Wheel of Fire

Premier Date: 10/18/2011


The five remaining marksmen face one of the most difficult challenges in Top Shot history. Shooters will use the powerful and compact SP89 semi automatic pistol while moving through the air upside down. With the last spot in the final four up for grabs, one competitor amazes the group with a stunning performance at the elimination challenge.


The Individual Challenge involves one shooter at a time firing at a 35-foot-diameter ring of 20 targets from 35 feet, while strapped to the end of a vertically rotating 16-foot arm. Each shooter is given one full revolution of the arm to get up to speed, then must fire during a second revolution using one 28-round magazine. The two highest numbers of hits are safe from elimination; ties are broken by fewer rounds fired.


The nomination picks for the Elimination challenge are Mike & Alex


The Elimination event involves firing at 20 ground targets placed among obstacles and debris while riding a zip-line backwards at 15 miles per hour. Higher number of hits wins.




Heckler & Koch SP89 pistol (based on the MP5K submachine gun)

TOP SHOT Season 3 Finale

Premier Date: 10/25/2011


The Final Four marksmen set their sights on the $100,000 prize and the title of Top Shot. In a series of intense challenges, one shooter attempts an unprecedented shot with the AK-47, and contestants are eliminated one by one until there are only two left standing. The final challenge pushes two marksmen to their limits and a new champion is crowned.


The Elimination Challenge involves shooting a Glock 34 from 35 feet...two shooters at a time fire at 4 sets of 3 double-sided, moving targets. They have 45 seconds to flip as many as possible to their assigned color. The two first-round winners advance, with the losers competing against each other; the loser of this second round is eliminated.


The next Elimination challenge involves using handguns and rifles from past challenges...

Smith & Wesson Model 686 revolver, Infinity Sight Tracker race gun, Heckler & Koch SP89 pistol

Volquartsen .22 semiautomatic, AK-47, Winchester Model 1873

Two rounds are played, with each player choosing a weapon, target, stance, and distance in both; all three players try every shot. No weapon or target may be chosen more than once. After all six weapons have been used, the player with the fewest hits is eliminated. Targets available include golf balls, jugs, glasses, tin cans, and bottles.


The Final challenge involves running a course with 7 shooting stations...crawling through a 25-foot sand pit under barbed wire to reach the first one.

1. Use two Remingtons 1875's to hit 6 targets at 35 feet.
2. From 15 feet, throw rocks at a square grid of 9 glass panes until 3 in a row are broken.
3. Hit 10 jars at 40 yards with the Benelli shotgun.
4. Using the recurve bow, bounce an arrow off a metal ramp to hit a target 50 feet away.
5. Climb a pole to an 8-foot-high shooting platform, then shoot targets at 100/200 yards from the prone position with the LaRue.
6.Cross a rope to another platform and use the Vltor to hit targets at 75/100 yards while standing.
7. Shoot targets at 30/50/70 feet with the S&W 500.

First to complete the course wins.

Well, I thought tonight's grand finale was an awesome contest between the finest competitors of the 3rd season...Chris, Gary, Mike, and Dustin.

Each of the final four deserved to be there...played a very good game right up until tonight's elimination...and were all Top Shots when it came to being men of true caliber !!

But in the end...only one could be left standing...and that man was a true gentleman...Dustin !

Congrats to him and his family !!

I'm already looking forward to Season #4...
