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 Firearm Accessories 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.

Perfect for fans of Elle Kennedy's Off-Campus and Briar U hockey series or Meghan Quinn's Brentwood Boys baseball series. ADAM 'VAN' VANDENBERG It all started one drunken night when she was a sweet and innocent freshman and I was a cocky, overconfident sophomore. I've never forgotten the night we spent together, but life is complicated and I let it get in the way. But the universe has thrown us back together and now that I'm newly single, I can't stop thinking about her. So it's a damn shame my dream girl wants absolutely nothing to do with me. I'm determined to shoot my shot one last time though. And this time, I'm shooting to win. STELLA LECROY I swear the universe is trying to punish me. Why else would my man-eating cousin who betrayed me in the most hurtful of ways end up at Pierson University with me? Or why I'd be forced to spend time with the one boy I can't stand the sight of? Not that looking at him is a hardship. He's a charming, ripped and insanely hot basketball player. But being around him brings back memories of that night—one that turned me into the worst kind of girl. Only now that we have to co-exist, I'm having a hard time reconciling the nefarious guy I thought he was back then with the sweet, attentive, selfless one in front of me. Did I really get him so wrong? Or is he just that good at playing the game?

An aged Western showman reflects over his long and colorful career Few bother to separate the myth of Colonel Hugh Cardiff from his real life. The nation knows him as a sharpshooter, buffalo hunter, moving pictures pioneer, and one-time proprietor of the greatest Wild West show the nation has ever seen. Some of the stories are true, some exaggerated, and some rank among the wildest of tall tales. But for a man who has lived like Colonel Cardiff, the facts trump the myth. In the spring of 1868, Denver is the richest, wildest city west of the Mississippi. When an overweight Easterner named Dr. Bogardus rolls into town to announce a shooting contest with a $1,000 prize, ears prick up. Young Hugh wins the shoot with an ancient muzzle-loading rifle, knocking glass balls out of the air and missing only four out of one hundred targets. He is famous at nineteen, and the Colonel’s wild life is just getting started.
