Leading the cast of exhibition shooters is legendary performer Tom Knapp, the dean of exhibition shooters. His teammate is actor Cole Hauser (Good Will Hunting, The Break Up, and numerous feature films). Shotgunning guru Tim Bradley joined veteran actor and shooter Gerald McRaney (Simon & Simon, Major Dad, Deadwood) as yet another tandem in this three-team ensemble.
