Host knows nothing about topics...and neither do "experts"
Sat thru several episodes during back to back showings and was amazed at how little the host knows about firearms, ballistics and the history of the firearms they spotlight. The AK47 episode was the worst...just checking a questionable source like Wikipedia would have helped. In brief: The M-14 is NOT an assault rifle. Assault rifles fire an intermediate round, the 7.62NATO/.308 is anything but, it's a full size...full power round and the M-14 can not be controlled by 99% of the world's population in full auto mode. The M16/M4 carbine is not a carbine because it has rails, like the "expert" guest claimed. That's so dumb its funny. Almost ANY military rifle today can have rails attached to it. A carbine is a carbine because of short barrel length, NO other reason. I find it extremely difficult to believe that the "expert" who claimed that fact was a real Navy SEAL. The coconuts he shot didn't fall or explode because he shot them with a "short" round...it because of ballistics, something this show's host and producers have constantly demonstrated they know nothing about. Those "tests" they demo are useless and prove nothing. Shooting a square piece of clay proves nothing. The graphic they use for the M-14 isn't an M-14...it an FN/FAL. They don't even look alike. This show isn't good for anything except watching crap get shot in slow motion and it's disgustingly pitiful how little research and fact checking went into it. But, hey, his hair looks great...
