Ahhh yes, the grenades from last week. Seemed a little lackluster to me then, but not I’m really wanting to get my hands on a Milkor launcher for review. Wonder what they would say? Oh well, I’m gonna not waste any time and jump into this week’s Top Shot 4 Mind Dump recap. Love me some Benelli shotguns, so I’m pumped about this episode. Plus all my ladies are in the family room watching with me, so I’m not on my own tonight!
How would I summarize tonight’s show in one sentence if you want to skip all the nonsense below? Cool shotgun action, RED team dominates, BLUE team sucks at communication and Greg Littlejohn cried… TWICE.
- I love MacGruber, errr Kyle Sumpter. He really does seem like a legitimately classy dude though.
- RED appears fairly unified from the outside looking in, BLUE notsomuch. Coming out in practice too.
- SHOTGUN night. Colby is introducing both the Benelli M4 and Benelli Vinci. Love Benelli shotguns, which is why I have 3
- CHRIS REED IS MY HOMEBOY! Seriously humble quality guy. Bumped into him at SHOT and he’s the same dude in person as he is on TV.
- Not wasting any time getting to it. 2 shooters up at once. The M4 shooter is taking aim at a 4″ steel plate. Each hit launches a clay. Teams get a point for each clay hit and after 4 minutes whichever team has the most points will win. RED team is going first.
- RED team shooting and communicating very well. A couple hiccups but nothing major. Chris Cheng definitely a standout on moving targets both with plates and birds. Iggy looks like he’s struggling a bit.
- Really should give kudos to this camera crew. Their slow motion and high speed camera work is staggeringly awesome.
- BLUE team already very unimpressive in this challenge. Lackadaisical and very poor communication.
- Not an exciting challenge, but the ability to hit a moving target says a lot about the quality of a shooter IMHO. BLUE not impressing.
- I’m predicting a major IMPLOSION from BLUE at their team meeting. Wonder if it’s gonna be “performance based?”
- RED team – 17 targets, BLUE team – 9 targets. HUMILIATING.
- Will the one saying it like it is while everyone else just pats each other on the behind. Greg refusing to shoot a “friend’s” target because that’s who he wants to be there with.
- Terry Vaughan taking responsibility for his performance. Respectable.
- Greg Littlejohn cried.
- The way voting worked out Terry Vaughan has the final vote and basically chooses Michelle V. as his challenger.
- Awwwww yeah! The Benelli Nova is up next. My first Benelli shotgun!
- Yes Terry another shotgun.
- Both Terry & Michelle look to have very little experience if any on a pump shotgun. If anything, Terry’s strength (to sustain 12 gauge type blows and resist reloading fatigue) will be an advantage here. AND Taran Butler (the expert) just said the exact same thing.
- Head to Head challenge. Like they all should be. Challenge starts with buckshot, 3 headed wheel target starts spinning down track, then when your “horse” moves past a marker you CAN (but don’t have to) switch to slugs. First shooter to the end wins. It’s a leg race.
- Just noticed there’s a triangle block on the side of the wheel. So it’s not rolling smooth on the track. That said, Michelle having an impossible time keeping momentum on her target. Terry moving his along no problem.
- Terry wins in convincing fashion. Michelle gets absolutely smoked.
- Once again, woman in an elimination challenge = going home. I think Greg Littlejohn is crying again.
Crossbows next week. Hopefully they won’t have to shoot rocks out of them.
