Gunsmoke and The Lone Ranger are available streaming on Netflix...I'm thinking some Bonanza too! Great Saturday morning fare in my household (to the groans of my 15 yo daughter *snicker* heeheehee)...you can't leave out "Bullwinkle and Rocky" either...man, they just don't make 'em the way they used too!

Reality TV is in no way real. Most is staged. I've been involved in video taping / filming of several venues. I was filmed in a COPS episode in the 90's. It is first & foremost, entertainment.
Sometimes the director or producer will want a re-take of a particular scene that can not for a variety of reasons, be recreated as originally filmed. She was clearly shooting a Desert Eagle in one take, and on another she is clearly pointing a Beretta. In the editing process the editor will cut and splice as required to get the preferred results. If I had to guess, for some reason her firing the Eagle did not work out on film, but by the time it was reviewed, the gun owner had left, so they used what was on hand for the retake. If they are guilty of anything, they are guilty of being too cheap to recall the gun owner or of being in too much of a hurry to wait for her to come back and retake.
That doesn't mean that Sons of Guns is faked, but the bottom line is entertainment. I hope you don't believe everything you see on TV, or on the Internet. Even the "news" is, bottom line: sponsorship and ratings.
Not Desert Eagle.

Her grip is also broken, I would think somebody who claims to shoot as much as she does would know how to properly hold a pistol.
Its not about guns...Its about Freedom!

Yeah watch Swamp People and see one of the guys pointing a .22 bolt action at the alligator's head and take the shot. Next camera angle will show him holding a .22 pump rifle or even better a bolt centerfire with a scope. This got so rediculious this was one of the things I would concentrate the hardest on...finding the flub-ups.

Shooting the DE is an eyes-open exercise; the Beretta only requires use of the Force.
It's tv folks. I'm not too concerned with the flubs, since they don't affect the show at all. Its fun to find them, but to quit watching a show because of it is just stupid. They've had some cool builds. I've missed the last few episodes this season, but the first season and what I've seen of the second season looks fairly entertaining.
Once one subtracts out the 'Black Plastic Bullet Wasters' and the phoney drama, there ain't much left.
Nothing of any real significance to a serious firearms student, anyway.
Okay, the episode with the flame thrower was the exception; but it was only because of the gentleman who knew how to work it.
Anyone Worth Shooting Is Worth Shooting Well

What about the episode where they built the MLRS for the cargo ship guys. Those rockets wouldn't fly straight at all. There was no possible way to know where they were going to end up.
If I was going to shoot rockets at a pirate, I would damn sure want to get them across his bow instead of just in his general direction. Or better yet, just sink his ass. Good luck swimming back to shore from 12 miles out.
