National Pistol Championships on Shooting USA Tonight

This week’s Shooting USA program features the NRA National Pistol Championships. This segment covers both rimfire and center-fire Bullseye shooting at 25 and 50 yards.

Each year the NRA hosts the Rifle and Pistol Championships at Camp Perry on the shores of Lake Erie. Camp Perry, in Northern Ohio, is the historic home to the National Championships that date back more than 100 years. Most matches have military antecedents, including the pistol championships. The Match is organized by days. Day One is for .22 LR rimfire handguns. Day Two is for center-fire (any caliber from .32 to .45), and Day Three is for .45-caliber handguns. Currently, most competitors use a model 1911 on centerfire day and use that same 1911 on Day Three for the .45 caliber matches. Red dot optics are permitted in most classes.

Golob Goes Waterfowl Hunting
On tonight’s Shooting USA broadcast, you can also watch action pistol champ Julie Golob head out with Mike Irvine on a Missouri waterfowl adventure.

This was Julie’s first duck hunting trip. Despite the cold weather, Julie had fun and returned with some great memories.
