First show to air Jan. 2, 2011 …
Former MLB baseball player and current television personality of the wildly-popular Buck Commander series, Matt Duff, teams up with world-class shooter and all-American girl, Jessie Abbate, for a series unlike any other on the air waves.
Traveling coast to coast, Matt and Jessie unveil one of NRA’s best kept secrets— the multi-million dollar, grassroots fundraising movement making up the heart of the shooting world— Friends of NRA.
Every year, thousands of individuals and local businesses take charge of the nation’s shooting future by raising money through the ever-expansive Friends of NRA program, providing millions in grants for youth shooting teams, building shooting ranges, or implementing educational and training firearm programs in their hometowns.
But Matt and Jessie won’t just be attending banquets; they’ll cover every aspect of the shooting world inside and outside of Friends of NRA. Whether they’re spending time at the Whittington Center with the best and brightest youth of today, showcasing the world’s best at the Bianchi Cup, going behind the scenes on an exclusive Black Bear Hunt in Alaska, or introducing America to our unsung heroes during a Wounded Warrior Elk Hunt— Matt & Jessie will go everywhere and explore everything to uncover the unseen facets of the shooting sphere.
Nowhere else but The Outdoor Channel will audiences be able to watch one series covering so many sides of the shooting industry. America will tune in to the most tuned-in show on shooting and finally get a taste of what really keeps our firearm industries and traditions thriving.
