Top Shot Season 4 competitor Chris Cheng re-visits Episode 9: "The Longest Shot" to discuss the longest shot ever on Top Shot, 1500 yards with a sniper rifle, the epic 1860 Henry Rifle elimination (closest elimination challenge ever!), and other general questions.
This was filmed at Google in Mountain View, CA where Chris works, and the recap was open to all Googlers. Online questions were fielded from https://www.google.com/moderator/?aut...
