WE HAVE VIRTUALLY EVERYTHING YOU NEED! CAMPING HUNTING BOATING FLOATING SWIMMING DAN DEE 8ALE800 show set up in a gun shop produces quite high ratings nowadays. This whole idea would have been unheard of 20 years ago, so, before I start pointing out the strange aspects of these shows, let me tell you that I am not dis- appointed in the simple existence of them. Any media that show fire- arms in a favorable light simply can't be a bad thing. The History Channel has a pretty long track record of showing firearms and their use in a historical context without actually being pro- or anti-gun, t am bothered by the inaccuracies that seem to always accompany these episodes but be- fore I let my frustration get the bet- ter of me, I try to stop and remem- ber that they should get immense credit for trying. Their recent pro- gramming is even pro-gun with firearms and their related products being prominently featured and are also sponsors. "Top Shot" is one of the best family shows extant for gun-friendly households. I remember one host. who is a former Navy Seal. telling (I should Concealed Handgun License Class Held locally in Sweet Home.

Then, I believe it was the next week, the same said soldiers needed an H-K carbine in 6.8 SPC (special purpose car- tridge) because the .223/5.56mm was completely ineffective. Jeez! It's bad enough when regular TV shows and movies mess things up entirely but when "experts" do it it's ridiculous. Where do they find these "experts" anyway? One southern gun shop owner is a former military man. which I respect him for. His tough guy, cool quote demeanor really turns me off. however. I can't stand the egos of people who have to always be reminding you of how tough they are. His "tacticool" say- ings become quite annoying rather quickly. This "gunsmith" is constantly claiming to be coming up with "new" ideas or products that have not been done before. So far, the only things I've seen him or his shop do thal haven't been done already, haven't been done before for a reason. At the prices they be retired in short order. Maybe he'll just take more trips out to blow things up instead? The po- lice departments and "government agencies" he deals with must have a lot deeper pockets than the ones around here. Another gun shop owner/gun- smith from the West is a former police officer. He has finally found a TV show with some staying power. Having been on a couple of other short-lived shows, the new one seems to be here to stay. Part of the reason might be his teen- age daughter? My daughters will not be hanging around my shop (or anywhere else for that matter) dressed like that. His wife is attired similarly. This guy flies out to look at gun collections worth tens of thou- sands of dollars in a helicopter. He states blatantly that he does it to show off. If you show up to buy my gun collection in a helicopter. I'm going to assume you are not go- ing to pay me top dollar as you are wasting thousands on your trans- portation. The the seller is offered half of what they are asking which brings on the dramatic "negotia- tions." If I were to offer someone half of the value of their firearms. I think we would also have heated negotiations, but I doubt I would be leaving with newly acquired firearms, My favorite shows are the ones in which someone comes in to the shop looking for a nice and/ or collectible weapon of some kind. Somehow .they talk the cus- tomer into having a hand-made version commissioned for $10.000 to $20.000 instead of getting the original for two to five grand.
