    We almost had one of our members step up for a previous show, but had to back out due to family commitments.

    C'mon DC'ers! We need some representation!

    Exactly.....do it for the team! Would be awesome for a forum member to get the chance and a boost to the forum as well!

    I figure there will be little talk and more shooting. Its casting....not a talk show. LOL!

    Can we please have a shooting show where the outcomes are based on performance and not based on building alliances or conflicting personalities. I would also like a show that I can see and hear things go bang. The last straw with that other show was when they were made to throw stones. Ridiculous!

    Yah. I remember that one, and what-a-surprise; expert shooters do not necessarily excel at throwing rocks. Very dumb.

    I still watch the show though. If I could take a month off, I'd do it.

    No exactly the opposite. No nominating or voting. Let the shooting do the talking.

    I suck at throwing rocks. Kinda the reason I carry a Springfield and not a sling. Willing to bet I can take Nolan Ryan if he gets to pick up a rock and I get a good sight picture...

    I don't care who wins those competitions. I just like to watch things go *bang*. The season 2 finale of Top Shot always makes my eyes sweat a little, though.

    I don't mind making a fool of myself as long as it's not on national TV.

    Exactly. To take a month off and shoot in an 'historical' type setting...... oh yeah! If I could afford to a month off I'd apply.
    Dunno if they'd want me though, I like to avoid drama in my like if I can help it. That's why I love my wife's TiVo..... I fast forward thru the 'drama' stuff and just watch the shooting.....
