Nashville, TN -( It’s the twentieth year of defensive pistol competition at the Smith & Wesson Ranges in Massachusetts. And, it’s the 20th year anniversary of the founding of International Defensive Pistol Association. In two decades, the sport has grown to be worldwide, but IDPA still equips competitors with the shooting skills and confidence needed to carry a firearm. This year, the IDPAIndoor Nationals challenges competitors in the dark while practicing self-defense in real life scenarios.

Plus, the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit hosts the Ft. Benning 3-Gun! It’s the only multi-gun match on an active U.S. military installation, a one-of-a-kind experience on Krilling Range in Georgia.

And, the Remington 03-A3, the inexpensive version of the 1903 Springfield, is one of History’s Guns.  Tune in to Outdoor Channel this week
