The third and final day of the 2012 NRA Show saw Team IDPA meeting with some of the biggest gun makers in the firearms world, including Taurus, whose new CEO, Mark Kresser, talked to Joyce Wilson about shooting a little IDPA himself in the coming months. Joyce Rubino from Colt talked shop, and shooting. And of course, no NRA tour of gun makers would be complete without a visit to Smith & Wesson, which in case you didn't know hosts a little IDPA match and get together each year...just a small event you may have heard people talking about.
