I watched the third episode of TOP SHOT on the History channel last night. Why? Because I find it exciting that firearms have slipped into the modern Hollywood reality show, because I like guns and (mostly) because a friend of mine is a contestant.
Caleb over at GUN NUTS MEDIA is the short, young looking guy on the blue team. He was not able to give me any secrets into how it all turned out but he is doing a superb job of hitting his targets and keeping his mouth shut. (Unlike some of the contestants who are better at shooting off their mouth than the weapons they are required to fire.) I’ve seen Caleb shoot and interact with people. My money’s on him. (Caleb’s blog has links to additional footage not shown on TV.)
While on the topic of TOP SHOT, I ran across this forum where several participants were bashing the show. That’s fine, everyone has their own opinion but keep in mind you’re bashing a prime-time, pop-culture, reality series that is not demonizing guns or hunting. Some of the events look fun and wouldn’t it be great if this show convinced some non-shooters to take up the sport? TOP SHOT may not be technically correct in every last detail but GET OVER IT. It’s just TV.
If you don’t do anything else, suggest it as a fun show for any non-shooters you know.
