I've been meaning to open a thread on "gun TV" for some time.. Think most of us are in agreement re; "top shot".. and "sons of gun".. The other first choice (MHO stuff) is in the gun history category, Gunny Lee started this genre (yeah i know, impressive huh) with his "male call" shows, then the history channel started "history of the gun".. and recently i've seen another one thats even better.."top gun".. This is a comparison of different design platforms.. The host has his act together.. I thought he was a SEAL but on today's program this wasn't mentioned, so not sure if i have my facts straight on that part..
I've seen two episodes, and they pretty much follow the same format.. the evolution of the weapons platform from WWI era thru to current.. Both have been first class, and both have featured in depth coverage of the weapons, and then the shooting comparison thats done by those who know and use them.. Today's was focused on the BAR.. had a Navy weapons instructor, and a Marine force recon (didn't own a cat) who finished up as a SEAL.. This was pretty cool, it featured a shoot out between the host, the instructor, and the Marine/SEAL who was a guy in his late forties, early fifties, from south TX.. comparison between three weapons, with those three pressing the trigger at a 100 Yd target..
the "old man" pretty well kicked ass.. Remember this was a 100 yds.. target looked like those i've posted at 15 yds.. ok looked like it, except group size was like 1/2.. the host was so impressed with the old boys shooting he says (wanted to remember the guys name, and of course can't) he shoots so well he could have beat us with a tomahawk..
a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
