I sent an email....why the heck not? I might get to shoot some cool stuff.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Metal Flowers Media (MFM), a talent agency for TV shows, is now casting a new guns-related show for the History Channel. This new show “is in the early stages of development”, and MFM asked AccurateShooter.com to help the agency find “gun enthusiasts who are extremely knowledgeable and love firearms”.

MFM is a well-known agency that has cast many popular shows including: Storage Wars, The Colony, One Man Army, Ice Road Truckers, and Frontiersmen. 
Here’s the text of MFM’s official ‘Casting Call’ press release:

“A nationwide search has begun to find the most enthusiastic, energetic people who know and love everything about guns! This new series will celebrate firearms in all forms. These gun experts will have their dreams come true as they get the chance to be featured on the History Channel! If you eat, sleep and breathe all things firearms – if you are the biggest ‘gun-nut’ – then this is the opportunity you have been waiting for! 
Casting Directors at Metal Flowers Media (The Colony, American Guns) are currently seeking people who are an encyclopedia of firearms. This gun know-it-all must be able to blow your typical gun enthusiast away with their knowledge of firearms.
 If you are 21 + and are able to spit a wide range of ‘gun talk’ we want to hear from you!”

If you fit the bill, have a vast knowledge of firearms, and would be interested in appearing on a new History Channel TV show, send an email to: barnett [at] metalflowersmedia.com .

I don't trust anything from History Channel, but hoping for the best.

IMHO, life is about experiences....and if I can gain some experiences, which I wouldn't be exposed to otherwise, then why not? I understand your hesitation though.

Oh, I'm not judging you or anything, I'm just saying that aside from Top Shot, History has lost a lot of it's former glory with me. I love Top Shot though, and I hope this does the same service Top Shot has to the firearms community (believe it or not, I know several folks who asked to go shoot after seeing Top Shot).

Also, best of luck to you!

Only because his knowledge exceeds mine typically (;)), I think Rcmodel is a prime candidate.

I'd do it, but there's folks here I have to inquire for help from. If he wasn't so busy, he'd be a grand addition to the History Channel.

Regardless of what anyone thinks of the recent crop of shows like Top Shot, Sons of Guns and American Guns, it marked a "mainstreaming" of the gun culture.
I was disappointed that those shows were pulled, if only because to me it meant a sort of "retreat."
This latest announcement, to me, is good news.

I don't know about the other 2 but I'm pretty sure the new season of Top Shots is pretty soon with returning competitors for a "Top Shots All-Stars"

Topshot should do a youtubers edition with Hickok45, nutnfancy, and all those other people.

Go on the show if you dare. They will take every opportunity to make you look like a fool. Not saying don't do it, but rarely is anything on television a true depiction of actual events.

Dang. I only have a half-vast knowledge of firearms.







(Well somebody had to say it. Too bad I drew the short straw.)

Still think "Tales of the Gun" and "Mail Call" were the best shows The History Channel had and are better than most of the stuff produced today. I hope they do something along those lines instead of some "extreme" reality-type show...

They used the phrase "gun nut" enough said. Trash.

Hmm... As broke as I am, I would be glad to prostitute myself on their show. A little fame would be nice too. Unfortunately I don't consider myself a walking encyclopedia on guns. For handguns I'd give myself a 7/10, way above the average guy but far below the icons in the industry. Rifles and shotguns, not so much. And yes withthe emphasis on gun nuts, I bet it's going to be some kind of parody even if given a fair shake. I wonder if I have to go to them, or they come to me.

I couldn't find it on MFMs site either, but this is where I saw it:

I apologize, I should have included it in the original post.

Wow. Cannot wait to see the perpetuated stereotypes the producers of the show choose.

People in HERE don't think I have a 'vast' knowledge of firearms, but non-gun people do. I wouldn't mind being part of a program that highlights research and experimentation, but I'm a bit old and damaged to be doing the stunts on 'Top Shot'. I'm on permanent profile for lower leg pain, I don't see myself strapping into windmill blades, and y'all would laugh so hard watching me scramble over a wall, you would DVR it and show it to your friends. I would wind up on Tosh.0. No thanks.

And I have a suspicion that it will be more 'American Guns' than 'Top Shot'.

You mean, like Floyd R. Turbo?
