Exactly! Which is why I don't bother with any of these so-called "reality" shows.

As for the price, the pastor got f***ed royally. I paid $295 for a Mossberg 590 (on sale at Big 5) which will do very nicely for any kind of home defense. I don't need some tricked out piece of crap to do that.

None of us need a $1700 shotgun, we all know that a $400 one will do the same job.

Just like none of us need a $2000 1911 when we all know that a $700 one will do the same job..... except there are quite a few of us who have spent 2k+ on a 1911.

How is this any different? I haven't seen the episode but it seems like the same argument.

I agree, but even a tricked out piece of crap shouldn't have cost 1700 on top of the gun!

Wilson Combat will do a very similar package for $230, according to the website.

I have only watched the show about twice I think. But it is a lot better than some of the other totaly retarded shows out there. It least there is no one named Kardashian on it! I am glad someone is finally trying to cater to people like us.

Maybe it draws more interest, but I can't help but wonder if it doesn't actually do a disservice by discouraging viewers who might have their interest in weapons piqued by the show but be discouraged by the cost. I.E., 'I would really like to have a shotgun but I could never justify $1700 for one. I had no idea they were that expensive!'

Yeah he quoted him at $1700 and I changed the channel. The guy was a dummy for getting rid of his rifle too. It's all rubbish.

Yeah there nothing that he did to that 870 that most people that own them couldn't do themselves. Anyone can just change gun parts
