This Week on Shooting USA: S&W Defensive Pistol Nationals

The theme at the Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor Nationals is “The Big Top,” where competitors shoot carry guns in competition throughout carnival-type courses of fire.

Shooting USA

USA – ( – It’s a carnival of fun at Smith & Wesson, as the stages at the IDPA Indoor Nationals get even more creative. More than 300 competitors tackle a dozen stages under “The Big Top” in Massachusetts, including those competing in IDPA’s new division: Compact Carry Pistol. It’s a run-and-gun match where new shooters test their skills, and the Pro Shooters compete for the National Championship Titles.

Plus, we’re discovering history inside the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s depot. It’s a rare behind-the-scenes look of how gunsmiths build the M1 Garands that could be for you.

Then, the transition from muzzle loading to the metallic cartridge for the U.S. Army. The Trapdoor is one of History’s Guns.  Tune in to Outdoor Channel!
