Main Topic: Gun Reality Shows We talk about what we like and dislike about these shows and if we think they are good for the firearms community.
American Guns: Get it on Amazon
Pink Pistol Shopping Pros: Zack: I was able to take part a little bit (we sent them the spade grip for the punt gun) The gunsmiths are cool. Hank: Hot mom...I like the “family” aspect of the business. Jake: Little less crazy, Rich is more personable than Will
Cons: Zack: WAYY too much $$$ for all the guns.. seem to rip people off. Rich lets his daughter flash her boobs. Hank: CRAZY prices pulled out of thin air... Jake: Minor daughter shows too much skin ;)
Overall thoughts: Zack: Kinda lame show other then the girl eye candy but that can be had anywhere. Hank: Get to see some nice collections, but already tired of gunsmith drama... Jake: Has good overall value, they still do pretty crazy stuff. Historian segments are Great.
Top Shot: Get it on Amazon
Pros: Zack: Most exciting gun show to date, very relatable. Hank: GREAT show...shows all walks of life...has some excitement. Jake: Regular people from all walks of life compete. Not much Drama for a reality show
Cons: Zack: Every season is kinda the same.. no real revolution. Hank: a lot of redundancy...too long of a wait in-between shows Jake: Some shows are a little slow for me. Needs more episodes per season.
Overall thoughts: Zack: Best gun show for the industry. Hank: Best promotional show for the shooting enthusiasts and those thinking about getting into it. Looks like safety is taken as the #1 priority as it should be. Jake: Great value to the shooting community. Gets new people into buying guns, getting training and shooting.
Sons of Guns: Get it on AmazonPlaying for Uncle TedUncle Ted Carry Guns and Glock 18 with Lone Wolf Threaded barrel. Pros: Zack: Entertains normal people Hank: Entertaining and can help promote the sport Jake: Gets regular people into guns
Cons: Zack: So they lose an FFL and now we give them a show? Annoying cast, stupid builds Hank: Drama, “casting and scripting” and stupid explosions on everything they shoot. Jake: Crazy unsafe gun handling. Will seems to be a complete *&$hole as a boss.
Overall thoughts: Zack: Sure it gets people watching but honestly it paints us in a bad light. Hank: Helps reinforce the stereotype of people from the south.... Jake: I’m not sure this show does enough positive for the community to be on the air...
