Shooting USA: Long Range Black Powder, Juniors Practical Shooting, and Jerry Miculek World Record

This Week on Shooting USA: Long Range Black Powder, Juniors get coaching in Practical Shooting, and Jerry Miculek re-creates his world record.

Shooting USA – Creedmoor Re-creation
This time it’s black powder, both muzzleloaders and cartridge guns, firing to preserve the famous competition from the past. It’s Creedmoor 135 years later and the famous guns from the period when thousands of spectators turned out to watch long range competition. Then the Army Marksmanship Service Rifle Team teaches reading the wind for their kind of long range competition. More Info…

Where is everybody?
This week it’s Columbia, Missouri for the 30th anniversary of the famed Bianchi Cup NRA Action Pistol Match. And we’ve got John and Mike shooting there for bragging rights.

Brian Speciale is on the way back from Phoenix from the NRA Annual Meeting that jammed the convention center to capacity.

Mike Irvine and Greg Simmons covered a duck calling competition this past weekend for our newest series coming this fall.

And I’ve been taping some new explanations of where the ammo has gone. Those will be linked off the home page of this week, to try to cure the myths, rumors, and the panic buying that’s hit everything from 5.56 rounds to primers.

It’s definitely that busy time of year going up to Memorial Day and the official start of summer.

Have a good week,
