A surprising journey from tech support to professional marksman in front of the cameras.
Chris Cheng won the title of “Top Shot,” a $100,000 cash prize, and a professional marksman contract with the show sponsor, Bass Pro Shops. How did a tech support guy who didn't shoot a lot of guns beat out seventeen other competitors–including seasoned military veterans, law enforcement officers, and pro marksmen–in History Channel's Top Shot season 4?
An excellent guide for beginning shooters, Cheng focuses on the basics and ammunition of pistols, rifles, and shotguns, marksmanship fundamentals, and buying a firearm. Other chapters include:
Dry Fire Practice
Safely Storing Your Firearm
Cleaning and Maintaining Your Guns
And much more!
Additionally, Cheng covers his approach to staying calm under pressure, teamwork, sportsmanship, and leadership. These traits contributed to his coming out on top and staying above the fray.
With a foreword written by Top Shot season 3 champion Dustin Ellermann and an afterword written by the original Top Shot champion Iain Harrison, Shoot to Win is sure to please shooters of all stripes, but especially fans of History Channel's program Top Shot.
