    Did anyone else catch this abortion of a reality show Sunday night? These guys run a gun shop in the Fayetteville, NC area. They were standing guard in front of the store with AR's, AK's, etc. while they unlocked the doors in the morning???

    Some moron comes into the shop wanting to sell a Colt Diamondback .22lr that was incorrectly marked .22 magnum at the factory. He said that Colt had offered to buy the gun for $30k and that this was the least amount of money that he would accept. The owner offers him "$17,500 cash, right now, on the spot." The seller declines.

    Now, I am not a genius, but there is a mismarked Diamondback on gunbroker right now for $5k....seller is in Fayetteville.

    What are the odds that two of those are in Fayetteville? It was some of the most horrible acting ever displayed on a "reality show."

    It's bad!

    The drama between employees appears to be completely fabricated. The customer interactions are laughable.

    On a side note, unless that shoot house was multi-story, they don't know how to shoot either.

    Never expect too much from a 'reality' show. 'Reality' is going to be boring to watch unless they artificially crank up the drama.

    Trust me, it's VERY faked...

    Exactly. Although it does make anyone involved with these shows look like complete idiots.

    You do realize this show is fake right. I mean the gun store is a real shop. They act all this **** out. And the guy that came in to sell that colt diamondback is not a moron...:upeyes:

    My friend and a few of his buddies were on lizard lick towing..he said it was all fake..well some of the stories they act out are somewhat true but the majority of it is just for entertainment.

    So in the end you do realize this show is just for entertainment right? Its the tv show directors that tell these people what to do.

    I miss the old days when people went on Jerry Springer to be a complete and totally useless tool.

    Not a fan of "Reality Shows" and even less a fan of pawn shops.

    This is worst than most reality shows. I've never been there and certainly have no plans now even though it's not far from me.
