Episode 104 - Celebrating Two Years
The guys are back once again, this time to celebrate Two Years of the PowerFactor Show. That is 104 weekly episodes. We never knew we'd do so many or last two years but thanks to all our viewers and their feedback, it has kept us going. In fact, if we continue to get support, we will be recording at least another 52 episodes, so keep the emails, comments and donations coming.

Our sincere thanks to all our loyal viewers and to the sponsors Rainier Ballistics, Hodgdon Powders, Safariland and JPL Precision.

Here's to another good year!! Happy Holidays to everyone!

Changed my grip style slightly last time at the range due to one of the episodes and really tightened up my groups on double taps and got better with transitions. Thanks a bunch!

Episode 114 - Scholastic Steel Challenge
SSC provides the opportunity for young adults aged 12 to 20 to participate in the exciting and challenging family sport of “speed steel," and do so in a supportive environment taught by trained and supportive adult coaches focusing on the safe handling and use of handguns.

SSC's competitive format is based on the Steel Challenge, the nation's most successful handgun competition. We have adapted the format to provide a safe yet action packed competition, one that both neophyte and experienced shooters will enjoy.

Rick and Larry head to the first sanctioned Steel Challenge match held at the Renton Fish and Game Club recently to give it a go.
