Watching Lords of War on NatGeo. It's that Sean guy from Pawn Stars. People bring him guns he talks a little history about it. Then they sell them at his auctions. Pretty simple and fun.

This is a good show. Its about the items, their history and what they will sell for. There's little added drama that most reality type shows have.

I just discovered this show last night as I waited for some dental work pain meds to scoot me off to La-La Land. I was really intrigued.

Folks bring in some cool old weapons, experts evaluate/appraise said weapon, weapon is either rejected or accepted into auction. If the the weapon doesn't reach the appraised amount then the appraiser doesn't get 15% of the cut.

Really simple and really interesting. Nice history and information and it's fun to watch them shoot some of these old warhorses:evil:

There's little added drama that most reality type shows have.Except for the:
"We must test fire it.
If it doesn't fire, it's worth only half as much, and we won't even sell it" BS.

Seriously!!

They did it with a nice old 94 Winchester the other night.

At worst, if a nice old 94 Winchester won't fire?
They & the TV crew dry-fired it for the TV show filming too many times and broke the dang firing pin!!

That really doesn't de-value it by half or more.

It's just another totally fake reality show with staged sellers. The one guy going on and on about how the Kel-Tec bullpup was the best designed rifle on the market was annoying.

there was that one odd dude with the MAC-10.....same guy who sold some rockets or something on American Guns, that show with the family in CO that owned the gun store.

February 7, 2013, 11:24 AM
MAKster beat me to it, I was starting to find it intresting until he rambled on about the K-T rifle, being the best designed weapon EVER ..... LOL

Some of the other stuff they come up with is cool though, I was listening to it from the other room,and thought I heard that WWII spotlight go for $20K ???
THAT was a little hard to believe,, but maybe if it stills works,, IDK maybe thats what they are worth ??

That's a pretty extreme statement considering they demonstrated it fired and sold it as a working firearm on the show (did you watch the show?).

Larry,

What was the condition of the '94 at the time of the auction?

larry harley
February 8, 2013, 12:12 AM
jdex. we will be moving the the auction around. same tent different bails of straw. different town .
i,ll try to get a scheduled for next season
u can bid on line too we saw way more stuff than we could sell on tv



the condition of the Winchester was pristine at the time of the auction.
i hunt sometimes w a 35 Remington auto 1905 on a browning patton.
ida took this 30 30 to the woods had it been mine

i,m probably that " ol hairy farmer dude" ha ha ha
sorry but i,m not stereotypical
i am what i am

citizen of the lost state of franklin
east tn., s.w. va., western n.c., north ga, s.w. va.
just because a fellow has no neck and talks funny ( to u) does not mean hes stupid
where i live we r all ol,hairy farmer dudes!!!

i,ll bet u live in a large metropolitan area of the nation and or have never really been exposed to real hillbillies.

Larry on average how many live bidders do you have when you do the auctions? I was a little surprised to see so few warm bodys on the show. I have been to a few weapon only auctions and they always had people in the 100's standing around.

Also i thought it was pretty cool episode with the mak 10. I dont know the gentalmens name who was selling it but i have seen him on a few different shows and he has lots of military stuff....some of it real big.

some times that left us suckn hind tit too :( u dont see everything that happened!!

with the show airing i,m sure next yr will feed on this yr.
i,m not sure about that guy being on another show .... people want to be on tv and there are not that many really BIG arms collectors out there.
i didnt get to see nearly enough high end swords and knives
w..w.1 and w.w. 2 bayonets!!! gosh save me from them rusty bayonets.i think every citizen in this country has at least 3 and they r all rusted and not worth nearly what folks think.
we r really a history show even though we trip a little bit from time to time its tough setn under a tent all day while folks bring u stufffff and u tell them history behind it all
if u r looking for perfect. i ant it:0

Do you post a list what cities you are going to set up in?

Think though could have given some more info on the MG-42, specifically about the $3500-4000 price. Mentioned it was a dealer sample. Maybe explain that us regular folks can't buy a MG-42 at that price. Dealers only.

Keep up the good work.

