Watch as cameras follow these two competitors through the FNH USA 3-Gun Championship, attempting to make a final push and secure their chance at competing for the $50,000 grand prize from Leupold Tactical Optics and NBC Sports Network.

At the FN match, Thacker is on the outside looking in, and he will need a monster finish to get back in the race—at the same match he put it all together to make his title run in 2011. This time around, the defending champion is vying to make the cut to attempt to defend his crown.
