Guns & Ammo TV
Award-winning Guns & Ammo TV, voted by viewers as the Best Shoot Show for four consecutive years, enters 2014 by unveiling two new segments and bringing back the best of our Torture Tests. At the same time, we launch the 11th consecutive year of At The Range segments, which viewers have always tuned in to check out our exclusive firearms, ammo and optics range reports.
â€śBack To Schoolâ€ťÂ is one of our two new segments, and we travelled to The SIG Academy in Exeter, NH, one of the best shooting venues in the country, to film 13 training segments with SIGâ€™s top-flight instructors.
â€śAmmo Labâ€ťÂ is the other new addition to the G&A family, and we present a different twist on how the bullet and ammunition manufacturers conduct their research and development before they introduce bullets and factory loads. No costs or manpower or time is spared.
Torture TestsÂ is brought back for an encore, by demand, from our loyal viewers who canâ€™t seem to get enough from our various torture testing teams, and theyâ€™ll bring a smile to your face as they do their best to â€śdestroyâ€ť rifles, handguns, shotguns, and optics.
