    Watching now. A little to much of a "reality show" flavor for me. But the rifles are cool.

    Boy, the way that dude Kelly drilled those targets in the elimination round was really pretty cool.

    Pretty neat high speed camera footage too.

    Anybody wanna bet by the time the series is over, the stars are humping each other and the "real" action is off the range?


    Maybe I'm not giving Hollywood enough credit...we'll see.

    Yeah, I was also disappointed with the format. I guess getting "voted off the island" sells a lot of advertising.

    I'm still gonna watch. The shooting was fun.

    One of the local IPSC shooters interviewed for that show, but wasn't "hollyweird" enough to make the show.

    I'll give it a 6 week run before it's cancelled.

    I watched the first 20 mins or so. I'm not sure what the criteria is to get on that show but anyone who cant hit a target with an 03 at 100 yards certainly would not meet my qualifications.

    Yeah, I wondered about that guy who shot probably 30 times at the 100 yard target and never hit it.

    I have seen rifles with rusted out bores from corrosive primers shoot like that. I can't imagine he was that bad. At 100 yards, a target that big should be a piece of cake.

    Hard to say why he missed so badly so many times.

    I thought it was boooring, did like the exploding targets. We should have clays that react to a hit like that, now that would be fun.

    You signed off a little too soon Remstar.

    That same guy had to go head to head at the end with this 22 year old who could really shoot. He got schooled there too, the other kid drilled 200, 400 and 600 yard targets in 4 shots total, had to fire twice at the 600.

    Short shucker, I'm sure the whole run of the show has been completed and filmed. I'd think they'd at least show this one series.

    The 1st episode will be rebroadcast Tuesday June 8th at 10pm EDT & Wednesday June 9th at 8pm EDT. All original episodes will be broadcast on Sunday nights at 10pm EDT. I'm sure rebroadcasts of each episode will be rebroadcast at the same time slots as the 1st.

    I think the format was weak to say the least. Dennis p

    Got to agree - the voted of was lame. Kid could shot - and the 'shoot off' illustrated why he could hit with the '06.

    Unfortunatly the wife and I got bored also after about 10 minutes of watching it...

    We enjoyed the rest of our evening after we put in our DVD of the "Showman Shooter", featuring Herb Parsons the legendary Winchester Rep and his unusual shooting abilities...Now that was good watching, and we never tire of it.
