Does anyone know where these events can be watched on the world wide web? I haven't seen anything on NBC and would love to see an entire competition played out.

British authorities banned children and teens from observing shooting events, because it may give them "ideas". Media coverage has been low or not considered for many years. Winter Biathlon is really the last bit of coverage you will see on TV until the progressive attitude dies off.

Are you serious about banning a certain segment of the population from watching these events? This sounds so ****ing over the top!

Modern events like 3-gun should be Olympic sports.

I was able to watch several of the shooting matches on the NBC cable channels. But yeah, they were all pretty boring to watch so I really didn't pay much attention.

It'll just be team USA vs team USA.

How many other countries will allow civilians to own a handgun, shotgun and rifle at all the same time?

Agreed. 3gun might be more interesting to watch than some events, but even a lot of other countries that allow gun ownership still have restrictions on use that would result in only the US competing in such an event.

Although there is airsoft IDPA that happens in some countries in Asia(look it up on youtube. It's kinda silly looking, but they do take it seriously).

If you're in the USA, you can watch all the shooting events on the NBC LiveExtra site, the catch being you can only do so if you're a subscriber to one of their supported services (DirecTV, Dish, Comcast, etc).

I watched most of them, but shooting doesn't typically translate well to TV. The air rifle and smallbore only get interesting when they impose the targets on the screen.
