While I do not normally post advertisements, I thought this beneficial enough for you, my loyal readers, to warrant me posting it …

Are you an amazing marksman? You could win $100,000 in prizes on the History Channel

If you are skilled with a pistol, rifle or any other firearm, you could win $100,000 in prizes on TV’s first marksmanship competition show. The History Channel and the producers of The Ultimate Fighter are looking for anyone with mind-blowing shooting skills and a big personality to take on exciting physical challenges with multiple guns and mystery projectile weapons.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a professionally trained shooter or a self-taught, average Joe (or Jane!). As long as you’re in good physical shape, have mastered a firearm and can adapt to new weapons and demanding physical situations, you could be America’s first “Top Shot.”


To apply, email with your name, city/state, phone number, a recent photo of yourself and a brief explanation of why you should be on the show. Deadline to apply is January 18, 2010. For more information, visit and click on “CASTING” or call 818-728-3729 TODAY!

  • Applicants must be at least 21 years of age, a resident or citizen of the United States and reasonably proficient with shooting and marksmanship

    After this "People Speak" Howard Zinn travesty, I wouldn't be seen on the history Channel for anytihng.

    "the producers of The Ultimate Fighter"

    This part has me raising my eyebrow, and not in a good way. While I am a fan of the sport of mixed martial arts, the most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter REALLY turned off a lot of fans by becoming more of stereotypical reality TV than a competition-oriented show.

    I'm reminded of the reviewer complaint about the "gun store reality TV" show about the clientele being too normal...
