Are there other Grease Guns that you are competing against, or just mostly other MG's? I can't imagine there being a lot of Grease Guns being used in competition. But it sure sounds like you know how to use it.

Congratulations, really great shooting.
I imagine that the MP5 shooters are in awe of what a person like yourself can do with a glob of scrap metal welded together.
If someone told me that this was the first time a Grease Gun artist took a first at KC , I would not be surprised.
You probably made history.

Im not sure what the history is as far as M3s taking a top slot but Im betting its not in recent history. Best Ive done is 2nd the past few years with it but this is my first time being number 1.

It is interesting to watch guys single tap now and on the flip side the others who want to bullet hose the course. 9mm showed itself being little light in certain areas if the shooter did not pay attention to how a target was set

The slow cyclic rate of the grease gun was perceived by the troops as less effective than faster subguns. I guess the Ordnance Department guys were smarter than they were given credit for.
Not to overlook your obvious shooting skills with the M3.

He made some very impressive runs. With some targets set to require multiple hits and hits high up in order to drop them, a .45 had some advantage over the 9mms. Still, it was an impressive display of how effective a subgun can be in the hands of an experienced operator.
The match was very challenging this time as the brilliant and talented course designer (me) ensured that different techniques were required on different stages in order to achieve a high score.
It was a WWI theme course that simulated attacking a trench line and defending against counter-attack.
I ran the course wearing my tin hat and with the bayonet mounted on my Sterling. I thought for certain that I deserved some style points!!
