The History Channel’s surprise hit “Top Shot” begins it’s second season today. Gun Enthusiasts discovered this sharp shooting series last season that pitted ordinary shooters against one and other with different weapons, in different scenarios, competing to win the title of “Top Shot”. What made the show interesting was all of the different types of guns they got to use each week to test their ability. From muzzle loaders, to early lever action rifles, early revolvers and state of the art semi automatics and full automatics, they shot in different scenarios at different distances, losing at least one competitor each week.
This season looks to be even better with even more challenging competitions and some great firearms that are sure to please the Gun Enthusiast. From what I saw, some of the guns will include a 1911, the first military sniper rifle – the Sharps Falling Breech load rifle, a Thompson sub machine gun, ARs and many more. Sixteen competitors from different walks of life will compete until one is left.
Top Shot is on the History Channel Tuesday nights at 10 PM Eastern, 7 PM Pacific. I am looking forward to it. Let me know what you think.