This is correct but a show like this is still new..give it time. My dad and I have been collecting antique tractors since before anyone else wanted them. We used to follow the auctions all over the country and would always see the same people there. Used to be (25+ years ago) 20-100 people and 10-30 bidders...now at the bigger ones its 100's of people and some approaching 1000 with 50-100 main bidders. The last 5 years or so our auction adventures are limited because of my dads age, and we sell instead of buy because people pay way more then we ever did or will....(sort of like guns right now).

When selling NFA items, it might be apropos to mention that the buyer is subject to paperwork and a long wait; instead of implying any 'Mercan can waltz out of an auction with a NFA F/A suppressed MAC.

Looked to me he was bump firing from the hip. I could do the same thing at a near full auto rate of fire with an SKS. If you watch the slow motion, you can clearly see his trigger finger actuating each shot.

That was not being shot full auto.


On an unrelated note: Larry, the Falchion that was brought in, even though it was a modern repro, was it worth the $250 the guy paid for it?

Show OK, but predictable. Always end the appraisal with "but we need to shoot it". They might want to look at the parts / internals to make sure its ready to go hot. Cheezy!! How about everytime they pull the trigger, you see a brief blast and then go to commercial. Come on producers, thats a sure signal for me to go for a snack. Thankfully I DVR the show and can skip all of this meaningless drama. Also why do the owners freak when the bid meets the guaranteed amount? If its $1 under the estimate they make more [no auction fee] unless the final amount goes more than 15% over the guarantee.

Come on, how many people show up to spend $35k for a search light? Even with phone/online bidders that's a stretch. Like I said, the show is OK but after just a few episodes, I'm losing interest.

not many, but we after a couple sessions in cal we had several folks that followed us off and on through the whole season trying to buy stuffffff. they would fly in on there own plane!!

now as far as the criticism goes how about some constructive criticism!!
dont just ell me the chilli is not good. tell me the chilli is not good and it needs more salt and chilli powder.

Thought I did "Dude". No one questioning who is or isn't a master gunsmith, just that the process of making the show is [what was that word], predictable. As for the DVR break, how about watching something else and coming back to this one later when I can skip all the commercials and "Cheesy" stuff. As for the constructive feedback, change things up every once in a while. That's what producers do. And its not human nature for someone to have a valuable item up for auction and not have calculated where they would like to see it end up. The estimate is for the auction team, not the seller. If it were my item, I'd want it to end up a $1 short on that $5000 estimate. I make an extra $749. People who go to auctions that sell hi end stuff, are not your Sat nite browsers.

Sorry dude, the show has lost it luster after only a few very redundant episodes.

I agree with Larry Harley....the show appears to be quite contrived. The "bidders" look/act more like actors or random people of the street paid to be there. And, the young dude standing in the background moving his arms up and down trying to get the crowd to bid higher? Come on....

I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something with this show. I checked several blogs that covered the show, and the general opinion is pretty close to what I stated. Many call it contrived and staged. Don't know how they shoot it and where they find the sellers, but I can sleep tonight knowing I'm not the only one who isn't flipping out over this show.

I suspect the "auction" is fake. There only appears to be about 10 people in the crowd.

Constructive criticism, ok here goes.

I like you interaction with people, however I agree with the guy who said the young guy needs to lay off the caffeine. It was entertaining the first few interactions, then it got to where I was embarresed for him.

The people bring things are either horrible actors, or you all need to tell them to be more comfortable in front of the camera, have them lose the costumes.

Explain more of where you all shoot the guns, they all look like it is the same range, yet you are in a diffrent city?

Interview the winning bidders, would love to hear some of thier stories on why they purchased certain items.

If they really are flying thier own planes there show that, I have noticed a lot of the same people in the crowd, hell I'm in a city of a million and if something like that came here there would be more than 59 bidders there.

Like someone else said, loose the range scene, we have all seen tannernite explode and are not impressed.

