Watch marksmen use astonishing skill to complete a variety of shooting challenges and learn about the familiar and not-so-familiar weapons they use on ‘Top Shot.’
“Top Shot” is a television show that first aired on the History Channel in 2010. Although the show does not air any longer, you can still see all the episodes of its five season run.
The show consists of 16 contestants that compete in various shooting challenges against one another to show their skills and expertise using a range of weapons. Contestants use weapons ranging from firearms such as handguns, pistols, rifles, grenade launders, and bows to thrown weapons such as knives and hatchets.
The show starts out with two teams of eight. At the end of each show, both teams vote to send one of their team members to the elimination challenge. The two that were voted face off in an elimination challenge and the loser goes home.
When there are only eight contestants left, the teams disappear and each contestant now works individually. The worst performer of each challenge goes home. The last one remaining is the winner of “Top Shot” and $100,000.
Here is where you can catch the entire series.
Season one starts with contestants weaving through an obstacle course using unfamiliar rifles from different eras. The show ends with a long-distance sniper elimination challenge.
