    I thought I was decent with a lever action Winchester, then I watched this program, and I felt woefully inadequate. :P

    YES! This was awesome. That washer shot was one of the best shots I've ever seen!

    All these shooters are awesome.

    "BadLands" Bill Oglesby is amazing to watch in person, his wife is a also a exhibition shooter in her own right.


    I was fortunate to meet him at End of Trail yrs ago.
    Bill had to have someone (neutral person)load and unload his guns as other competitors didn't believe he shot the required rounds per stage.

    We became instant friends, I was lucky enough to be invited to attend his SASS/CAS shooting school (Held on his property in Springfield Ill.)

    The work (gunsmithing) he does on SA, lever guns and 1911's is awesome.

    I wish I had 1/10th the skill these guys have.

    Edit:
    typo's
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    I started to watch it last night and then fell asleep

    The skill of the true experts is truly astounding.

    Hopefully the DVD will show up on netflix. Paying for TV service littered with commercials is something I refuse to do.

    Yeah, tell me about it. They basically force you to watch that absolute filth. The best part is how psychologists try to figure out the best way to brainwash you into wanting to waste your money on their product and then force feed it to you over and over.

    The show will be like, "Here he goes, he's taking the shot...."

    My man! Assimilation by Hollyweird (soon Bollyweird) programming is not an option.

    'Send the children,' like mine? Sorry to disappoint, mine is an adult and fourth year doctor candidate at MUSC.

    *raises hand* I'm not going to be able to watch it this evening and would very much like to see the last 3/4s that I missed previously. If you do have a chance to encode it for download, it would be very much appreciated.

    For those that have Comcast you can reprogram your DVR remote. I now have a 30 second Fast Forward ability.

    When I hit the link posted nothing is there. Does it only run when the live show runs?

    Even a blind pig can find truffles. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musk

    Musk is the name originally given to a substance with a penetrating odor obtained from a gland of the male musk deer, which is situated between its stomach and genitals. The substance has been used as a popular perfume fixative since ancient times and is one of the most expensive animal products in the world. The name, originated from Sanskrit muṣká meaning "testicle" (as in a 'single' testicle), has come to encompass a wide variety of substances with somewhat similar odors although many of them are quite different in their chemical structures.

    OK folks...

    Encoding completed today while I was away from home, I'm currently uploading file to my web server. I'll post the link tomorrow morning, the upload won't be done before I go to bed tonight.

    Word of warning, the file is HUGE because I wanted to keep the original broadcast quality intact. The file comes out to 2.63 GIGABYTES. If you don't have a download manager you need to get one before trying to download this file. I recommend Flashget:

    The History Channel is possibly the best channel on TV. So many good programs. Modern Marvels may be one of the best.
