Top Shot, Season 2 Starts Tonight on the HISTORY Channel!

Hi all…

Last season, I was instantly a fan of the new show Top Shot on the HISTORY Channel, which pit modern marksmen (and markswomen) against historical challenges using some surprising weapons. So when we heard that the new season was starting up, we were thrilled!

Season 2 starts tonight at 10/9c on HISTORY with a new set of 16 competitors. And again, they come from a variety of backgrounds with different levels of experience. But a couple of things remain the same – they all want to win $100,000 and the title of “Top Shot.” Hosted by Colby Donaldson, it will be interesting to see what challenges await these marksmen.

Weapons will be a bit different this season than last as well, according to the HISTORY website:

“Weapons this season include more than 20 weapons including the iconic “Tommy Gun“, the .44 Magnum, and a .50 caliber sniper rifle. Not just firearms, the competition also includes archery and primitive weapons as well.”

Last year it was Iain Harrison who took home the title. And we were rooting for Kelly Bachand as well. Who will be our favorites this season?

Be sure to tune in tonight at 10/9c on HISTORY for the season premiere of TOP SHOT!

Farewell to Kelly Bachand on Top Shot!

Hey all…

We’ve been watching Top Shot! on the History Channel since it started a few weeks ago. And at the top of the list of contestants we were rooting for was Kelly Bachand – the youngest competitor in the field. Unfortunately, Kelly was sent home along with Adam Benson this week in the episode “The Shortest Fuse”.

Honestly, I have no idea how the guys were able to shoot that fuse as it scurried across the board to the explosive cap. Not only was it tiny, but it wiggled around!

I’m not a huge weapons guy, but I can appreciate the skill and talent of those who have it. Kelly managed to compete against folks twice his age and come out on top more times than not. So he did an amazing job throughout the competition.

Now we’re cheering for Kelly’s “Red Team” teammate – Peter Palma. Though I have to say there’s a couple of folks at my house rooting for J.J. Racaza too.

Next Sunday is the season finale and we’ll see who, among the 4 competitors left – Peter, J.J., Iain Harrison, and Chris Cerino – walks away with the prize.

Again, best of luck to Kelly in everything he does and hopefully we’ll have another great episode this Sunday! Go Pete!
