USA – ( – Only factory-built guns can compete at the USPSA Production Nationals, and the major manufacturers send their top team members to shoot those handguns right out of the box. It’s the old NASCAR rule, “Win on Sunday, Sell Guns on Monday.” So, this championship is the most important competition of the year for those Professional Shooters. They go head-to-head in this run-and-gun match, with new challenging targets, at PASA Park in Illinois.

Plus, Colt celebrates 40 years at Gunsite Academy. We head to the world famous training facility founded by Colonel Jeff Cooper in Arizona to see how the Modern Technique is being preserved and taught to future generations. John also takes us on a tour of the late Colonel’s personal gunroom.

And, the Savage auto-loading pistol that nearly beat the 1911 in military trials. The Savage model of 1907 is now one of History’s Guns.  Tune in Wednesday to Outdoor Channel!
