Historical rifle expert Garry James walks us through the Kentucky long rifle.
Ashley believes he has the skill to win, but knows luck is also a part of the equation.
Join us as we watch this Sneak Peak of Top Shot.
Oh Mi Sun (Jang Shin Yeong), a stewardess who manages the drinks and food on the "red-eye" train from Yeosu to Seoul, is working during the train's final run before it will be retired.
Wes Craven takes terror to the friendly skies in this thriller. Rachel McAdams stars as Lisa Reisert, a desk manager in a swanky Miami hotel that is about to play host to a high-ranking homeland security official. On a red-eye flight back to Miami, Lisa meets a fellow passenger whose cool veneer hides a sinister mission: he needs Lisa's help to assassinate the official.
Lisa Reisert (Rachel McAdams) is a young woman with more than her share of anxieties about flying. However, when circumstances demand she go to Miami, she gathers her nerves and books a seat on a late-night flight. Sitting next to her is a handsome and charming man named Jackson (Cillian Murphy), whom she already met in the airport, but once their jet is safely in the air, Lisa discovers he's not the pleasant traveling companion she imagined. Jackson is part of a terrorist cell plotting to kill the head of Homeland Security, and he's decided to draft Lisa into helping him. While Lisa has no interest in abetting Jackson's plan, he soon reveals he's holding a trump card — his compatriots are holding Lisa's father hostage, and will kill him if she doesn't cooperate.
A woman in search of her one true love encounters one hilarious circumstance after another.
Moments after takeoff, Lisa's seatmate, Jackson (Cillian Murphy), menacingly reveals the real reason he's on board: He is an operative in a plot to kill a rich and powerful businessman .... And Lisa is the key to its success. If she refuses to cooperate, her father will be killed by an assassin awaiting a call from Jackson.
The final four must crawl through a tunnel, dodge barbed wire, and slither through mud with an AK-47. With the title of Top Shot All-Stars at stake, various weapons from the season test the speed and precision of the last two competitors in this fast-paced showdown.

In the most daunting challenge to date, marksmen are strapped to a mechanical arm and sent soaring with the SP89. While rotating in a large circle they must shoot out a series of targets or face elimination. Two competitors zoom down a zip line course, putting their recoil management and rapid transitioning skills to the test.

With the half the competition eliminated, the remaining eight marksmen continue to vie for the top spot. In a season first, competitors blast clay birds mid flight with Benelli Shotguns. In the elimination challenge, the cross bow pits two competitors against each other. But this season there's an All Star twist and contestants have to put up or be shut down--permanently.
Split into squads of three, the nine remaining competitors face the most extreme and exciting trick shots of seasons past. Their talents are put to the test as they open capped bottles, blow cotton swabs to bits, and knock soda cans out of the air. Transported to the battlefields of yore, two players on the verge of elimination must successfully man Hotchkiss Cannons or be sent home.
A returning challenge receives a daring makeover, literally throwing contestants for a loop. The spin of a wheel determines their bodies' angle as they aim with the Rutgers Security Six Revolver. But two veteran marksmen do not deliver, sending them to the elimination round where they must cleanly fire a bullet through a narrow tube. Failing to shoot on the straight and narrow will unseat one and preserve his opponent for another day.
Long-range sniper shots are a Top Shot staple, but a challenge of this magnitude has yet to be seen. Marksmen are put to the test with the Barrett M-Rad. But the wind sends their bullets astray and two flunk out, forced to face elimination. Credited with killing off the Wooly Mammoth, the prehistoric Atlatl will lead one competitor's future to extinction.
The fate of twelve rests on a roll of the dice. The competitors break into squads for a fierce side-by-side shoot out with the 1875 Remington Pistol. But fortune doesn't favor two, who must fire against the clock with the Ruger 1022 Rifle in an old-fashioned shooting gallery challenge. One will fall short and one will continue on to battle it out for the ultimate prize.
In a challenge best suited for a British battlefield in the Middle Ages, contestants test their skills with the Black Widow Long Bow. But as they fire arrows toward targets set up like ski-ball, the marksmen realize the challenge is more than they bargained for. Two confront the prospect of elimination and must adapt to the revolutionary Gatling Gun to stay in the game.
Fourteen remaining marksmen face an old challenge with a new twist. Players must pick a rival to shoot against in a head to head, high-speed showdown featuring the Sig Sauer P229. However, when two buddies head to the elimination round, friendships are put to the test. Nothing short of perfection will allow them to edge out their competition and guarantee their futures.
For the first time in Top Shot history, trick shots will determine who stays and who goes. Reminiscent of a Wild West Show, three teams of five perform the Annie Oakley shot; knock back bowling pins, and shoot pipes out of mannequins' mouths. Showy shots challenge two marksmen sent to elimination, where only one will progress while the other is sent packing.
Many have fallen short of the title; now sixteen All-Stars compete to become the next Top Shot.
From the Kentucky Flintlock Pistol to Crossbows and Grenade launchers--an epic assortment of weapons are featured. Four marksmen gear up to blast their way through the home stretch with hopes of becoming History's next Top Shot.
