Nashville, TN -(  First, at 8 p.m. EST on Wednesday, it’s a new record at the World Speed Shooting Championship, the Steel Challenge in California. The Pros take on banks of five steel targets in lightning fast rounds, as new guns enter the sport. Pistol Caliber Carbines now race on the eight famous courses of fire at the Hogue Action Pistol Ranges in Morro Bay.

Then, the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association hosts Youngsters for a special weekend at Friendship to get them started with their first shots in the shooting sports.

Plus, we get our first shots with the big bore M&P 2.0 in .45 ACP. And Ken Hackathorn is teaching home defense with your AR Rifle.

Then, at 9:30 p.m. EST on Wednesday, it’s small varmints shot at long ranges in the Lone Star State. It’s precision shooting with benchrest rifles in the latest version of two traditional sports becoming a new challenge: silhouette and benchrest. And John also tries the challenge of knocking down 1-MOA Coyotes with his Precision Rifle.

Then, families compete together with .22-caliber pistols and rifles. It’s the Rimfire Challenge World Championship, with hundreds of competitors ringing steel on the ranges in Alabama, including a six-year-old hot shot!
