    Don't know any of them, but I read their bios the other day....some impressive shooters in there, but we all know what that means. Nothing! ;)

    Looking forward to the show.

    I agree. I hope that is not true. Unfortunately, the way the show is setup makes it a "Boys Club". Voting eliminates fairness of performance.

    "Colin plans to use his special training in criminal profiling to get inside his opponents' heads."

    Well, I have my guess as to who is going to follow in Jake's footsteps. I thought they said they were trying to cut down on the manufactured drama this season.

    Don't know of them, but I won't be able to watch anyway. It's back to college in 11 days.

    Craig Buckland is a national revolver champion in IDPA.

    Forrest McCord has been shooting IPSC since he was about 14 making quite a few matches the last 6-7 years or so. As a result, he has quite a bit of match experience for his years. Oh, and he has a hot mom!

    Don't know any of the others.

    The "Team" consept and the "Voting out" is a complete turn-off for me. Then all the scripted drama and conflict last season REALLY turned me off.

    It would be great if the whole elimination process was based on shooting ability... Low score goes home.

    Can I still post that I hate Jake? Is it too late for that?

    I watched season 1 (I was excited to finally have a good gun show)and thought that the way they "eliminated" contestants ensured that acuall shooting skill had very little to do with who would wins,its all who is buddies with who and then gang up on others.Never watched another show since.
    It would be a good show if it used points or actually have a scoring method for the shooting,then have eliminations for the lowest scores.Then the person who wins is really the top shot,not the top buddy.

    She's hot but.....she got all of her training in the military. Those of us who have done it already know, that's one way to use one gun. With the situations they throw at them, that isn't enough.

    I see they got the token women on the show again. Good luck but their stay will be short.

    I do enjoy the show however set up it is.

    I scoffed at it at first, but I was watching Pawn Stars with my new wife, and it came on afterward, and she really got into it. We enjoy watching it together.

    I haven't watched more than a couple episodes; it is just "Survivor" with guns, but I have been at several matches with Craig Buckland and he is a legit badass revolver shooter; probably the second best in the country. I would assume he is a fine shooter all the way around unlike many of the contestants they seem to get.

    They are also going to have one of the best pistol shooters in the world today as as a "consulting expert" this season; I plan to watch that episode whenever it is.

    I hate how they NEVER shoot the guns they show in the intro video...the PKM, the SVD, the Desert Eagle, the G3, the RPG, and countless things they showed before.

    EDIT: This might be just as misleading as the intro video weapons, but did anybody notice that most of the contestants have german WWII weapons in the pictures?