Yeah, I'm not one for the explosions either, but I'm aware that some people are into that.
And I agree with a previous poster, it beats the hell out of Sons of Guns.
And I think Sean is a pretty cool dude. I didn't like it when Pawn Stars started using other people, though I suspect it had to do with Sean's schedule. He seems much more knowledgeable than the other yahoos they bring in.

I liked the Scottish Claymore episode. Reminded me of one of the reasons why we have a second amendment in the first place.

I like the way Hammer get emotional (to the point of tears) when talking about vets.

It's a TV show and a pretty good one for the format. I think the more obscure the weapon the more interesting. However, you need to have some mainstream appeal.

All those complaining about the auction might be better entertained staring at gunbroker all day.:evil:

Kind of beating a dead horse here. You either like it or not. I'm in the DVR first crowd so I can get to the real content which is about 30% of the show. It's just too darn contrived for me.

Done here.

I'm having a similar feeling. The first couple of episodes I really liked this show, but it started getting old very quickly. It feels like I'm watching the same episode every time to me. I'd like to see more interviews with the buyers of the weapons as mentioned above. I think that would help some.

I honestly like both Sons of Guns and American Guns a lot better. I definitely don't think they know nearly as much about guns as these guys and I don't feel like I learn anything from their shows, but they are a lot more entertaining to me and keep me interested.

I like the show. The guys (Larry and his partners) are knowledgeable and fun to watch. I've bought a lot of guns in auction over the years, and I'd like to go to one of theirs!
In an earlier post someone suggested interviewing the buyers (those that are willing), I think that would be interesting.
Keep up the good work Larry!

I really like the show Larry. I always thought that Sean should have his own show, Whenever the Pawnstars guys would call for his expertise.

I don't usually like the range scenes, But I have to admit the episode where the MG42 was fired was fantastic!! That sucker really snorted.

I don't care at all for the auction stuff. I'm ok with you and your partners valuations of the stuff that comes up. The auction prices generally reflect your approximate values in the end, for the most part.

I would simply like to see MORE of the stuff that comes through your tents. Loose the auction scenes and fit a few more of those interesting items that you see, As I am positive you see many many cool things that don't make the cut for airtime on the show. Make it more of the 'Antiques Roadshow' for us gun and military guys.

Overall the show is very enjoyable, and you do a great job of showing the world that us militaria and firearm collectors aren't all that strange or uncommon.

Thanks again Larry!

I was glad to see something other than a Tannerite explosion when Sean was chicken out that Blunderbuss. The several dozen eggs splattering all over the range was a nice change of pace.

I, too have gotten a bit bored with the auction scenes. I'd rather see what it is estimated at, what it sold for, and a few comments from the buyer rather than the auction itself. There are other shows that revolve around auctions, I'd rather see Lords of War focus more on the items, their history, and the buyer of said item.

I also like NRA's Guns and Gold over on the Sportsmans channel, but my wife will sit and watch Lords of War. Guns and Gold is a little too boring for her.

I was expecting it to be a better honestly. I find the rigged / highly edited auctions and the "But will it fire?" sections to be rather annoying. These seem to be the main focus of the show and not the firearms.

USAF_Vet

I don't know if the auctions are rigged. You see a lot if the same people bidding show after show, place after place, but that really isn't that uncommon in the auction world.

But it isn't very suspenseful, like the commercial break just before the gun fires. Larry says the whole show is a history lesson, but I have to disagree. It's a history lesson at the tables where the item gets evaluated, which is only about 1/3 of the show. The rest is rage time and the auction.

Larry, I'm an old Kentucky boy who got to blow up plenty of stuff in the USAF. A puff of Tannerite smoke is a little lackluster to me these days. The model ship, the eggs, those were new and different. New and different is always good. Every show that shoots stuff shoots at Tannerite.

He does have a good point here. Personally I've had and awful lot of fun over the years shooting old cars, and appliances at my farms old dump.

Ok, so I finally watched the last episodes tonight, really just had them on in the background while cleaning some guns. I decided its not a bad show, it just is what it is, a decent show that could be better but is to overproduced.

I was happy to send an email, but I did suggest less Tannerite and more novel reactive targets.
