Recognized as one of the fastest growing shooting sports in America, 3-Gun requires the use of a handgun, rifle and shotgun to engage a wide variety of targets while racing the time clock. To make the Midnight 3-Gun Invitational more challenging, all shooting was done under the cloak of darkness. Competitors were permitted—and encouraged—to use lights and lasers as they shot their way through 9 stages and hundreds of targets. Many chose to use Crimson Trace light and laser products on their firearms.

Among the POMA members at the event to cover or participate were: Mark Chesnut, Josh Dahlke, Ryan Gresham, Kate Krueger, Andy Lightbody, Kat Mattoon, Tom McHale, Frank Miniter, Matt Rice and Jim Shepherd. The winner of the special Media category was Nick Leghorn of Texas. The National Shooting Sports Foundation also sponsors this annual event.

Crimson Trace is the recognized national leader in manufacturing lasers and tactical lights for firearms that are used in hunting, recreational shooting, competitions, and by law enforcement and military personnel around the globe. The company manufactures all products at its headquarters in Wilsonville, Oregon.
