Congratulations to 14-year-old Ty C. of Missouri for competing in his first ever long-range shooting competition. We love hearing about youth getting involved in shooting sports. We’re happy to be a part of the journey as the gun that Ty is using features a Criterion Barrels, Inc. barrel, a Bighorn Arms action, and a Triggertech trigger, all of which were purchased from Northland Shooters Supply. Best of luck at your future shoots Ty!

NSS: We understand that you have a new shooter training that you are hosting. Tell us a little about that. How can a shooter participate?
The Team: We will be hosting a free training day later in the summer with no date set yet but probably September. The event will be for new shooters to the sport or folks that have only shot a handful of matches. We hosted a free training day late last winter and it was a huge hit so we will have another one this fall to try to and help more folks. The sign-up for the event will be on the Missouri Steel Tactical Series (MOST) Facebook page when the date is set. The training day will be 100% free to participants and even lunch will be provided free of charge. All a participant will need is a rifle, some ammo, and the desire to learn.

NSS: How can a person get involved in the MOST Series/PRS shooting?
The Team: The best advice for anyone that wants to get involved would be to find a match to attend and show up. There are some really generous folks shooting these series and they will loan you anything you need to get some matches under your belt. Bring a scoped rifle, ammo, and a positive attitude. You will have the time of your life! There are several women and youngsters that shoot in the Missouri series, so no matter who you are or where you come from, just come on out and have a great time.
