The two shooting icons spent time at an outdoor range, showing off their skills with Ermey's classic 1873 Winchester, lever-action rifle -- "the gun that won the West" according to Ermey.

After a brief interview, sharing Weiss' history and her sharpshooting accomplishments, Ermey asked to see her skills with the almost 150-year-old Winchester.

Weiss grabbed the rifle and proceeded to easily take out the small, paint-filled glass balls on the range.

A high-speed, 4K camera also delivered some amazing, slow-motion images of the bullet leaving the rifle, striking and destroying the target.

After taking out a few targets, Weiss handed the Winchester to Ermey and the retired Marine duplicated her work.

Before the segment ended, Weiss offered to show "Sgt. Gunny" one of her most famous moves, the "Pilates shot."
