I'll check it out. I'm afraid of the potential "black eye" this could give gun owners. There's been a lot of "reality" shows that cut and stage to accentuate drama and dangerous activity, and I can see the tv show amping up the stereotypical "hill billy" with a gun angle.

"Yeehaw! Hold ma beer while I mag dump this drum in the air..."
Etc.

On the positive side, Red Stick has done some phenominal work, and they are one of the best at what they do.

I already hate the owner & I haven't even seen the show.

The commercial where they are showing the shop and just before you may see something interesting the owner comes out and says something to the effect of " you have to be an employee to see in here" and blocks the camera.

I think i may have to pass on this.

Plus my feeling that it is going to be another SCRIPTED reality show that are all the rage days (i.e. Storage Wars, Gold Rush Alaska http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showpost.php?p=12421386&postcount=179 etc.)
