"Sniper: The Ultimate Competition" on the History Channel

Premieres tonight (25 Jul 18), I thought this might be of interest to some in this forum:

I've got it set to DVR. I'm spending the evening in my shop drinking 6 group tightners. It's usually a pretty good match. My partner and I won it in '92. Goddamn that was a long time ago.

The coasties had the lead at one point!? Wow.

Also the 10th MTN guy with the amputated leg was awesome. What a great example of overcoming adversity. Guys like him are the epitome of having a warrior spirit IMO.

The Puddle Pirates actually have a decent program. Or at least did back when I was still in the game. I'm just a tad "dated".

Interesting show, as a non sniper guy, I do have a question on the final stalk. Is there a minimum/maximum distance where you can make the final shot? It seems some teams got spotted in a median range of where others were making a shot. Do you then line up a shot and call for a judge?

One of the biggest surprises to me was that one of the NG guys didn't know how to go through the obstacle course using WEAVER for the KIMS section.
