USA – ( – For more than three decades the World Speed Shooting Championship has been the one to win for handgun shooters. It’s called the Steel Challenge, and the challenge is to shoot five steel targets for time measured in hundredths of a second. And this year a world record may be broken at the Hogue Ranges in San Luis Obispo, California.

Plus, Georg Luger not only created one of the first semi-auto handguns but also the nine-millimeter cartridge to go with it. The Pistole Parabellum 1908, or the Luger P08, is now one of History’s Guns.

And, another edition of Gun Matchmaker with a young couple testing and choosing a first home-defense gun. Tune in Wednesday to Outdoor Channel!
