That would be nice but I guess it's just too much work for them, I mean, they have to determine whether or not pizza is a vegetable so they have their hands full at the moment...

People should be more compassionate; Pizza's feelings might be hurt by such language. The proper term is "persistant vegetative state", not simply "vegetable".

Those shows don't represent the average gun owner, but I still think those shows are good for gun rights. It lets the average person see that not everyone that owns a gun is a serial killer, drug dealer, or paranoid militant. When you look at all the "reality" shows out there, I think those shows definitely make gun owners look better than many other groups that are represented in other shows. Notice you don't see crack heads and whores walking into those shops to buy guns.

I think many of the reality shows now are helping to demystify guns for a lot of people that have never handled them. I've really been amazed by the number of people that I hear saying positive things about guns and even hunting because of shows like those mentioned and other shows like pawn stars and swamp people. I just wish safety was stressed a little more. I do worry about those same people when they start thinking about buying a gun.

If so, I am in your camp. I think that show is COMPLETELY the wrong face to be putting on the "gun owners" of America and is, instead, a shinning example of too much money and crazy, over the top ridiculiousness.

When a lead into the show has the following dialogue; "My husband got me this .50 cal Desert Eagle but I don't like shooting it because of the recoil" and the resulting "fix" was fabricate a stock to make it a short barreled rifle, you have officially reached the "douchebag, look at how dumb we can be" stage.

That show is going to go a long ways towards ruining the image of responsible and "sane" gun ownership.

i agree too. if people think this is what the average gunowner is like, then they are more a liability than an asset to our cause. i'm curious, what husband buys a 50 AE Desert Eagle for his wife? let me rephrase that, what idiot buys a 50 DE for his wife? then on top of that, through some slick editing, they try to make out like the daughter test-fired that pistol, when if you slow motion it, it wasn't even the 50 DE! so if through editing and false claims and stupid s&%t, they are not doing us any favors.

Both of those shows aggravate me. Those shows along w/ those bump fire stocks portray a horrible picture and have been set backs.

Have any of you watched those hog hunting shows w/ the girls or the old man and his kids? More BS brought to you via the TV.

even gary says no



im suprised their dogs dont look like their owner



they got another one now called lady hoggers. features two women with FF sized fake boobs chasing pigs.

all the fake drama is nauseating.

there is no way they can really make a business off of catching one or two hogs a day lol

What time does it come on?
What is there not to like about two women with FF sized fake boobs chasing pigs? It's like mud wrestling but better.

There is nothing real about any of the "reality" shows out there. Do a little research on Gold Rush or whatever it's called. All of the shows add a lot of BS to create drama. I know I'm in the minority on this one, but I still think those shows are a net gain for gun owners. The alternative would be all of the truly fictional shows that always portray gun owners as either bad guys, military, or cops. Normal fictional TV shows make it seem as though only bad guys or highly trained government employees who's job it is to protect us have guns. Normal TV never even mentions that there are regular people that have guns. These shows show that a large variety of people have guns, and that guns aren't so dangerous that only specially trained government employees are the ones that should have them.
