Last week we had to say goodbye to another celebrity look alike in Dylan Fletcher (Guy Fieri, credit to Lars at NRAblog.com). Dylan seemed like a natural leader for the blue team but was a little blasé when it came to getting serious about competition. He called Willie out in the challenge and got annihilated.
This week we get to say hello to the original Too Shot, former Brit Iain Harrison. Fittingly from what I understand the Lee Enfield .303 British infantry rifle and the Webley revolver are our competition guns of choice. We’re not unfamiliar with the Lee Enfield (rifle review here) but I’ve never fired a Webley so I’m pumped to see the break action revolver in play.
Tonight’s Mind Dump is being written from my iPad in an attempt to condense my thoughts into a faster read. Also the Mac is on the fritz so no pics. BLARG!
- Oh yeah, forgot BLUE team hates each other now. Littlejohn won’t make eye contact with Willie as he gives out his victory speech
- Augie stepping up as a BLUE team leader trying to latch things up. MAY have thrown Dylan under the bus there.
- The Webley Mark VI revolver. SWEET! MacGruber is excited.
- Emphasis on Iain Harrison as a former British Infantryman, he’s an American citizen now. Greets Colby with a “Top of the morning!”
- Both teams unfamiliar with this gun. Gary Shank on RED seems to know everything about every old gun.
- Looks like Terry wants to take Iain on a date. Yes he’s that excited. Better watch out Carol!
TEAM CHALLENGE/TEAM MEETING:
- Ahhhhhh a speed challenge with moving targets. The jar rack with red & blue paint inside 35 feet away. Should be pretty!
- Each team member gets a full cylinder (six shots). First team to take out all targets win.
- No way, they sat Gabby!!! She struggled with the Double Action trigger anyway in practice which works well for RED.
- Terry goes first. Because he’s British I’m guessing. These moving targets will be tough with the crappy sights on the Webley.
- MacGruber: “The team that misses the most is the team that loses.” You’re kidding me!
- RED absolutely killing it. Slow for both teams but RED setting the pace. BLUE rushing too much.
- RED wins, BLUE heading to elimination again. Surprise, surprise. Chee Kwan raking the final stage in Double Action. Impressive.
- Ahhhh Terry. The man steps up and owns up to a poor performance. Honorable move.
- Now the argument is who joins him. Will just won’t say he was the second worse. He’s convinced of his own greatness.
- Careful if you vote Gregory Giantjohn in based in weak pistol performance, there’ll be a rifle in elimination.
- So it’s going to be Greg and Terry squaring off in elimination. This will be Terry’s second, remember he sent Michelle home, and Greg’s THIRD!
- As predicted the guys are using an Enfield Mark 3 rifle. Little trivia, Lee Enfield was actually a dentist! Sounds like a dentist name.
- I can testify to how fast the bolt runs on this gun. Very well designed and made.
- Iain is back, pretty decent teacher on the speed side of things.
- Guys are doing what’s called the “Mad Minute.” Basically a head to head shoot off with one minute to get as many hits as possible at a set target down range. The target is a 24″ steel target at 200 yards distance. Each hit scores a point. The most hits at the end of 60 seconds win.
- Here we go. Greg is first.
- Colby tells us officers accepted 15 hits in the mad minute, the average was 25 and the all time record is 38 hits in one minute! This includes reloads!
- Greg recovers well after missing his first several.
- Terry starts off faster does better reloads but he struggles toward the end.
- Another tie! Greg & Terry each have 6 hits, but Greg only fired 11 to Terry’s 14, Terry goes home! Bahhhh, it would be the episode where Iain is here that he heads home.
Stay tuned for next week when the Green shirts come out!
