Seen it before but was glad to see it again on when I just came through the front door. Watched Jerry Miculek bump fire his 1911 and speed reload his revolver blind folded...that man rocks.

Yes!!!

I just got done watching it for the first time. That is the best shooting show I have ever seen...

...Awesome!!!

I'm recording a re-broadcast so I can see parts of it again in slo-mo and stop-frame.

My dad was watching it earlier and I caught a few minutes. Really neat.

Imagine a day when a whole town would come out to see an exhibition marksman - and sit and watch while he shot 5,000 targets...

The show immediately following it was good too. I find I watch four channels more than any others; Fox News, History Channel, Discovery, and SciFi. Speaking of Discovery; Bear is on now.

I enjoyed the show and was surprised to see them use two antique rifles that I have, a rolling block Remington and a Winchester 92 ... wish mine were in the same condition as the ones used on the show ... both mine are well over 100 years old and shoot fine ...

I have seen that guy with a bow shoot an asprin out of the air. That guy is the best ever with a bow, Furgeson I think his name is.

I just assumed they were Uberti clones, judging by the condition. But I could be wrong.

I believe he menitoned they were replicas on the program. Easy point to miss however.

The Hillbilly Story afterwards was pretty interesting as well. They went into some battlefields and found some old revolvers and other artifacts from when the "Hillbilly militia" overpowered British troops with guerilla tactics.

Way to go Militiamen!

So I seem tor emember another episode of "Extreme Marksmen" with different shots. How many have been done thus far? I've really enjoyed it. I've seen the episode in discussion three times now.

Not sure if this was the same show, but i watched Tom Knapp shoot through a hole in a washer with a .22. Really cool. He hit the first time but got it on the second.

I watched it. Good show. I liked Jerry Muelik shooting 12 shots in a reload with a revolver Blindfolded in under 6 seconds.

Also the "1911 machine gun". he fires 10 rounds with a speed of 640 rounds a min.

I believe there was a similar program called "Sharpshooters" that was on last year. Mostly the same shooters, but some different shots. Watch the listings--it will probably come around again.

I saw it and it was pretty good, but it got to side tracked. Sure I might want to know the history of hanging or this and that, but I was more interested in the shooting parts.

Better than most shows though.
