Nashville, TN -( Race Guns, Carry Guns with red dots, and Pistol Caliber Carbines. They’re all now divisions competing at the USPSA’s first Optics Nationals in Florida. Nearly 350 shooters take on 20 courses of fire in just two days! It’s a match like none other, as Pistol Caliber Carbines, or PCCs become the new trend. John Scoutten and Tony Pignato report the action and provide some of their own in the USPSA’s newest competition.

Plus, Royal Range is the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s first five-star range in the country, built from an abandoned movie theater. We’ll show you a look inside, and how a SWAT Team uses the facilities to train.

And, Blackhawk! Pro Shooter Todd Jarrett shows us home defense with a rifle.  Tune in to Outdoor Channel this week
