Man the 3-point contest event that you had was epic. It was great to see everyone around the city come out and support people from different states to come join and support your event. It had great energy in the building and all the shooters were locked in and very competitive.

Hey man just wanted to say awesome event! I’m glad I was apart of it! I’m definitely in on the next one you have! Would have no problem getting 5-10 shooters easily. Also would love to be a sponsor and get a couple of vendor spots. Appreciate it man 



My guy AJ 3point shootout was a very nice event give some of the best shooters in Michigan a chance at 10,000 dollars i had a great time and definitely will be at the next one I believe it will be bigger and better .. Keep grinding my boy 



The event was very fun and competitive. Nice prize pool for the entry free. The structure was organized and we had a nice crowd. I would definitely do it again.

I shot one hundred shots the night before AJ’s three-point contest. Day of, I put up the least amount of points.


That moment awakens the animal in me, now I shoot every day to feed my shooter's touch. You better believe I’m going to be in the next contest, and not for the money, but for the redemption.
