This week a Shooting USA profile of the most successful new shooter from the Scholastic Clay Target Program who’s now on the way to the Olympics. He’s Vincent Hancock from Georgia.
Then we’re taking you to the Stoeger plant in Turkey where they’re making high quality shotguns and barrels.
And we’ve got two instructors in our Pro Tips this week - Robbie Johnson and Daniel Horner from the Army Marksmanship Unit are teaching Shotgun Speed Loads.
And there's still more! Jerry Miculek shows up to show us what he can do with two revolvers.
Tonight! Wednesday! Be there!
One of the best shows to date IMHO! Vincent Hancock is simply amazing! His ability to acquire his targets with such rapidity leave me dumbfounded. I've shot skeet and sporting clays, yet have never witnessed shotgunning of that magnitude!
The tour of the Stoeger facility was quite informative as well as entertaining. It never ceases to amaze me how technology has allowed the ability of high-turnout while maintaining high quality products. Of course, there's never going to be a replacement for the artisans who spend hour upon hour crafting a masterpiece firearm either.
The Army Marksmanship team members remind me of how much time I should've spent practicing, instead of "playing".
And what more can be said of Jerry Miculek? He's simply amazing! It makes me wonder how much is God given natural ability, and how much he's learned by long hours of structured practice. With the right equipment, training, support and circumstances, how many of us could achieve his level of marksmanship? Very few I'd venture! Thanks for another great show Jim and Company!
Looks like we didn't bore you with any section of that show.
Thanks for the comments.
I liked the part about shotgun barrels.
We see so few episodes where barrels are made; we always see the receivers made. This was a nice switch.
Any chance we can go down to Cavalry Arms and see them make their AR15 some time?
