From the guys at Armed Self Defense Institute (ASDI) in Utah:
The best is the “re-assembly” of the pumpkin (40 sec) after it was destroyed by .223 and birdshot. LOL
The usual interview, swimsuit, and beauty components are still there… but these are the awesome parts:
In the preliminaries each of the 50 contestants chosen will show their expertise in the use of firearms (pistol and rifle). The contestants will be judged on accuracy, use and safety as well as any additional expertise the contestant my possess. (This portion of the competition will be taped and edited for the live telecast)
Each contestant will be asked 3 specific questions that will demonstrate the contestants knowledge of these fundamental American documents.
According to the about page, we can look forward to this pageant July 4th weekend in 2012.

The website is extremely suspect, but the idea behind the pagent is awesome.
Hell yea! Nice mix of weaponry in that vid too… including what looks like a Sterling Mk4.
The Pedersen Device is an attachment developed during World War I for the M1903 Springfield rifle that allowed it to fire a short 0.30 (7.62 mm) caliber intermediate cartridge in semi-automatic mode. This wonder weapon was developed to allow infantry to dramatically increase their rate of fire while on the move, while also allowing the rifle to be used in conventional bolt action mode for long-range fire from the trenches.

It does not include a magazine, so you’d have to procure one before you got to use this beauty. I’m sure anyone that would pay $23,000 for this device probably wouldn’t be shooting with it though.
Pro Tip: You slice the stacked package bacon perpendicular to the slices instead of just peeling the strips off.
Looks like any given digital camouflage pattern.. MARPAT, ACUPAT etc… Pretty operator.
