I gotta admit, it's getting on my nerves the way they keep calling the Venezuelan woman "quite a little sniper", or saying they are amazed at how well she performs.

She's a damn Olympic shooter! She competes against the best on the planet! Show a little respect, guys.

PROLOG...Top Shot season 2 champion Chris Reed returns to instruct the shooters on several modern shotguns. One team crumbles in the team challenge, leading to a tense nomination discussion. The final challenge is a head-to-head shotgun battle that sends one contestant packing.

_________________________________________________________________________

Damn. There goes my favorite reason to watch the show...

And, while he seems to do a damn fine job of running his team, the older cop on the red team is just too positive about everything...

EPISODE #4


"Crossbow Crossfire"


Premier Date: 3/6/2012

_________________________________________________________________________

As the field of marksmen narrows, one team holds an urgent meeting in an attempt to reconcile their differences. The team challenge features an ultra-modern, high-power crossbow that fires bolts at a stunning 350 feet per second. In the aftermath of a nail-biting archery duel, the elimination challenge is a fight to the finish with what many consider the "Perfect Pistol."

_________________________________________________________________________

The First Team Challenge involves a pair of shooters from each team shooting a crossbow
to a single spinning target. As each pair of shooters comes up, an additional target is added. Shooters will accumulate points for each target hit, but each individual round ends after one
player shoots all of his targets.


WINNER: RED Team

_________________________________________________________________________

The Nomination picks for the Elimination challenge from the BLUE Team are: Greg & Colin

__________________________________________________________________________

The Elimination event involves the players shooting at a disk to activate a pendulum which will swing through an opening, revealing 10 targets of different sizes. The first shooter to hit all 10 targets wins.

LOSER: Colin

I'm a week behind because I can only catch it online. I just saw the shotgun episode. By the time I've seen it everyone else is already done discussing it. :(

Some of those people need some serious work on their shotgun skills.

To help MikeD feel in the loop... the photography in the shotgun episode was fantastic, wasn't it?

Yes it is, and it's one of the things I really like about the show.

OK, i watched it.

I would have thought that they would have used PSE's TAC 15 crossbow. I actually had never heard of the one that they used.

BigFatGuy said:
The best line came at the end: a 31 year old man just gave a 36 year old man a friendship bracelet!

That and the "I thought you guys were getting married" comment as they walked off the field. LOL

Colin just had a WTF? look during the whole exchange. LOL

Is it just me or did neither of these guys have very good recoil control and were readjusting their grip at almost every shot?

Colby's comment about hoping the next challenge didn't involve a 1911 evoked a bit of a chuckle out of me as well. I thought the guy had missed the target completly.

Two marksmen slug it out in the elimination challenge, using one of the most durable pistols on the planet.

_________________________________________________________________________

The First Team Challenge involves both teams swinging from one elevated platform
to another over a 20-foot gap, then fire one shot at a set of 5 glass jugs from
30 feet with one hand and swing back. One shooter per jug; the next shooter
must wait to swing out until the previous one has either swung back or climbed up.
First team to hit all 5 jugs wins.


WINNER: BLUE Team
