Default AMERICAN GUNS last night....

Not thrilled with that episode.

Building the Scout Rifle for the soldier wounded in Iraq was great. AWESOME!

However...mounting the pair of Walther PPK/S pistols on the front bumper of the "James Bond" car was pure asshattery!

Number one...you now have TWO loaded pistols pointing at everyone and everything the car points at! Unless I am wrong (and let us just save time and assume I am NOT wrong)...that not only breaks the cardinal rule of gun safety, keeping the muzzle pointing in a safe direction, BUT...it is also ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON just by virtue of being a weapon pointed AT any person who happens to walk by the front of the vehicle! BY THE WAY....that's still a felony in any jurisdiction I know about.

I can't see ANY justification for this kind of foolishness. Oh boy....I want to have it for a "car show"....BFD! If you want to "James Bond" your ride....do it with NON-FIRING replicas.

If I was the officer that pulled this asshat over, you can best believe I would be arresting this guy...and I am the MOST PRO SECOND AMMENDMENT cop I have ever met. If I happened to walk in front of that car unbeknownst to me that there were not one but two, TWO mind ya, loaded guns (capable of being fired from the passenger compartment no less) pointed at ME...It would be ALL THE WAY OVER.

Rich Wyatt....cool...groovy...you have a great gun shop, but as a former cop YOU FREAKIN' WELL OUGHT TO KNOW BETTER!

UGH!

I did not see the show but from your description, the car sounds like an all around BAD idea...

Agree on all points! And the guns they DID put on the car? PPK's? Really?
They did a great job with the rifle for the wounded vet, though. I'm surprised they didn't give it to him though. They only said they didn't make much money on it.

from what i have seen from this new fad of "Reality gun show" i am NOT IMPRESSED....I LOVE the guns, i love the shooting but by in large its STUPIDITY at its finest and NOT a good image of your normal run of the mill gun nut.

Its fluff and flash, that why they have the blond girls packed into sausage casings as "characters". (not that i am against relatively hot chicks packed into sausage casings mind you)

Agreed, I saw one episode and that was enough for me. It's back to the Outdoor channel for me.

That's what late night HBO and Showtime channels are for gentlemen.

I liked the scout rifle and I agree that the guns on the car are nothing but bad...bad...bad!!!

I wanted paintball guns mounted on my vehicle with the black balls with colored paint in them for drivers who cut me off. But soap washes off...bullets do not!
