    How many of you watch firearm programming on TV...?!

    I just realized as I was reviewing my Comcast ( local cable provider ) DVR recording list that I compiled over the past few days to watch at a later time and realized how many I actually tune into on a regular basis...

    Here's the list:

    American Rifleman
    Guns & Ammo TV
    Personal Defense TV
    TAC TV
    Guns & Gear
    Gun Talk TV
    Shooting USA
    The Best Defense: Survival
    Three Gun Nation
    Field & Stream: The Gun Nuts
    Midway's Rapid Fire
    Gallery of Guns
    Ruger: Inside & Out
    Impossible Shots
    Ted Nugent: Spirit of the Wild
    World Of Beretta

    then there is...
    Top Shot
    Top Guns
    Family Guns
    Sons of Guns
    American Gun

    and the list goes on...

    I mean... some are obviously self serving ( Ruger / Beretta...Family, Sons of, and American Guns ), but others really do inform and entertain.

    Do you guys watch any of these shows !?

    If so, which ones do you prefer...?!

    Which ones do you hate...?!

    And why...?!

    I don't watch a lot of tv, but when I do it's the history channel,or Discovery channel.
    I do sometimes flip around and catch a few bits and pieces of some of them shows up above.

    Guess Im a lot lik rich1028.....What little tv I watch leans toward scinence channel, AE, History...ect.

    Have tried some of those but dont find them very interesting.

    Top shot is, IMO, the worst.

    I watch those channels as well but it seems more and more their programming is supplemented with reality TV.

    Seems that most people are turned off by the whole "reality" am I.

    But this thread did stir up some comments on the lack of good firearm programming on

    mainstream TV. I myself DVR the above episodes...then skim through them to the heart

    of the matter...or see how the first few minutes start out and delete if not interested.

    I really wish there was something with substance...and a few of those shows above do

    actually have some credibility ( Guns & Gear with Gresham for example...or Shooting USA with

    Scouten ) do keep me abreast of the goings on in the firearm industry and competitive circuit, so I

    do watch them with interest.

    Guess I'm a with rich1028 and SWO1.
    Don't watch much TV. My favorite show is NCIS and my wife watches the HG-TV network. The TV stays off until about 5:00 in the afternoon.
    By default, I watch the St Louis Cards and the Pittsburgh Steelers. I have my son-in-law to thanks for that.
    If I'm not out and about doing something, my favorite pass time is Marlinforum. :D
