About Us

Open Source Shooting Sports (OS-3) is a small grassroots organization focused on providing an alternative, ethics-driven environment for firearms owners that want their voice to be heard.  Though we are trained with self-defense in mind and some of us are CCW instructors, our primary focus is on recreational target sports.  

Run by a team of firearms instructors, hunters, competitors, gunsmiths, and firearms enthusiasts, our mission is to leave a positive impact on society free of any singular political alignment.

We foster collaboration and empathetic dialogue around the subject of the guns in today’s culture.
