EPISODE #8


RAMP IT UP


Premier Date: 09/27/2011

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

Contestants must master the Recurve Bow and nail a target by skipping an arrow off a ramp. One team goes to the brink of self-destructing when two teammates almost come to blows during a dispute of a previous elimination decision. There are only eight members left...four to a team.


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

The first Team Challenge involves the contestants firing at separate sets of 6 targets mounted on rotating wheels 50 feet away, trying to bounce arrows off a metal ramp to hit them. One player at a time per team; a player's turn ends after he has either fired 3 arrows or shot a target that has not yet been hit. First team to hit all of its targets wins. RED] Team's Phil is the first to hit a target and get a point on the board. Then Jake scores the first point for the BLUE Team. After that, the teams rotate back and forth scoring points until it's down to the wire...with Mike of the BLUE Team scoring the winning point.


WINNER: BLUE Team


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


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


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


The RED Team members now move on to the Elimination event which involves using the recurve bow again, this time from 20 yards, both players fire at 4 18" two-color targets moving back and forth at different heights. Player with more hits on his assigned color (including accidental hits by his opponent) after 3 minutes and 30 seconds wins. Chris is assigned the yellow and Cliff is assigned the orange targets. Chris is the first to hit a yellow target...and Chris jumps to an early lead, even tho a few of his arrows hit Cliff's orange targets, giving Cliff the point.
But, after going back and forth, both men doing well with the moving targets, it's Chris that jumps ahead to win.


WINNER: Chris ( Chris 15 -- Cliff 10 )

EPISODE #9


Stacked


Premier Date: 10/04/2011

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

The individual stage of the competition kicks off with the highly accurate McMillan TAC-50 Sniper Rifle. Taking aim at targets 500 yards downrange, one marksman has a meltdown and struggles to complete the individual challenge. In the elimination, it's all on the line for two competitors as they duke it out with a notorious WWII handgun...the Walther P-38.

The teams were dissolved at the start of this episode. All players received green shirts and began to compete directly against each other for the rest of the season. After the individual challenge, all players voted for one of the lowest performers. The top two vote-getters then competed in an elimination challenge as in earlier episodes.


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

The first Challenge involves shooting at a moving 30-inch target from 500 yards. The four fastest times to hit it are safe from elimination. Dustin, Jake, Phil, Alex get the fastest times and are saved from elimination.


LOSERS: Gary & Mike


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


The nomination picks for the Elimination challenge are Gary & Mike


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


The Elimination event involves firing at separate sets of 36 targets from 35 feet, trying to break the connectors and drop the 8 planks attached to them. Players must work from the bottom up and are each given 30 rounds pre-loaded into magazines. First player to hit all targets and drop the planks wins. Gary wins...


LOSER: Mike

I personally think that the show will be getting a little better, now that the herd has been culled.

As far as the weapons...I already own a P-38... a Walther / Spreewerk model with a 3 digit serial number from WWII. And she still shoots like she was made yesterday...

The McMillian ?...well, I dream of one day owning enough land with a mountain as a backstop, so that I can finally own a 50 cal. McMillian or Barrett would be in the top five choices... ;)

EPISODE #10


Odd Man Out


Premier Date: 10/11/2011

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

Competition speeds up when marksmen fire one of the fastest shooting handguns on the market. The vote at the nomination range provokes a drastic reaction from one of the shooters and a shocking turn of events leaves competitors stunned.


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

The first Challenge involves one shooter at a time firing at targets that randomly appear behind 12 4-inch holes in an 8-foot-diameter board wheel target at 35 feet. Each shooter gets 10 sets of random targets, 10 seconds per set. The three highest numbers of hits are safe from elimination; ties are broken by fewer rounds fired.


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

Jake resigned from the competition after being nominated. As the last individual shooter eliminated before him, Mike returned to compete alongside Phil in the elimination challenge

The nomination picks for the Elimination challenge are Phil & Mike


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


The Elimination event involves the shooters using a kneeling position and a bipod, shooters fire at separate sets of 20 suspended light bulb targets set 75-100 yards away in a zigzag pattern. Each is given 2 pre-loaded 10-round magazines and must work from closest to farthest away. First to hit all of his own targets wins.


LOSER: Phil

OK...the biggest new I guess is that ex-Navy Seal Jake walked out after being nominated once again for elimination...which brought back Mike, who eventually won and is back in the race.

Phil has now been eliminated...and all things considered was probably the weakest shooter out of those left anyway...always managing to squeak out a win.

The weapons used tonight were great...the SVI Infinity Sight Tracker in .40 caliber and the Sako TRG rifle in .338 Lapua.

What's everyone thoughts on tonights episode... !?
