LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Zavalla native Dustin Ellermann continued to show that when it comes to guns, he is tough to beat, winning an individual competition to advance another week in the History Channel's "Top Shot" competition.

Ellermann won a target competition with a Macmillan Tac-50 rifle, hitting his moving target from 500 yards away in eight seconds.

Ellermann only needed to place in the top four to advance to the next episode.

A packed house watched the episode at a watch party hosted by KTRE at Buffalo Wild Wings in Lufkin.
