The most important thing to remember is that it's a TV show. 9 times out of 10 if it's on TV it's there for entertainment. Thanks for posting the link guys.

Considering the talents of dumb, dumber, dumbest and curly joe in the basement, i suspect it all they could do just to swap out some parts.

So I guess this busts the myth of "you get what you pay for". Some times you just get f##ked.

Who would of guessed the author was here I found the link on gunway and didn't know you were a part of the forum. Small community.

I'd say "author was here" is a bit of a stretch. I'm definitely a pretty scarce accessory to FirearmsTalk but I get by and watch the banter when I get a chance to every now and then. Watching the comments on different forums about how I got screwed has been pretty entertaining this morning.

from the Haus quotations.

I like that part about him doing his homework.
I was also concerned that they just tossed out the original furniture and such from the beat-up 870. My favorite shotgun is my battered, old, second-hand Mossberg 500; when i changed out some parts to make it more in-house-friendly, i kept the original weathered furniture in the event that i may replace it as my HD shotty and want to display it ratrod style. To me, there is something cool about a working man's shotgun that is so old and so used that the blueing has worn off and the barrel has lost its sight bead.

I don't just LOVE the show, but it is great in comparison to some other firearms-themed "reality" TV shows. Less drama, more Llama.

Having spent some time shop ratting in a working gunshop I can't watch any of these reality shows about it. The prices are always outlandish and the projects are like they are right out of an episode of Tacticool Mall Ninja Quartlery.

The report ebbs did was a great read though and really went in depth why what we see has us all rolling our eyes, the guys doing it are rolling their eyes too... LOL

Many thanks to ebbs for popping in and enlightening us!
