American guns

Anyone seen it? I don't know what channel it's on as I have been watching past episode's on the internet. Seems to have run from 2013-14. Basically it's a high end gun shop in Denver that buys and sells very expensive guns and also makes custom guns from scratch. It has some interesting moments as well as some real head scratchers.
Example-shop makes a hand built modal 1866 Winchester. Even machines a receiver from a solid block of brass. Pretty advanced stuff, right? Well they forgot to head space the chamber. First test shot shooter gets a face full of brass and gas. Huh?

Discovery Channel- was cancelled in 2012 right after, and because of, Sandy Hook.
Used to watch it when it was on.

I didn't like it much, because it was totally "scripted", and they sensationalized just about everything. They paraded the females out in short shorts, acted like they were marksmen when they could hit a gallon jug at 40 feet with an M1 carbine, and their appraisals of "collector" firearms were far from accurate. I never understood how it made its way to the 6th episode.

We had a good deal of discussion on the show when it first came out. The general consensus was the show was too much TV and not enough reality.
I step out of the shower wearing nothing but an AR-15 and a frown.

Superior gear will never make up for a lack of training or attitude.

When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.- Chief Tecumseh
