USA – ( – This time, it’s gun racing on historic targets at the World Speed Shooting Championship. It’s been 35 years since Mike and Mike drew up the first Steel Challenge on a napkin. Now it is a tradition and remains a challenge to the top shooters in the handgun sports. John Scoutten breaks down the action from California. And, for the first time, the Pistol Caliber Carbine is allowed to compete!

Then, the list is out from Colt! It’s your first look at the new products that have just been unveiled at SHOT Show. First, there’s the new double-action wheel gun, the Cobra. It’s just one of a few new handguns. Colt is also producing a period-correct M16A1, which is likely to be a favorite among collectors. Tune in for the full line-up, only on Shooting USA on Outdoor Channel, and be sure to watch the preview!

I was excited to see the Colt M16a1 reproduction until I saw the price….
My plans for a 20″, fixed butt stock and fixed carry handle look-alike build will continue.
