    I watched it and here's what I got out of it.

    It's not so much about the guns and the sales and all of that. It is more about the people, interactions with different types of shooters. Talking a little BS with the guys. People bringing their stories, anecdotes, and reasons for wanting a firearm.

    Not what I expected, not a bad concept though. It gives a real intimate look at the everyday people who come in and out of the shop. It doesn't highlight any of the stereotypes that the antis assume are buying the guns. It's real everyday normal people like business owners and grandmothers.

    It also doesn't present either side as being "right". Which is kind of cool. Allows people to draw their own conclusions. It definitely isn't preaching anything to you. It's all done via hidden cameras inside the shop. It's not presented as a TV show, but a collection of various interactions with the customers. The people crack jokes & have a bit of fun. It's not political by any means. The shop owner never talks to the camera and explains anything to you. The show allows people to be a "fly on the wall" so to speak and observe objectively.

    But didn't you think the shop owner was leading them?

    Different Lock n Load...with R. Lee Ermey. But still a very good program.

    No, it just seemed like he handpicked the most interesting ones for the show. I know for a fact that is how it works. The ones that make you laugh or something like that.

    Lock N' Load on Showtime......

    Anyone been keeping up on this series?? I have watched the first three episodes.......it's kinda neat.....but kinda scary at the same time.
    I personally believe that EVERY person has a right to arm themselves for protection....... but really....some of these people scare me!

    Anyone else been watching it? It's a hidden camera kind show from a gun store/shooting range outside Denver, CO.

    I've watched 3 shows so far and I like it.I have direct t.v. and I can get it on demand t.v. which is free after you buy the box that cost $ 85.00.

    Very entertaining show, but I doubt very seriously that I would frequent that shop if I was a local. Those guns are pointed at everything and everybody in the building throughout the show. The guy himself points a pistol at a customer as he walks through the door and yells freeze! If that had been me the situation would have escalated rapidly, I assure you.

    I watched the first 2 episode and came away disappointed, I thought it was boring. I was hoping for something more interesting along the line of Pawn Stars. The firearms transactions on that show are much more interesting.

    This is really either going to really horrible or slightly worse than bad for gun ownership I am thinking.

    A reality show about a gunstore. No good ever comes from reality shows.

    Nonetheless though I will still try to watch a little and who knows maybe I will like it and I can Netflix it.

    "No good ever comes from reality shows"

    Truer words were never spoken......good point. Don't care much for exploiting shooters and gun owners in a comic environment. Also, this guy has Lagossi eyes......maybe a black cape would be the ticket other than a SOB holster.

    IMO . . . Not good or bad, worse it is boring. I also believe that there is not an honest reality show out there. From the stupid home improvement, cooking, and landscaping shows to Survivor and the biggest loser. They are all BS.

    The only things I have really had a problem with, was the pointing of the gun at the customer.......which I hope was staged, but still inappropreate...... and the last one where they are shooting out in the boonies and the trash is all over. I know they prolly didn't bring it all out there, but I hate to see that there are some VERY trashy, inconsiderate, POS's out there that would just leave trash all over after they shoot! IMHO, that paints a worse picture that anything I have seen on the show......kinda gives the image of all shooters & they were supporting it by shooting there.....it would of been a GREAT plug if they cleaned the place up afterwards & would of shown that!
    Am I way off base here?? I hope persons on HERE would not do that........
