After catching a few scenes of this show at a friend's house, I was impressed enough to roll the dice and purchase the first season from Amazon. Halfway through the episodes, it became pretty obvious that the show relies heavily on the ignorance of its audience, going so far in a few cases as to actively try to deceive those who may not know any better. I'm thinking in particular of the now infamous scene where Stephanie Hayden, daughter of Will and general manager of Red Jacket, is shown "firing" a .50 Desert Eagle at the shop's indoor range. The camera, however, never shows Stephanie actually firing the weapon, but rather cuts away to show the target, now with several small, tidy holes. Later, when a buttstock is affixed to the DE and fired again at the same range, it punches ragged holes in the target roughly twice the size of those put there by Stephanie. The consensus is that while Stephanie was shown firing the DE, she was actually firing a much smaller 9mm off camera, probably to spare her the embarassment of the DE's enormous recoil. The show had an opportunity to be honest and self-deprecating at this point, but opted not to in favor of keeping Red Jacket's staff, and Hayden's daughter in particular, on the pedestal of special expertise. Other examples of this dishonesty are in episode 1 when Joe is shown "firing" a Saiga (yet no recoil is observed and no shell casing is ejected from the weapon), and in episode 5 of season 2 when the staff fire High Explosive grenades from a grenade launcher, but no HE rounds were actually used and the targets were instead rigged to explode, a staple of the show.Read more ›

The show was great first couple of seasons , it was kind of neat learning about firearms, then with more and more drama as the seasons went on it got to the point where it was who's gonna have an attitude and what or who is will going to be pissed at or angry about this week. Kinda lost their humble beginnings and lost it's viewing appeal. To bad I really had high hopes for the show.

The producers seem to think that more people will watch it if there is more drama. I just want to see them build cool guns and blow things up.

If you like guns then you will like this show. All reruns but if you haven't seen them it doesn't matter. Also you don't have to watch all those commercials.

The concept of this show is interesting. It was interesting to see the historic weapons on this show and to see them test fire the weapons.

I find it hard to justify watching a pedophile. Find something else to watch and let the bastard rot in jail.

Not sure how any business can be successful with it being ran the way they portray the "owner" managing his employees. I guess that is the magic of TV.
