Christian Counselor is Self-Taught 'Top Shot'

Ad Feedback

The History Channel's "Top Shot" reality series features Navy SEALs, U.S. Army veterans, and former FBA agents and law enforcement officers as competitors.

Each week, 18 superior marksmen compete for $100,000 and the "bragging rights" to the title of "Top Shot."

The winner of season three's strenuous shooting competition wasn't a shooter by trade. Twenty-eight-year-old Dustin Ellermann is a counselor at Camp His Way Christian summer camp in Zevalla, Texas, and is a self-taught marksman.

With the exception of a two-day pistol course, Ellermann taught himself everything he knows about weapons.

He says its "pretty neat how God can give glory to his name through something as silly as shooting."

The fourth season of "Top Shot" begins Feb. 14. Check local listings.
