ACCOKEEK, MD (January 12, 2012) – Two members of Benelli’s 3-Gun Competition Team, Taran Butler and Jeff Cramblit, have qualified for the 3-Gun Nation Championship Finale, Rumble on the Range, that will be held on January 18th during the 2012 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
This end of season invitational match brings the top eight shooters in the nation together in a man-on-man elimination format to see who will be named the top 3-gun shooter. The match carries a total prize purse of $50,000.

“We’re really pleased to be involved in the 3-gun sport with a group of shooters like Team Benelli, who are wonderful ambassadors for the shooting sports, the Benelli brand and the shooting industry as a whole,” said Jeff Cramblit.
“Taran and Jeff are two outstanding shooters for Team Benelli,” said Stephen McKelvain, Benelli USA’s VP Marketing & Communications. “They’re both at the top of their game and will certainly give the other shooters a “run for the money!”
