Everything is fake with this show. This whole "bit" is prolly just something to stir the pot.

I walked past one in Shepparton Vic some twenty-five years ago, I have not seen another as they aren't an Australian thing.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

Yep. It’s even worse than Pawn Stars. And the family that owns it is dumber too. If that even possible.

Interesting. That never occurred to me. In the US, they function like a bank loan office, except the collateral you put up to back your loan is personal chattels. If you don't pay back the loan, the broker keeps the chattels and sells them to make up for what you owed. So they become expert at figuring out how much they could sell things for in order to determine how much of a loan they can afford to give.

How were they Cajuns? That was in Alexandria, waaaaay north of I-10. Rednecks maybe.

They are only about three notches above politicians.


And about 10 notches above delusional, self appointed, hate filled, pathological lying preachers.

Someone with $100 took advantage of someone that needed $100?

My Dad actually visited Pawn Stars in Vegas, but he did it early in the morning like most militaries tend to prefer. No "celebs" around, not much of a crowd, but lots of T-shi rts for sale. Still enjoyed the program, though.
I've gotten some pretty good deals at pawnshops, but it does require a little "shopping." However, I've got two excellent commercial Mausers that were 250 out the door each, a little mungy on the outside, but I got them out of the stock and no pitting, so I was happy to throw down and yay for me.

Only an idiot in their right mind has to loose at a pawn shop, gun shop or gun show. Though well deserved when successful...

You talking to me again?

You bet I'm filled to the top and running over with hate for the Drag Queen Story Hour pot bellied pedos.
I'll take every one of your insults as a compliment considering your views on that Jack. Here's your views on the Drag Queen Story Hour in CONTEXT
.

[NV said 7-19-21

"My thoughts are that a deranged, sexually frustrated, Christian zealot, with a martyr complex, who must constantly set up his soap box in the public square to tell everyone that disagrees with his parochial version of religion that they are going to hell, is a dunce. (How's that for a run on sentence?)
Crappy Hamper came here looking for attention and I'm more than happy to oblige him. He might not like the attention he gets though.
What happens between consenting adults in private is none of my business.
If you don't like what your children are learning at their school, take them out and put them in a school that teaches what you agree with."

I say
Call me whatever you and the fairies you defend want to label me.
Flaming pedos should never be in any schools, libraries or near children!

Now tell us what about you makes you call yourself "Christian"???

Been to the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop twice. Met Rick once. He was actually a pretty nice dude. He has a BBQ joint next door that is pretty descent.
