“Mother of All Shooting Matches” — New World Championships

Who is the Best of the Best? That question will be answered this coming September at the first-ever Trijicon/NRA World Shooting Championship at the Peacemaker National Training Center in Glengary, WV. The overall objective of this match is to assemble the top 400 shooters from around the world — including existing and previous champion shooters from virtually every organized shooting sport. One of these 400 marksmen will be crowned as the undisputed “World Shooting Champion”, a distinction never before bestowed upon any shooter. That lucky (and talented) shooter will win $50,000.

This match, perhaps the largest event of its kind ever held, will test competitors’ abilities with a wide variety of firearms and shooting disciplines. The match combines pistol shooting (action and bullseye), rifle shooting (action, smallbore, high-power, and F-Class), and Shotgun (Sporting Clays/trap/tactical). All guns and ammo are provided! The winner gets $50,000 and there is a $150,000 Prize Table. This new match carries “multi-gun” competition to a whole new level, with big money at stake:

All shooters will compete over four days (September 10-13, 2014) in twelve, equally-weighted disciplines from various shooting sports. All firearms and ammunition will be provided for each event. This levels the playing field and obviates the need for competitors to purchase more equipment.

LaserLyte Plinking Cans Jump When Hit By Laser Beams

laserlyte plinking cans

Snow on the ground? Can’t go shooting outside? Here’s one way to have fun indoors while practicing your aiming skills. LaserLyte offers a set of three cans equipped with laser-activated “kickers” on the base. When a laser hits the can in the right spot the can topples over. The laser activates a solenoid that releases a spring-loaded plunger. To reset the cans, simply stand them up and depress the plunger.

Watch Laserlyte Plinker Training Cans:

The LaserLyte® Laser Plinking Can Set is sold in a three-pack with three 9V batteries included. One battery will tip the can over about 8,000 times. Watch the video to see how it works. This would be fun with kids (just follow safe practices with the laser beams).

To direct a laser at the plinking cans, you’ll need a firearm fitted with an in-barrel laser (instead of live ammo). Or, alternatively, you can use the blue plastic LaserLyte training pistol ($54.95). For actual handguns, you can use the universal LT-Pro laser module, or a caliber-specific unit that fits the chamber of your gun. The blue training pistol is designed to work with the LT-Pro universal module, as you can see in the video below, a field test by Gunsandammo.com. The testers noted that the cans may be sensitive to very bright light sources.
