretty easy transition to the 3-Gun world," states Horner. "However, I did learn a few things to bring back from the competition world to make me a better instructor for soldiers. " Yes, he and many shooters use 3-gun competitions as a learning experience. The 3-Gun competitions help shooters learn about gear-and how to better use it.
"I put the (Crimson Trace) lasers on every gun and co-witnessed them to the sights," Horner continued in explaining his winning strategy.
"If I could give one tip to everybody, it would be to know your equipment, and keep it simple," noted Horner. "A light, a laser and a button for both should be the only change you make to your normal guns. I love the quote 'Beware the man with only one gun. He might know how to use it.' I pretty much live by that. Remember to be certain to check the gear restrictions for the event you plan to compete in.
Horner also does something few other 3-gunners do-he shoots while constantly moving. Many competitors stop or briefly pause before they move their trigger finger and shoot at a target. Horner (a member of the US Army Marksmanship unit) seems to always be on the move-and shooting.
Horner is widely recognized as one of the top 3-gunners in America now, and he's earning the checks and shooting the scores to prove it. He won $10,000 at the recent Crimson Trace 2013 Midnight 3-Gun Invitational. Not bad for two long nights of work involving running-and gunning.

Except for Daniel Horner of the AMU, everyone thought that stage was ridiculous. Using the beautiful Beretta on a double wobble system, the clays came out at the same time in different directions and at speeds well beyond even international rules. If you hit them you were lucky. Or you were Daniel Horner who had an Olympic skeet shooter train him for the last 3 months. No fair dude.
Congratulations to Daniel Horner of the Army Marksmanship Unit for winning the big $50K check.
