My adventures climbing big mountains, scuba diving flooded cave systems and kayaking spectacular rivers around the world have been chronicled in such magazines as National Geographic Adventure, Men’s Journal, Men’s Fitness, , Esquire and literally hundreds of other publications. I’ve written 21 books; my Over The Edge: A Regular Guy’s Odyssey In Extreme Sports (released May, 2000, in paperback by Wilderness Press), prompted the Wall Street Journal to ask…”How did Michael Bane become the George Plimpton from hell?”

I’ve been involved with guns and shooting literally my entire life. Most recently, I conceived and still manage the five-year-old NSSF Media Education Program, which has had a profound effect on the relationship between the firearms industry and the media. It also bought together the perhaps greatest group of firearms instructors of all stripes ever. That “critical mass” of instructors has been redefining handgun instruction, and I’m proud to have had a small part in that. I was part of the 3-person team who handled national media during the Maryland sniper crisis, which as emerged as a textbook example for the industry in dealing with flashfires. I’ve also handled crisis stuff for IPSC and USPSA. we’re currently working directly with major companies on setting up their own media events and training their people to deal with media crises.

Show #32  -  Interview with Iain Harrison, winner of the first season of the History Channels Top Shot

Harrison was born in the United Kingdom. He served as a recce platoon commander for the British Army. He moved to the United States and started working as a construction manager in Sherwood, Oregon after being forced to surrender his guns to the UK government, while pursuing competitive shooting.[1]

Top Shot

In 2010, Harrison appeared in the first season of History Channel's marksmen competition Top Shot. During the first half of the competition, Harrison competed as part of the Blue Team. His team ended up winning six challenges, and Harrison was only nominated for elimination once during that period. During the final half of the competition, Harrison won the last two individual challenges before the final. In the finale, he beat Chris Cerino to win the competition as well as $100,000.

Harrison has since made three appearances on the show as a weapons trainer. His first appearance after winning was on the tenth episode of the second season of the show. During one episode of the third season of the show, Harrison appeared with Season 2 winner, Chris Reed, serving as honorary team captains of the two current Blue and Red teams for one of the challenges. A $5,000 donation was made to a charity selected by the captain of the winning team, and Harrison chose the Wounded Warrior Project. However, his team lost to Chris Reed's Red team. He appeared again as a trainer during the fourth season.

In this interview, we discuss: 

  • Iain's background and childhood
  • His military service
  • His move to the U.S., and what drove that
  • Initial years training and competing
  • The call to Top Shot and his selection
  • Behind the scenes at Top Shot
