2015 NRA Intercollegiate Pistol Championships

Fort Benning, Georgia - The Ohio State University successfully defended their NRA Intercollegiate Pistol title this past week, fending off a last minute rally by The Citadel during the championships' last match - Open Air Pistol. The Buckeyes only took one of the three matches that comprise the championship, but thanks to a combined team effort they put together a 6331 for the highest overall score. That's all that really matters in the end, right?

The Citadel, who entered the final day in third and 33 points down to the United States Naval Academy, took their last opportunity to put points on the board and shot an excellent Open Air Pistol to edge Navy by eight points and secure a second place finish with 6240 to Navy's 6232.

Mountaineers take team title; Madeleine Godwin grabs individual championship at Fort Benning

2015 NRA Intercollegiate Rifle Club Championships

Fort Benning, Georgia - West Virginia University's club rifle team secured the school's second national championship in a week thanks to outstanding shooting at this past weekend's NRA Intercollegiate Rifle Club Championships at Fort Benning, Georgia. The first of the two shooting sports titles came one week ago when the Mountaineers' varsity rifle team took the 2015 NCAA Rifle Championships in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Finishing the competition with a final score of 4363 out of a possible 4800, West Virginia's impressive shooting usurped defending champions University of Michigan, who had won the past two titles. The Wolverines, who found themselves in a 36-point hole to West Virginia after the first day's Smallbore Championship, mounted a spirited comeback during the final day's Air Rifle Championship to win the match, but fell just short of the overall title by 15 points and finished third with 4348.

G42 offers the benefits of the Glock platform in a truly pocket-size pistol

American consumers can finally benefit from an ultracompact deep-concealment pistol designed by the legendary Austrian company: the G42 Shooting Illustrated asked Duane A. Daiker to take a look at the latest from GLOCK: the G42 ...

Glock G42
Few handguns have been as highly anticipated as the single-stack Glock chambered in .380 ACP. This year, American consumers can finally benefit from an ultracompact deep-concealment pistol designed by the legendary Austrian company: the G42.

Undoubtedly, Glock was late to the party with a micro-size .380 ACP handgun. By the time Ruger introduced its LCP in 2008, the race to produce miniature .380 ACP pistols was well underway. Similar offerings appeared from most of the major manufacturers, and the “9 mm Kurz” was the hot pistol caliber for several years. Although Glock had models in most every popular semi-automatic chambering, a .380 ACP was noticeably absent from its lineup—at least in the United States. Glock actually has a double-stack .380 ACP available in overseas markets: the G25. U.S. law, however, prohibits domestic sale of the G25 due to import restrictions.
