This is a good episode showing how they make a custom gun from a block of material. Interesting to see this process with the CNC mill included.

The comparison with Sons of Guns is inevitable.

I happened to love Sons of Guns, and after watching all those shows I was pleased to find something similar.

It's a gun shop; they build and restore unique guns for demanding customers, and you get a glimpse at the business strategy and drama behind it all.

This is like Sons of Guns, with different people and personalities, and a slightly different kind of customer (Coloradoans).

I happen to live in Colorado and happened to meet Rich a couple weeks ago - though at the time I didn't know he was the patriarch in a TV show! I found him to be polite and likeable, and after watching this show I like him even more.

Can't wait til I'm making the kind of money it takes to get these guys to build me some custom guns. :)

My only misgiving about this show is that the Discovery channel announced it's cancellation. Major letdown.

This is the best series on history of different weapons used during history. The show is very family focused showing the value of the work environment and not just giving them anything they want but working for it and did the job you were given bring value or cost the family business.

Take it from an NRA life member, this show is full of boobs (both real and fake). I've tried to get through an episode twice: the '60's icon one and the birthday gun episode. In the former episode, the son and father reveal their ignorance of the guns they are selling the even more ignorant real estate tycoon. Example: the son shmoozes the buyer in what he thinks is being clever as he misidentifies the M-14 as a "world war" gun (whatever that is) so that it is bought with the two vintage WWII rifles. Later in the show, the father comes up with the most idiotic design of "James Bonding" (that this other fool with more money than brains orders) by clamping a couple of Walther PPKs to the front of his car for about $10k.
And the birthday episode leads to a garish, incredibly tacky, vandalization of a perfectly good 1911 colt for the satisfaction of the questionable tastes of his boob-job wife.
This brings us to the most disturbing part of this family business: the father's creepy over-protectiveness of his daughter. Now imagine working in this hell-hole with precious daughter who can do no wrong and aforementioned softbrained son. And remember whatever competency and talent you show on the job will be lower on the totem pole than those two's most incompetent efforts. And the weirdest part is the daughter is often on "display" and this doesn't bother the father? Whatever's best for ratings, huh?
