This week on Gun Talk Television, hosts Tom Gresham and Ryan Gresham examine the past and present of the Modern Sporting Rifle, or MSR for short.

Springfield Armory’s Rob Leatham and Louisiana Shooting Associations’ Dan Zelenka explore the history of the Springfield Armory M1A, while Ruger’s Mark Gurney discusses how the  Mini-14 came about. Then it’s over to Clark’s Custom Guns with Jim Clark and his custom rifles designed for 3Gun competitions, and KelTec’s Rifle, Forward-ejecting Bullpup (or RFB) and lightweight SU16 rifle with a folding stock and bi-pod. Finally, Tom takes to the range with one of his favorite MSRs – the Ruger 10/22, and explains the importance of using the right ammunition from companies like Nosler and Black Hills Ammunition that are offering different loads and different bullets for any Modern Sporting Rifle need.
