Weekly Video: Top Shot: Primitive Weapons

I thought this week I'd bring to you a bit of history.  This is TOP SHOT, if you've ever watched it, its a show on History Channel where contestants have to use varying weapons and hit their marks to win. This clip is from the episode where primitive weapons were used. It gives you an idea of what weapons were used, how they were used and how difficult it was to actually master these weapons.

Enjoy!

Love Top Shot! These Ladies and Gentlemen are masters at their craft. Thanks for posting and sharing with those that don't watch our versions of "reality" TV!

My middle son has recently taken up making bows and arrows in the traditional Native American style. It has given me a whole new appreciation for the art and craft behind these weapons.
