USPSA Production Nationals
Of all the divisions of USPSA competition, two of the most popular are also two of the newest, Production and PCC, that’s pistol caliber carbine, these two are paired together for the final National of the year at the CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park. It is an unusual pairing, rifle, and production pistol side-by-side on the USPSA Nationals’ stages of fire.
One of the key challenges for the National’s staff is how to create courses of fire that are balanced for Production shooters, with Iron Sights and 10 round magazines, and Pistol Caliber Carbine shooters with their optics and virtually unlimited round count. It’s an creative challenge often overlooked, but vitally important to putting on a successful National Championships Match.

Trail Rock Ordnance
Not long ago we took you to the Gallant Pelham Artillery Shoot in Tennessee, and some of the guns on the line were brand new, with some firing their first shots. So, that raises the question where does a new cannon come from?
Trail Rock Ordnance is just outside Knoxville, Tennessee, and Steve Cameron is the owner who can supply anything. The gun carriage, limbers, caissons. They do all the implements, the shooting accouterments that accompany the gun tubes. They make basically all of it and their products are in demand for shooters, reenactors, and displays at memorials and national parks.
