Anybody watch Pawn Stars? I like Antiques roadshow.. and old/neat stuff in general so I find the show entertaining.
Anyhoo there was a guy on there selling dueling pistols. Turns out a guy I work with knows him. (He is from WV and doesnt live in Vegas)
He said the pistols were not his - the producers basically asked everyone in the store "who wants to be on tv"? He said he would do it so they gave him the pistols and told him what to say
I was kind of wondering how all the items on there seemed so interesting. Turns out they just cherry-pick them and get random people to appear on the show with them.
