EPISODE #6


Turn the Corner


Premier Date: 09/13/2011

==================================================================

Contestants are shocked to see two Top Shot champions return as honorary captains for the team challenge. First Season Winner Ian Harrison guest captains the BLUE Team and Second Season Winner Chris Reed guest captains the RED Team, with each team sponsoring a designated charity who will stand to win $5000. BLUE Team's charity is the Wounded Warrior Project, and RED Team's charity is the Make A Wish Foundation. The Marksmen will compete with a just-released, ultra modern assault rifle and an Israeli made special forces gadget. Tensions flare when an argument erupts between two competitors on the same team.

==================================================================

The first Team Challenge involves using a newly released AR platform from VLTOR...the TS3. The competitors must run and shoot under stress between 5 platforms 16 feet apart, connected by ropes of various design...shooting at two targets set at 75 and 100 yards in front of each platform. The team that hits all their targets and transitions the fastest between the platforms ( fastest time total ) wins the challenge. RED Team goes first and burns up the course, finishing in 2 minutes and 27 seconds. The BLUE Team has a slow start when Billy takes 14 shots to hit the first two targets...then they pick up the pace a little and finish with a time of 3 minutes and 12 seconds. RED Team wins the challenge and the Make a Wish Foundation wins the $5000 prize donation.


WINNER: RED Team


=================================================================


The nomination picks for the Elimination challenge for the BLUE Team are: Jake & Paul

( And Jake is pissed !! )


=================================================================


The BLUE Team members now move on to the Elimination event which involves using the Israeli made "Corner Shot"... which uses a platform designed to hold a Glock 18 in a frame that pivots around corners and uses a heads up video display to let the user stay hidden behind cover while negotiating the shot. The two contestants go one at a time as they run to 3 separate stations and engage 3 targets ( jars ) set at 35 feet around barriers...first left...then right...then through a opening above...the first contestant to hit all 9 targets the fastest wins the challenge. Paul goes first...runs to the first stage and hits the first target with the first shot, then hits the second target with the third shot and then the third target with the fifth shot. Then he scrambles to the second area...hitting his three targets in six shots...then runs to the third area and hits three for three...finishing with a time of 2:34.

Now it's Jakes turn...he scrambles up to the first stage and hits all 3 jars with just 3 shots...goes to the second stge and does the same...3 for 3...and then repeats it again 3 for 3...using unbelievable skill to win the challenge in only 48 seconds.


WINNER: Jake ( who takes out his frustrations on being nominated on his BLUE Teamates )

So, what did everyone think of this weeks show ?!

They did say they got the very first VLTOR TS3's to use for the 1st team challenge...a flat top M4 platform setup with BUIS's.

And the Israeli made Corner Shot platform, holding a Glock 18 was an interesting design that I had first seen last year on the Military Channel.

Anybody watch last night...!?

Anybody even care ?!

I watch the series to see the weapons and the competition...not the hype. Hell, I guess you could just go to the History Channel and look up the results...

If I'm wasting my time posting this event every week, just let me know...!!

I got plenty of time...but none to waste ! 8-)

EPISODE #7


Tricked Out


Premier Date: 09/20/2011

==================================================================

A world famous pistol champion ( Jerry Miculek ) teaches teams some extremely difficult trick shots including shooting while blindfolded. The Blue Team is in disarray after team member Jake vows to go it alone. The elimination challenge features the classic cowboy skill of shooting from the hip.

* Before the practice sessions for the team challenge, Billy of the BLUE Team withdrew from the competition due to complications in his wife's pregnancy. Since this decision left the Red Team with one extra member, they were allowed to decide for themselves which player would be benched.


==================================================================

The first Team Challenge involves using a Smith & Wesson Model 686 in .38 caliber and a Volquartsen semi-automatic rifle in .22 caliber to pull off some trick shots at four stations. The first station the teams go head to head shooting the M686 holding the revolver upside down, and firing at 3 beer bottles from 30 feet. RED Team goes first with Gary going three for three, busting all the bottles. Then it's BLUE Teams turn, with Jake missing his first shot...thereby not having enough to win. RED team gets the point. Then it's BLUE Teams Dustin against RED Teams Bill firing the Volquartsen rifle at 3 cotton swabs from 25 feet...Dustin hitting 2 of the three swabs. Bill goes next and only hits 1 of the three...BLUE Team winning the point. Then it's RED Teams Mike versus Alex of the BLUE Team firing the rifle at 3 compact discs from 35 feet, trying to shoot through the center hole without breaking the plastic. Mike misses all three shots...while Alex hits 1 of three to win a point for the BLUE Team. The final station involves Mike of the BLUE and Cliff of the RED shooting the M686 revolver while blindfolded, firing 3 pairs of shots at 2 gallon jugs from 25 feet. Mike misses the first 2 shots, then Cliff misses the next two shots, then Mike goes again and misses two for two and then Cliff misses two for two until it's down to the last set of trys both teams. Mike steps up and squeezes off his two last shots...and hits both of the jugs dead on. Now, since the BLUE Team has 3 points to RED Teams 1 point...Cliff can't possibly win and does not get to shoot.


WINNER: RED Team


=================================================================


The nomination picks for the Elimination challenge for the RED Team are: Mike & Cliff


=================================================================


The RED Team members now move on to the Elimination event which involves using a Schofield Break Top Single Action Revolver...the 5" barreled Pinkerton Model...with one shooter at a time firing at 10 targets from 25 feet, shooting from the hip so that the bullets pass under a hitching rail. Shooters use two revolvers, each loaded with 5 rounds. Higher number of targets hit wins the challenge. Mike goes first and hits two out of ten plates. Cliff gets right to work and hits two for two with the first revolver then misses a few, then finishes strong with three more hits to win the challenge.


WINNER: Cliff ( 5 hits to Mike's 2 of 10 )

OK then...what's the consenses on this weeks show...

My thoughts...It's a shame that Billy of the BLUE Team had to leave, but...family comes first.

The fact the Jerry Miculek was training on the show was pretty cool...I've actually met and shook hands with him at the Smith & Wesson Shooting Sports Center in Springfield, Massachusetts back in 2005 while on travel for work. Real gentleman ...he just popped in while I was waiting in line at their store and I just said "Hey, Jerry !!"...and he walked right up and said good to meet you like a regular guy.

I really liked the firearms this time around...the S&W M686 L Frame .357 Magnum is a gun my brother owns and I have shot on ocassion. The S&W Model 3 Schofield Break Top revolver is something I've wanted ever since I saw the remake of 3:10 to Yuma...and that Volquartsen rimfire looked like a hell of an accurate rifle...I wouldn't mind owning one.
