Default Guntucky(show) is terrible.......

I'm going to go on a bit of a rant here so sorry if you don't approve. The newest "reality" TV show based around firearms is CMT's "Guntucky". I for one think this show is a disgrace to the firearm/shooting sports community and should be taken off of CMT. Here is a list of reasons why Guntucky is so bad.
1. It makes the gun culture look bad. The employees (?) on the show are ,for lack of a better word, Stupid. They refer to rounds as "bullets", allow one man to fire a side-folder AK with the stock unfolde d and the scope right up on his face which is unsafe and makes the guy look idiotic.
2. In the first episode they COMPLETELY rip off a woman who brings in an antique target rifle. They aren't sure as to its caliber or model at first, but they don't even offer to research the gun and it's price before the purchase. She pays the around $225 if I remember correctly. They find out that the gun is worth $2, 000 a bit later..........
3. They portray gun owners as illiterate hillbillies/rednecks.
4. They are unsafe. They put cameramen in front of muzzles and such.
4. It's fake. Most of the shots are rigged. (E.g.) Hitting dead center of a wine glass pyramid with an 1800's cane gun...
5. Improper firearms terminology. You would expect gun store employees to use correct terminology in order to look knowledgeable about their business......
6. The drama. The first instance of the drama occurs in the 2nd episode when the store/range owner (?) takes his daughter's boyfriend on a trip to the woods to "learn" about firearms. This is about how it went.
Pt.1 "Hey boy listen here we gunna cross that there stream". The boyfriend crosses and falls after he does so.
Pt.2 " This is how ya load da shotgun." "Ya take the bullet (SHELL) and put it in here and ram this thing up (talking about the pump/fore end)"
Pt.3 "Hey boy look et dat tree right cher(points to a tree top)" " you see dat bird???(they don't say what kind of bird so who knows what their shooting)" "Yes sir" "yer gunna put the bead on it 'n shoot ok" "k"
Pt.4 Boyfriend pulls the trigger and....."Click".....of course his shotgun doesn't fire.
I'm not sure what happened after that because I got fed up with its sheer stupidity and. Changed the channel. Well there was my rant on this new "show" Guntucky........ If you agree with me or disagree with me post a comment either way. -------DesertFox

It's definitely a real work of s//t. Seen a few minutes of the show. Watching paint dry is more interesting than watching fellow Kentucky residents make fools of themselves.
I have been to KC a few time as it is only 20 minutes away. Never been impressed with their employees.

I visit knob creek every now and then, it's a very nice range, but this show is terrible, the acting sucks and it's just dumb.

Makes us look like hillbillies and I refuse to watch one more episode. Sons of guns is bad, but it's not in my backyard, honestly this show is stupid to a level of being offensive.

There is nothing real about "reality" tv.

I'm actually going to knob creek next month, and if the subject comes up, you can bet I'll speak my mind, not that it'll matter... The money is what matters, that's what reality tv is all about.

No. I double posted. Sorry for the confusion. I appreciate your review. Imo reality television is screwing up this world. It is somewhat interesting to see what is out there (like ax men or ice road truckers) but the stupid acting, made up scenarios etc is just a joke. If you want to find what is I'm this world go look. Instead people do it from their couch.

I agree desertfox, I read this and decided to turn to CMT and that kid picks up a crossbow with a bolt in it and puts his finger on the dang trigger! And they bought a good 10-12 guns for $5500 and there were ARs, Mossbergs and a AUG I think, that's a darn good "deal", all staged, ticks me off. I've only seen about 5 minutes of it and I'm already fed up. This makes Sons of Guns look like the greatest show on the planet, and make American Guns look great! Goodness this is stupid

I have been to a gun store here that I took a firearm into and had it looked at and had it pointed at me without the employee checking the firearm. I know the gun was unloaded but still. A lot of place seem to act ignorant to safety...
