NSCA and shotgunning are getting high-profile attention in the new series Shooting Stars, airing on Discovery’s Velocity channel.
The fast-paced competition event series features three of the world’s best-known exhibition shooters paired with celebrity team members as they face captivating target shooting challenges. Each of the six, one-hour episodes celebrates a salute to service as the winning teams raise money for their charities supporting military, police, fire, and cancer charities.
