The Guns of Top Shot, Season Three, Episode Eight: None Op-Ed by Robert Farago | Sep 27, 2011 | 17 comments facebook twitter linkedin email comments Ralph says: September 27, 2011 at 23:20 Spitballs? Greek Fire? Angry Remarks? Why is it called Top Shot, anyway? Reply Dan Zimmerman says: September 27, 2011 at 23:43 Didn’t watch it. Won’t watch it. It can be difficult enough to sit through when they’re using cool bangsticks. No guns, no interest. Reply Chris Dumm says: September 28, 2011 at 00:02 I caught a few minutes of arrow-bouncing stupidity at the hotel bar just now. Pretty weak sauce. If the producers realize that tiddlywinks and Quarters are also (kind of) target contests too, we’re hosed. Reply matt says: September 28, 2011 at 00:25 I’m surprised they havent used air rifles or a truck/helicopter mounted gun yet. Reply Rob J says: September 28, 2011 at 00:29 My 5 year old loved it. So, I was forced to watch the whole thing. Reply Rich T says: September 28, 2011 at 01:02 Next week they’ll be throwing live hamsters through a burning window @ 5 paces…. Feel the tension build Reply Mr. Lion says: September 28, 2011 at 10:25 At least that would be a more practical skill than bouncing arrows off a steel plate at 20 feet. Reply sdog says: September 28, 2011 at 01:25 i thought mike getting punked when he raised his voice pretty funny. Reply JOE MATAFOME says: September 28, 2011 at 07:10 We need a new show called TOP GUNS, and then we won’t have to watch all these silly weapons they throw at us. Reply DonWorsham says: September 28, 2011 at 08:28 No guns? Un-American. Reply Hunter S. says: September 28, 2011 at 08:37 hahaha… the headline caught me off guard Reply Sid says: September 28, 2011 at 08:48 Next week on Top Shot….. beer pong and lawn darts…. Reply Mike Sweeney says: September 28, 2011 at 09:42 Lawn Darts! They need a Lawn Dart episode! Oh wait, those things are illegal in Commiefornia. :-/ Reply JOE MATAFOME says: September 28, 2011 at 17:40 I hope you don’t mind Mike, but I’m going to be using “Commiefornia” whenever I refer to the COMMIE capitol of the US. They will now be known as “THE PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF COMMIEFORNIA” I which I had come up with the new name myself. Reply Jordan says: September 28, 2011 at 10:28 I saw a preview for it when someone said theres no practice involved in using a bow. What a simple minded idiot. Reply ExurbanKevin says: September 28, 2011 at 14:32 Given the amount of crossover between hunting with guns and archery, I’m cool with one or two episodes a season devoted to something other than guns. Cliff’s comments about “slowing down and using the fundamentals” could apply to archery, revolvers or RPG-7’s. 🙂 Reply Jon Marler says: September 29, 2011 at 17:17 That was the last episode of this BS reality show that I’ll be watching. I don’t care if Jake wins or goes home. Top Shot is a BS reality show where in-between the typical profanity laden whining of a reality show, maybe you might see some shooting. Jersey Shore is more entertaining than this show. At least Jersey Shore doesn’t pretend to be something it isn’t. I’m so insulted by this show I’m writing actual complaint letters and sending them in the snail mail. They should rename the show “Housewives of the Gun Range” and just drop all the pretense that it’s a marksmanship competition, because it clearly is not.
