Today is a great day for Gun Nuts and our fans. In addition to the premiere of Top Shot, the new sponsors for the HAVA auction, I’m incredibly pleased to bring you the following news item regarding the continuing series “The Quest for Master Class”. The goal of the series is to demonstrate to shooters that you can take actual concealed carry firearms and use them in IDPA (and other) competitions and not only gain valuable skills, but also be successful at the competitions themselves.
That’s why today I’m pleased to announce that the next phase of The Quest for Master Class, chosen by readers of Gun Nuts to be in Stock Service Pistol and Enhanced Service Pistol will be appearing exclusively on Downrange.TV and sponsored by Ruger Firearms. Ruger will be providing the SR9c for the test – a compact, concealed carry firearm that we’ll be using to reach for Master class in Stock Service and Enhanced Service Pistol divisions.
I’m excited to work with the team at Downrage.TV and Ruger to get The Quest for Master Class moving forward. The Quest officially starts on July 1st, and the SSP/ESP chapter should wrap up in October(ish). Each week on DRTV we’ll have updates, shooting skill tests, and evaluations of the continued performance of a compact, concealed carry firearm being used heavily in all types of simulated defensive shooting situations. The SR9c will be shot in IDPA, but will also see trigger time in Steel Challenge, USPSA, and any other shooting sport I can get trigger time in; with the goal being to achieve Master Class in 2 divisions in no longer than 4 months.
Hats are off to DRTV and Ruger for getting on board with this project, and check back here as we get closer to July for the official launch!
