How about that guy almost killing Rick on Pawn Stars last night?

    That was funny.

    "Sorry. Your statue isn't real. It says "MADE IN AMERICA" right here."

    He had to get Bubba out of the corner to protect him. :rofl::rofl:

    I find the people that bring in fake stuff the best part of the show. The lady with the huge carved tusks - That was great. "But they are pretty. Can't I get any money for that?"

    Rick and his father handled the situation very well. Probably not unusual at a LV pawnshop. I've seen the same thing at my old law office more than once. :wavey:

    Don't shoot the messenger!

    The father is an old pro and did indeed handle it well.

    They were charitable with their opinion as it looked like a cheap bronze resin casting from a distance.

    Nah, the big brawny guy was headed towards them and Rick said, "that's alright, I've got this." Rick looked more than capable of squashing that guy by himself.

    Between Rick and the kid and Chumlee, there is a lot of meat in that store.

    Has anyone ever been to a pawn shop that had a bouncer?

    Yup,
    1888 statue = $1500.00
    taxi to LV pawn shop = $15.50
    finding out your statue is a fake and not believing the pro telling you that! =
    PRICELESS.
    That guy was a complete Jackbass! I was laughing at him. :rofl:

    The funny part about that is that the bouncer makes those three look pretty small!!! The guy has to be at least 6'6" and somewhere between 350-400#. He could have passed for an offensive lineman in the NFL.

    I've noticed the trend with the Hollywood types, and bouncers too. They get the biggest (black) guy they can find for the protection/escort detail.

    I'm not puffing up my chest and saying I'd mess with someone like that, OTOH, other than their size, what actually are their protection bona fides? Seems to me you'd want someone with the skills.

    Unless it's because the big guy will intimidate 99% of the troublemakers, and works cheaper than someone with a real LEO/MIL/Protection resume

    Yeah, but in that kind of situation all the big guy has to do is grab you and the situation is pretty much over.

    Besides, with Rick's affinity towards guns you can bet he has a shotty behind the counter.

    I bet since the show has been on TV the number of idiots that come into the store has risen exponentially, that cant be all fun.

    He bought the glider, had it fixed up, and Chumlee took a ride in it.

    I watched a "pre-quil" to Pawn Stars a year or 2 ago, and they showed Big Hoss with a .45 in easy reach under the counter. I'm sure there are a few stashed throughout the store.

    I like the show a lot. The old man strikes me as the type of guy that has a .38 for you if you don't like his diplomacy.
