This week Shooting USA features the NRA’s World Shooting Championship (WSC), held at the Peacemaker National Training Center in West Virginia. This unique, multi-discipline Pro-Am Competition draws 300 shooters, with all firearms provided by manufacturers. This competition is designed find the “best at everything that goes bang”. The NRA World Shooting Championship adds the scores from many different shooting disciplines to find the best all-around shooting champion. To succeed at the WSC, competitors must be skilled with all types of firearms, bolt-action rifles, semi-auto rifles, shotguns, semi-auto pistols, and even single action six-guns. The stage guns are all provided by match sponsors, so the competitors enter the match empty-handed, and without experience with the firearms of each stage challenge.

The challenges range from sporting clays, to PRS-style rifle stages, to Bianchi plate racks shot with handguns, and even a simulated Olympic Biathlon competition. That requires that competitors be fit and have a diverse skill set — you need to be outstanding with every type of firearm.

Shooting USA TV airs Wednesday, 12/19/18 at 9:00 PM Eastern and Pacific; 8:00 PM Central

Maggie notes: “We spend a lot of time in competition working a draw from a holster position, but sometimes when you go to competition you will have to do an unloaded or loaded table start. So I want to take you through some techniques on how to maximize that first shot and get an efficient time.”
