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
  • His victory and life after Top Shot
  • And much more!

There was some discussion regarding female dressing around the gun. The lady on this Youtube Channel has some videos that are (at least what I have seen) were tastefully done. I referred a lady I know to her channel and she thought it was very good. https://www.youtube.com/user/faliaphotography
