    those guys came here to my hometown last week to film..at MY storage place,nonetheless!
    Also the auction hunters show was here a few weeks ago!
    my friend does that stuff for many now and once found a unit with nothing but a tall safe in it. the unit was on the second story and no one else wanted to buy the unit and schlepp it . He bid $10 and won.Called a locksmith and opened it,.....$200,000 !!! I guess it belonged to some child molester who got busted , went to prison and couldnt pay his storage!! OH WELL!!

    Well, first of all it they aren't 'pickers', they're just antique dealers, or should I say, a lawyer and an auctioneer pretending to be antique dealers. What makes it worse is that they are from Calgary.

    Secondly, they come over as a pair of backwoods bumpkins, which I'm assuming is an act, but maybe not.

    Thirdly, they dress like morons. Now I live in Calgary, where it isn't unusual at all to see people wearing cowboy hats (during the Stampede everyone wears them) and other western clothing, but the one guy (Scott the lawyer) looks like he's dressed up for Hallowe'en.

    They can't haggle, do deals or even act convincingly.

    It's just fake, pathetic, contrived and irritating. My wife (who is Canadian) rates it alongside "Due South" as another of those embarrasing shows that "make Canadians look like a bunch of hicks".

    I'm not even Canadian, and it embarasses me.

    lol, I will have to check it out. At least you guys don't have to be held responsible for such garbage as 'Jersey Shore'.

    Speaking of shows, I saw myself on the Discovery Channel the other day! It was an episode of 'Combat Cash' that was filmed at the D-Day Conneaut reenactment that I attended as a G.I.

    I'll go find the link...

    That's what we always say.

    PS, those guys are a couple of morons. I agree, I can't stand the show.

    Pawn Stars is a fraud IMO. My friend was in Vegas on business and they put him on the show. It wasn't even his items! He stopped by the shop and they asked him if he wanted to 'act'. He said Rick drinks beer all day and chain smokes. I saw the episode and it was laughable.

    One of these days someone is going to knock Dave in his mouth, and it's going to be hysterical. He is going to get robbed in the parking lot, the way he throws around that stack of bills.

    Ive met quite a number of Americans over here, Lakenheath, Raf Northolt, etc and of course on here and i can say that everyone ive met or talked to have been friendly ,sensible and a pleasure to be with and know , but these guys do their country a dis service, another pleasure for me would be to see the whole lot find themselves absolutely penniless, the old man needs to be retired, his son do time, his son join the army and that total waste of space chumley be sent to a special needs school, i cannot imagine a scenario whereby i could even bring myself to be in their company without wanting to do some terrible harm to them, there are a few people that i can say i truly hate in this world and they rank high on that list

    I was in Vegas on vacation in 2010 and stopped by the store. I only saw the Old Man and the big black dude sitting at the door. The black dude was actually friendlier than anyone else. They had a lot of "no body" workers. All of the items I looked at were GROSSLY over priced. I can hardly remember any specific item, but believe me, I know they had at least one American Civil War musket that was way, way over priced, and it wasn't a rare maker. I think they make more money selling Chumlee bobble heads than they do actual items. I left empty handed, and felt pretty good about it. I would have liked to have seen their business prior to the show.
