‘Top Shot’ Seeks America’s No. 1 Marksman

are-you-americas-top-shotApparently history just isn’t enough for The History Channel anymore. It’s venturing into the reality show world with a bang. Albeit a bit delayed (didn’t this whole “reality” trend start back in early ’00?), Top Shot promises to give gun enthusiasts a 10-episode fill of competition-fueled fun.

So, what will shooters compete for? Well, money, of course. Like every reality show ever, there will be a cash prize — $100,000 to be exact — as well as a chance to break a world record.

From the producers of Dirty Jobs and The Ultimate Fighter, the new show will challenge opponents by having them recreate famous shots like William Tell’s apple-on-head assault or Annie Oakley’s playing card trick.

Due out in 2010, Top Shot has already begun its search for someone with “mind-blowing shooting skills and a big personality.”

If you actually are interested (and have unmatched mad shooting skillz), e-mail TopShotCasting@gmail.com with your name, city/state, phone number, a recent photo of yourself, and a brief explanation of why you should be on the show by is Jan. 18. Or, check out the official casting call page here.

In the meantime, you’d better brush up on legendary marksmen, starting with William Tell.
