    Contestant for Top SHot season 5

    Season 4 of Top Shot will begin soon. I have a very good friend interested in becoming a contestant for season 5. He's retired army and owns a gunsmith shop in South Louisiana. He's posted an audition video on Youtube here for your entertainment.

    Sons of Guns?

    Well my friend Rob hasn't heard from Top Shot yet. However, he did get a call from the producer of Sons Of Guns. They recently lost one of their gunsmiths and he's got a shot at filling the spot.

    Thanks to everyone that viewed his video!!

    Great video. I think he may possibly get a call from Top Shot. He certainly desrves it.

    Thanks for trying.

    I heard smart phone users having this issue. I was told there is a setting for this but I'm not sure what it is.

    Top Shot was canceled, there won't be a season 5

    Last word I got was that it hadn't been cancelled, but they were debating whether to renew the contract for a fifth season.

    What do you have that's newer than mid-April?

    Well, a cancellation would reduce his chances.

    From what I understand, he's spent a few days filming with Sons of Guns. Apparently they've even given him a nickname... we'll see what happens.

    Hopefully SofG doesn't get cancelled too.

    That was really good when he came up out of the swamp.
    I think he would be great for the show.

    Will do.

    Rob's an OC guy but, he's not an internet forum guy. He's one of the many here in La. that OC yet are not actively involved with groups like OCDO. However, he does engage in spreading the word by educating his customers about OC.

    He was very disappointed to find out that he wasn't allowed to OC whle filming at Red Jacket.

    Edit - I found out he was able to OC with them "in the field". Perhaps he'll persude them over to "shop" carry.

    I about hurled when he was spinning the gun on his finger at 5:22.

    Trolling aside I thought the video was awful, and corny.

    >shoots randomly into the woods with various weapons

    >"now that I've shown you my marksmanship skills i wanna be top shot lolololololol"




    Seems like a nice guy though - just had a really cheesy video.

    I agree... some of it is cheesy. lol!! My favorite part is him saying "A quick word on experience and training"... AND then he begins the story at childhood. Ha!!

    He was trying to go for entertainment as much as anything. He had sent in an application for season 4 with a much more serious and boring video. He didn't get a call so he thought he'd try this. If you laughed, then mission accomplished.

    Though he's attempting to get into the entertainment business, he takes his current gunsmithing VERY seriously. He's considered one of the best around. I hope they capture that in SoG.

    Thanks for viewing!
