Nashville, TN -( In the beginning, practical pistol competition was dominated by single stack 1911 design pistols, but then came the enhancements thanks to STI’s high capacity 2011 guns, with double stack magazines. Today, they are carried by police, military units, civilians, and also by the professionals who take the challenge at the STI Limited National Championship in Florida. John Scoutten has our coverage, with analyst Tony Pignato.

Plus, the British rifle with a hexagonal bore! The Confederacy imported the Whitworth Rifle, which introduced long range sniping to the battlefield. Now, it’s one of History’s Guns.

And the best in the sport compete in Tennessee Bullseye. Who can keep it in the X-ring? Tune in to Outdoor Channel!

Having been a NATO quartermaster for 18 years in three different NATO countries ,including Bragg, Berlin (UK) Holland and Italy, I have never seen a box of 5.56 or 7.62 come in 900. A thaosand yes, or for belted 7.62, 800, is, Machine Gun belts. Looks to me as if a ton is missing?
