I knew Michael was going down to Cliff when I saw at the actual contest he abandoned the exact grip he practiced so well with Jerry's coaching. Instead he sees the hitching rail and thinks, "Hey I got a better idea!" Then Cliff proceeded to grip as he practiced and did much better. Cliff is very methodical.
I loved Michael's statement about "I nominated Cliff because he is just a revolver guy." This not long after Cliff cleaned the course with the VLTOR AR15 and "Long Gun" Michael did not. And a few episodes before Cliff had aced the course with a Glock.
I would have liked to see how Cliff would have done on the third round of blind shooting the water jugs.
