Red Team takes aim with an AK-47 on 'Top Shot'Want shooting without all of that boring dialogue and plot getting in your way? 'Top Shot' (Tuesdays, 10PM on History) is your show. For the uninitiated, 'Top Shot' is a marksman competition that tests its pre-selected crew of shooters with different weapons every week. Tuesday, it was the AK-47 assault rifle.

Two teams, the Red Team and the Blue Team, had their marksmen shooting at targets at varying distances while their teammates ran an obstacle course. The Blues took an early lead, hitting their first two targets on the first shot. Then the Blue team hit their 50-yard targets and the Red team hit their 75-yard targets.

Then the Reds pulled away. Their last shooter was on his way through the obstacle course as the last two Blues were still shooting. If it's any consolation, at least the exploding mortars were pretty.
