California native competitive shooter and Top Shot Champion Chris Cheng has the marksmanship skills to pay the bills– and he is apparently musically inclined to boot.
Cheng, winner of season four of the History Channel’s Top Shot competitive shooting show is a pretty complex guy off the range. Holding an MA from the Monterey Institute of International Studies (where he specialized in conflict resolution and international negotiations), he spent a half-decade working for Google, is a baritone with the San Francisco Symphony Chorus and sits on the board of the San Francisco Opera.
With that being said, he does a good rendition above of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” 9th Symphony, a staple of Warner Brother’s cartoons and action films everywhere.
His Musical Target System consists of a custom Volquartsen Superlite rifle, Leupold optics and Winchester ammo.
However, if more traditional fare is your game, he also recently covered “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”
“Mary Had a Little Lamb,” for the kiddies:
And the “Marine Corps Hymn” for the Devil Dogs out there:
We wonder if he takes requests? Maybe some Skynyrd…
