    HISTORY CHANNEL NOW SEEKING THE ULTIMATE MARKSMEN FOR SEASON 3 OF TOP SHOT!

    Season 1 was a hit, and Season 2 is on its way. Now it's your turn to take a
    shot at Season 3! If you are skilled with a pistol, rifle or any other
    firearm, you could win $100,000 in prizes on the third season of History
    Channel's electrifying competition show, TOP SHOT. Producers are looking for
    anyone with unrivaled shooting skills and a big personality to take on
    exciting physical challenges with multiple guns and mystery projectile
    weapons.

    It doesn't matter if you're a professionally trained shooter or a
    self-taught, average Joe (or Jane!). As long as you're in good physical
    shape, have mastered a firearm and can adapt to new weapons and demanding
    physical situations, you could be America's next "Top Shot."

    This season, we're also looking for MARKSMEN PAIRS: Husband/Wife,
    Father/Son, Co-Workers or Siblings. If you and a close friend or relative
    are excellent shots, we want to hear from you both!

    i dont think they tested marksmanship to any great ability. it was mainly who was the luckiest shooter

    John all of the participents of that program had excellent shooting pedigrees. They all had to endure using unfamiliar weapons and conditions. They all used comman weapons and were not able to use their own. When they picked up a pistol or rifle it was for the first time without any idea as to how the weapon shot. Perhaps a little luck was involved. That is the case with almost any contest when you have people with nearly the same skill sets and levels involved.

    that is one of my complaints... the people should have been allowed to familiarize themselves with each weapon for a short period of time, including a few practice shots before being given a challenge with that weapon. you cant take a battle rifle out of a crate and expect someone to hit anything with it without first having the sights halfway aligned.

    That's why I'll not watch again. Too much ambiguity.
    Were all the weapons zeroed? At what distance, and by whom?

    While I agree to the premise of shooting something you're not acustomed to, in all fairness, you should be given the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the firearm.

    Maybe I was expecting something different.

    i didnt think the slingshot, bow, and knife throwing should have been included. although it was the premise of the show "not with 1 weapon, but any weapon"

    I would have a ball on that show! I am not great with any one type of fire arm but I am good with all of them. and I would love the archery slingshot knife throwing part!

    I actually prefer the shooting challenge that was on the Outdoor Channel I think. It was staged in Cody Wyoming and was more of a real test of hunting type shooting skills. Can't remember the name of the show but it featured sporting clays, hunting shots at a moving deer target, steel prairie dogs etc. Shooters used their own hunting guns for the show. Center-fire rifles both large and small, handguns both center and rim-fire and shotgun contests. Teams consisted to two men with scores combined. I watched top shot and was not particularly impressed either. Won't watch it this year unless I'm really bored.
