The puke announcer talking about how guns almost wiped out the Bison. These scumbag NBC announcers need to jump off a cliff like lemmings.

I don't think they really meant it as an anti-gun thing they were just saying how cool the one guy's gun is

when they have to wait before going because they got beat in the last race, do they have individual clocks timing them? so could the guy who just waited 29 seconds still finish in a shorter time than the first guy out? Is it just to give the previous winner some space? And are those rifles .22LR or something else?

Announcer just said "the ammunition is live". Well duh. How many people thought they were using blanks?

No, No they're using blanks. You're on your honor as to whether you hit the target![:D] The announcer made it seem as if it was some kind of revelation or something!

They are 22 LR rifles.

You trust too much. They could have said something like: "The lever action rifle was instrumental in settling the American West. They provided freedom and the American way of life we love today." What does exterminating bison have to do with guns? If they did not have guns, they would have stampeded them into spears or found another way to kill them. The gun was only one tool. What about the horses they rode? During the summer equestrian events you don't hear talk of how horses were used to slaughter bison. They are evil anti-gun bastards! Period!
