    It has probably been cancelled. It looks like all the major networks have cancelled every gun related "reality" show. The only channels still showing anything gun related are Primus and The Outdoor Channel. It seems that when CNN and MSNBC told everyone that guns are the root of all evil, they believed it. Just like they believed all the fabulous fairy tale stories about our president.

    Was supposed to be Discovery channel (per the news paper articles from last summer). Their two current guns shows, "American Guns" and "Sons of Guns", are both showing their upcoming TV schedules to be "none scheduled" (per Discovery website). Right after the CT murders, Discovery quickly pulled all their gun shows off the air. They didn't even tell the people in the shows that they had cancelled their programs. The folks on one of the shows appeared on FOX News a week after the murders and said they found out along with everyone else, when they heard it on the news. Discovery producers didn't even bother to call them and they refused to provide someone for FOX to interview during that segment.

    I hope they have reconsidered their knee-JERK reaction and will go forward with their gun-related shows.

    Both American Guns and Sons of Guns were due to be cancelled before the tragedy, but it makes good press to say otherwise. Ratings are ratings

    Well, I do NOT own a Television thing, however I did go to Anchorage yesterday, and I got several incredible deals at Wild West Guns, Special thank you to "KID" and ken. Note: They had a steal of a deal on a Bushmaster Varminter AR-15, for about $400.00 less than I would even think of selling mine for.

    Seriously? I used to work with a guy who could be Ken's twin. I know just how to deal with those New Yoik type characters. Phred stole the show. She's smart...and hot.
    I liked the way Kid shaved down the weight on the rifle. I saw what he did to the bolt handle too. THAT is taking off unnecessary weight. The woman who bought the rifle to go to Kodiak was a hit in my book; wish more were like that. Heh, I'd like to go to Kodiak too. What's the limit on deer there?

    Saw a little of the show last night. I was interesting to watch although I thought that shot gun set up on the four wheelers was a little too much. I did not catch what it's purpose was gong to be. It will be interesting to see where the show goes from here. Enjoyed the hunting scene's and hope they have more of them. It would also be nice if they kept the theme to the level that most of us could afford these hunts.

    It did not have a modern purpose. That set up is of a historical interest from the distant past. Airplanes could be fitted with the rack system holding two semi-auto shotguns out at each of the wing tips. The pilot would fly down wolves and shoot them as they ran from the plane. The typical rig held 40 rounds of 00-buck or some other shot depending on what the pilot prefered. Shooting wolves out of air planes with shotguns used to be a regular thing to do.

    These rigs are now a museum piece for collectors of arms history.
