    So, for the 2nd time I've seen an episode of Auction Hunters that features the two guys finding some shotguns in a storage locker they buy and then taking them to Oak Tree to sell. The issue is this: they reportedly bring a 16 GA M97 to sell. It's checked out by one of Oak Tree's owners who pronounces it a "collectible" because it's a 16 GA. Then they go to shoot it. They seem to be shooting a trap shot with the bird going straight away. The deal is, I know it's on one of the Skeet courses because i shoot the same course. So the shot of the bird being broken by the big guy is most likely bogus. Then, adding insult to injury, when the hull ejects, it has a silver rim with a red case....looking for all the world like a Win budget 1 1/8 oz trap round. I shoot a lot of 16 gauge and none that I know of looks like that. Have any of you seen this episode and if so, what do you think? staged or real? 16 ga or 12?

    Funny thing is, they have or had a M97 Chicom 12 GA in their used rack for $250..the same price they mention in the show.

    I have not seen this or any other episode of auction hunters or many other so called reality T.V shows for that matter. One thing I do know is that 99% of them are neither real or based in any realm of reality that I have ever seen. They are all staged and scripted. They are put on television for the average know nothing brainless idiot to rot his/her mind. They are about as real as WWF wrestling or a daytime soap. The one exception might be Deadliest Catch. People die on that show. You can't get much more "real" then that.
