Team Benelli’s Dianna Liedorff Muller and Janna Reeves partnered with Bethany Harris to rack up an impressive top finish in the women’s division at the Colt 3 Man-3 Gun in Topton, PA. All three ladies shouldered Benelli M2s, and Liedorff noted, the results speak for themselves. “This is a match where you have to perform individually, but you also really depend on your teammates,” said Liedorff Muller.
Long-range rifle shots from awkward positions were particularly challenging for both the Team Benelli shooters and the rest of the field. “The 200 yard stage was really make-or-break,” said Liedorff Muller. “Even though we had some difficulty on the long range stage we were still able to keep a lead on the other ladies teams.”

The Colt 3 Gun-3 Man event was a grueling 9-stage mash-up of tactical drills-from relays and “tag-team” chase scenarios, to “rolling thunder” stages where all three shooters fired simultaneously. As a major supporter of the series, Benelli provided three Vinci SpeedBolt shotguns for the winning team in the ladies division. Benelli’s support for 3 Gun and other tactical-style events parallels the growth in tactical shooting sports and equipment, particularly among women shooters.
