    Visited Gunsmoke gunshop of "American Guns" on Discovery channel

    Gunsmoke.jpg

    In Denver on business this week and looked up Gunsmoke Gun Shop where the Discovery Channel show "American Guns" is filmed. I had a good 30 minute conversation with Bob, the older guy who works there. I saw Rich and Kurt Wyatt in the shop, but not Renee or Paige.

    The Discovery crew was there filming for an upcoming episode.

    Why does everything look so much bigger on TV? This place was quite small.

    They use wide angle lenses which give a bigger appearance.

    Ahhhh Hahahaha! I was just talking about this! Lets see...
    $500 m&p
    $800 PAINT JOB!!!
    $400 for a trigger job!! What!!!! This was absurd to me! A paint job at my local Cerakote Guy is $150 for slide annnddd frame and a apex trigger kit for $100?? Yea I will never pay that much for a m&p. And the paint job looked like a cheap airbrush job like the front license plates at the state fair. Lol

    Too bad you didn't fly in there on a helicopter.........on second thought maybe you did?
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Actually I thought it was $1500 for the pistol. The trigger job was $100 and Rich was complaining because they only made $100 on the deal. Still too expensive if you ask me...

    Of course they pay. Just to say they bought a gun at gun smoke. It's just an image and people pay for it

    Was that the 'alligator hunter'?

    I think it was 8K for the scout rifle alone? The show is so poorly scripted, it is beyond comprehension.

    ...Sadly, I'll watch anything that has guns.

    The prices he throws out makes me go cross-eyed as I mutter bull feces,I think his niche is making guns that customers just gotta have and throwing out a reeeaallly high number,then knocking off 1000-1500 to make them think they are getting a deal
