    :confused:

    Because they are carrying the products produced by the morons on the show?

    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, I watched the first couple of episodes and quickly became disgusted with it. Same for the show American Guns. Dude spent over $15,000 on a blinged out 1911 for his wife as an anniversary present. Makes me sick that these shows portray gun owners in that manner.

    Dillinger, I am sure glad you said that because this is exactly what I think. The show can be entertaining but it is unrealistic as far as depicting the average American gunowner. Most of us couldn't afford the guns and ammo they use on the show. I am a real gun enthusiast but I don't believe in waving my guns around.

    That is exactly why. Tossing in with those idiots on a faked up drama show which portrays gunowners as morons boggles my mind.

    Soon as i get a grip on my thoughts and dont come off as a cranked off nut im gonna send em a email

    I think that is how most of the people on this board, and the people we interact with, feel.

    Sure. It's cool that a guy can buy a decommissioned 20mm machine gun and pay thru the nose to import it, then license it and then have it re-built into a working model. But that guy represents .0000000001% of the gun owners out there and I am sure the rest of the population can probably out shoot him. :cool:

    I think show is really in poor taste from the aspect of being over the top, completely cartoonish in what a "gun owner" would want to do with their arsenal short of winning the lottery.

    Don't get me wrong, the people that go to the shop have married well or worked hard to attain a small fortune and want toys. That's great. I don't care how they spend their money.

    But by the same token I don't want what they do with their cash to represent me and what I do with mine to the masses.

    Just because a hollywood starlet becomes a coke whore and a train wreck doesn't mean that all actors/actresses are like that, right?

    I think it's more in your face with this subject just merely because there is so much ignorance about the firearms in question and the community that holds them.

    Just google "barrel shroud interview" to get an accurate representation of how the Left is "informed" about what we own.

    It's not pretty and this show is going to educate people in the WRONG way about us.

    YMMV - but I hope not. :eek:

    I saw that barrel shroud interview, along with the heat seeking bullets interview and the unloaded guns kill people interview. My.02 to the anti gunners below...

    I think the biggest joke about the show is that they are always reinventing the wheel and think that they are the first ones ever to do it like the time they put a shotgun under a m 4 or the time mounted a m240 onto a helicopter last time I look the military did those things over 30 years ago or there opening statement that they say you will go to jail if you try this at home no jackass all I need do to is get an ffl and follow all the laws they set forth

    It sure would be nice if law makers were forced to do some fact-checking before introducing a bill. "Legislating while ignorant" should be a crime.

    Ignorance isn't limited to legislators, though. The SCOTUS upheld NFA out of ignorance and folks have been paying through the nose +$200 tax stamp ever since.

    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...:confused:

    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.

    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.

    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

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


    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.
