I received an email from a digital marketing consultant working with the History Channel about doing a post including the link, pictures and videos about their upcoming new show “Top Shot” and I gladly accepted the invitation.
“Top Shot” is sixteen of some of the most skilled marksmen in the nation carefully chosen to compete for the title “Top Shot” and a $100,000 prize package. The winner will have to be skilled in everything from muzzle-loading muskets and pistols to throwing knives and sling shots.
Each week, the marksmen will face both individual and team elimination challenges until one winner remains. Every challenge will focus on the weapons, techniques and technologies of different historical eras as the skillful execution of each test is captured in extreme slow-motion by hi-speed HD cameras.
“Top Shot” premieres on Sunday, June 6th at 10pm EST ( .
Also I wanted to tell you about a very cool sweepstakes that they asked me to let you know about as well.
