‘Top Shot’ to Feature NSSF’s Ryan Cleckner


Ryan Cleckner, NSSF’s government relations manager, will be the featured expert on History Channel’s “Top Shot” tonight.

Cleckner served as a sniper in the U.S. Army’s 1st Ranger Battalion during multiple combat deployments. He is also a sniper instructor and competitive shooter.

Tonight’s episode is titled “The 1,000-yard Shot.”

Here is the description from the show’s website: “Marksmen face a supreme long-range test, the iconic 1000-yard shot. They will use the biggest gun ever used in Top Shot competition — a Barrett 82A1 .50. Teams dissolve and it is every marksmen for himself.”

“Top Shot” airs at 10/9 central on History Channel.
