A Zavalla man competing on a national marksman competition has advanced another week after his team won its competition in "Top Shot."

Dustin Ellermann's blue team won a target competition involving a Benelli shotgun. Ellermann hit his target nine out of 10 times.

Ellermann's third episode was much easier than Episode 2, where he was voted into an elimination matchup. Ellermann avoided elimination by beating Sara Ahrens in a Smith & Wesson M&P .45 competition.

Drew Shprintz was eliminated in this week's episode.

Episode 4 airs Aug. 30 at 9 p.m. on The History Channel.
