There will be a complete rundown of Top Shot tomorrow, but for now … here are five quick thoughts on tonight's episode of the History Channel's blockbuster:
- Tonight's challenge called for competitors to shoot a Browning 1919 machine-gun from the back of a World War II halftrack. And to think I dared to say the challenges were getting boring. Okay, just the last challenge, but this more then made up for it.
- Greg Littlejohn, second up in the Browning 1919 challenge, hit 8 out of 15 targets with his 100 rounds of ammo to take the win. No matter what people thought of Littlejohn during the earlier episodes, he's grabbed the bull by the horns and become a heck of a threat.
- With the vote standing at 3 for Augie and 1 for Gary, Augie decided to cause a little drama by putting a round through Kyle's target. Sure enough, Kyle dropped the tie breaking shot and joined Augie in elimination.
- Elimination practice called for the use of flashcards. Yes, flashcards. It seemed to work for Kyle as he fully embraced the idea while Augie was more reserved. It didn't look good for Augie heading into the showdown.
- The elimination challenge called for a KIMs Game; KIMs as in keep in memory. Memorize ten objects, traverse a rope line, grab the PS90 and hit the ten objects you saw. Augie planned to memorize five objects, traverse, shoot, repeat. Kyle planned to remember all then fire away. Unfortunately for Kyle, his memory betrayed him and Augie sent Sumpter home.
