TOP SHOT – The Gauntlet

The new, 3rd Season of Top Shot begins Tuesday, August 9th on the History Channel at 10 PM (9 Central). You can check out the cast videos HERE and follow Top Shot on FACEBOOK too.

Some shooters I know have complained about the drama that has become part of this series but guess what, the television audience likes drama. Here’s the deal: I’ll guarantee you that some folks that have never shot a firearm before were influenced to do so after watching TOP SHOT. That’s a good thing.

I’ll also bet you that some of those folks have become gun owners. That’s a good thing too.

Don’t let the drama drag you down. You’ll get to see folks of good character and bad and some of them are veterans. Tune in and enjoy the great slow motion video, enjoy the shooting challenges and – if you think you are good enough – submit your application to be a part of next season.

In the interest of full disclosure, Empty Cases was contacted by the History Channel with a request to announce the new season of TOP SHOT.
