Competitive Shooting

Rob Leatham Shoots Smoke & Hope at Steel Challenge

This is one of the fastest stages at the match, with large 18×24-inch plates that are fairly close. However, it’s a mistake to not respect this stage, because the times are so fast, one mistake can really hurt. Rob Leatham knows all about the pitfalls of Smoke & Hope from his career at Steel Challenge, and in the video below he runs the new Springfield Armory XD(M) 5.25 Competition like a boss on this stage.

The new Springfield Armory XD(M) 5.25 looks like it’s going to be a force to be reckoned with in the competition shooting world, and I’m looking forward to seeing it in action at even more matches.
