    Yes, but Team Alaska is leading on the pistol shoot.:) ,
    The Canadians are tough on their security and won't show their faces on TV for security reasons.

    Team Alaska won, followed by the Air National Guard, I suprised to see that the Air National Guard beat the Canadians and also the USMC. Just goes to show you , practice makes perfect!!!
    I really liked the Ft.Benning facilities, very nice indeed.

    was kinda funny how at the beggining they were describing all the different positions and scenarios saying these are tough because no one practices such and such . . .i was saying WHAT DO they practice lol !

    I was thinking the same thing also, and I felt bad for the British , since customs laws did not let them bring over their own ammo. That sucks. They're allies and military for God's sake, what if there was a land war and they were fighting along side us.
    "Sorry mayte, You can't use her majesties ammo, Gotta use Federal"
    If they had the same regs for Arab visas, then we wouldn't have all the crap we have now. Sometimes beauracrats get my goat!!:)

    yah looks like the brits needs to put in the range time across the pond ;) that does suck though that they did so bad because of unfamiliar ammo

    They could have done a better job on explaining the types of firearms the Brits were using and why the ammo didn't work well, it would have been also alot better for viewers to have the U.S firearms explained in better detail like they do on the History Channel, but this was more action than history, but still, the firearms types and mechanics should have taken up another 5 minutes at least, but it was fun.
    I also noticed their pistol use was to a minimal, since its a sniper competition, I understand why, but still, I think they only devoted , like two minutes to it.

    My sincere appologies, but I forgot to stick a tape in. Maybe somebody else taped it, I am sure it will be on again. Request that your cable or satellite provider carry it. Its a great channel.
