She's an all-American girl who restores cars and collects first edition books. He's a 23 year old Sergeant on the US Army Marksmanship Unit. It's like we couldn't have picked more outstanding to people to represent the country and the sport.

another thing that makes me proud to be an american
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.

all 25 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple

I just found time to watch the men's final on replay and I find the differences in technique interesting. Hacock's stock is more than interesting, but I like the way the Dane holds his barrels together with white adhesive tape. That is frugality.

Watched an interview of Vince Hancock on NBCSports... seems to be a polite, considerate, fair-minded, very family-oriented guy. A perfect example of the finest the USA has to offer. It's a wonderful thing, it is.
