What these EXTREME MARKSMEN can do with a gun (or bow) is simply stunning. In this amazing sequel to the hugely popular Sharp Shooters program, THE HISTORY CHANNEL™ has brought together some of the most accomplished shooters in the world to demonstrate their awesome talents.
Demonstrating uncanny skill and rock-steady hands, these "shootists" reproduce the most legendary shots from history and fiction. See them sever a hangman's noose, split an arrow with an arrow like Robin Hood, thread a bullet through a washer in mid-air, and hit an enemy target over a half a mile away. And see one bold gunman take on the toughest trick shot ever devised, the mirror shot.
Throughout EXTREME MARKSMEN computer animations and super slow-motion break down exactly what is happening in action that is far too quick for the human eye.
Follow a bullet on its long trajectory to a target; see the intricate dance of technology and skill in the split second after the trigger is pulled; and watch as an old-fashioned shooting gallery gets lit up by live ammunition!
This excellent DVD of EXTREME MARKSMEN is squarely in your sights, now pull the trigger!
