Round 6: Trick Shot Showdown
July 25

(C-Note: The challenges that you are about to read have been designed, tested, supervised, and played by experienced marksmen operating on a closed course. They are extremely dangerous and should never be attempted by anyone, anywhere, at any time.)

An old school shooting gallery with the Colt Peacemaker results in Denny showing his weakness, but Kelly and Andre are sent to the elimination challenge instead. Kelly survives, and Andre is gunned down, leaving ten.


The next day brings the next Practice Session. Today's practice involves trick shooting. Here to help is Jon "Trick Shot" Wilson. Your task is to recreate three of the best trick shots in history. Your weapons...

- Winchester Model 1873 (United States, 1873), last used in episode 5's Elimination Challenge
- Smith & Wesson M&P revolver (United States, 1899)
- S&W Schofield revolver (United States, 1875)

First shot is the Annie Oakley over-the-shoulder mirror shot using the Winchester. Second is the S&W 38, using it to shoot double action at tiny dots... one handed. Final shot is the Schofield shooting cabbage before it hits the ground. The secret is to shoot where the cabbage is going to fall, rather than shoot where it is right now. Call it the Space Invaders rule. Jon gives the edge to the Red Team, who are back at the ranch "shooting" bocce balls.


We have the over-the-back, the drilling-the-nail, and the toss-and-shoot. Choose a teammate to play the shot. Each shot gets three rounds. Each round is worth a point. In the fourth round, a half-can of soda worth 2 is used. Most points wins.

- Peter (red) sweeps.
- Tara (blue) also sweeps. We're tied at 3.

- Denny (red) misses all three
- Chris (blue) gets two for three. Blue leads, 5-3

- Brad (red) misses all three
- Iain (blue) gets one for three. Blue leads, 6-3

- Kelly (red) gets.... one for three. Blue wins, 6-5.

Playing it safe was a dumb move. From now on, it's all or nothing. Brad encouraged the team to play it safe. But Peter doesn't like to plot and plan.


Kelly: BRAD
Denny: KELLY

So Kelly is going to the Elimination Challenge, against whom?

Peter: BRAD

Chris doesn't understand the mindset of the red nomination. Kelly, meanwhile, is taking the nomination hard, making more friends on the Blue team.


For the challenge, you're going to use...

- Beretta Xtrema2 (Italy, 2004)

... but instead of shooting cans of soda, you'll be shooting clay pigeons. Helping out is Scott Robertson. Brad is technically the better shooter, but it's going to come down to who has the better throw of the clays.

In the challenge, both Kelly and Brad will throw clay pigeons and shoot them out of the air before they hit the ground up to five at a time. Most pigeons wins.

After round 1: tied at 1
After round 2: Brad leads, 3-2.
After round 3: Brad leads, 4-3.
After round 4: Kelly leads, 6-5.
After round 5: Kelly has two more for 8. Brad needs four to win... He has... two. Not enough. Kelly wins, and Brad Engmann, for being the best shot in this challenge, has taken his last shot.

Down to nine. Things get relatively low-tech next time.
