It was nearly a year ago when the publishers of Gun Digest announced the creation of a whole new brand designed to serve today’s shooting enthusiast. At the heart of this new media effort is Modern Shooter television, a program designed to share the how-to skills and behind-the-scenes views of the firearms world like nothing seen anywhere else.
The quarterly Modern Shooter magazine, now in its fourth issue, serves as a print mirror of the TV show with deeper details and insight behind the great action captured by the program’s cameras.
Since that first announcement of the new television show, the Modern Shooter crew has been busy traveling the country meeting with and filming some of the top shooting experts and firearms manufacturers across the nation. Now, finally, with the start of 2015, Modern Shooter leads the way on Sportsman Channel’s Monday night primetime shooting block of television, airing at 8 p.m. (EST) January through June.
Modern Shooter television will be unlike any other shooting program on television as it seeks to gather some of the most knowledgeable personalities in the firearms world, such as famed instructor and gun writer Massad Ayoob, to teach you each week how to be become a better, more informed shooter.
Modern Shooter has also attracted some of the biggest manufacturers in the firearms industry including Colt, Glock, Ruger and Silencer Shop. Recent filming stops have included a week spent on the range with members of the Glock shooting team, and visits to Colt and Ruger, which provided unprecedented access to their facilities. As this goes to press, the crew is on a one-of-a-kind Texas adventure with the team from Silencer Shop, who displayed how suppressors enhance the total hunting experience.
We are thrilled for the premier of Modern Shooter and now that the line is hot, we are confident shooters everywhere will want to make the program must-see viewing each week.
New episodes of Modern Shooter TV airs on Sportsman Channel 8 p.m. ET Monday; replays of the week’s episodes are then broadcast 9 a.m. ET Thursday and 12 a.m. Sunday.
