    Check it out Tonight! Should air around 10:00 pm on the FX Network(check your local schedules)

    From the 30 Days website:
    http://www.fxnetworks.com/shows/orig...days/index.php


    PARTICIPANT - Pia Lalli, 39
    RESIDES - Brockton, MA
    OCCUPATION - Aerobics Instructor
    AIRDATE - Tuesday, July 1, 2008
    After Pia learned that her friend had been killed by a schizophrenic man wielding a gun in 1996, she became a gun control advocate who has fought to pass stricter gun laws in the U.S. Pia believes that the world would be free from gun violence only by prohibiting the sale of guns to anyone outside of law enforcement and armed services.

    For 30 Days, Pia will live in the heart of gun culture in the rural town of Leesburg, Ohio with gun enthusiast Ken Ekermeyer, 39, and his 15-year-old son Zach. Ken is an avid gun collector and rarely leaves home without his gun strapped to his side. Ken believes carrying a gun is his right guaranteed to every American by the Second Amendment. As Pia struggles to understand the Ekermeyer's beliefs and somewhat isolated way of life, she will work at a local gun store and experience what it is like to carry a gun in public, learn to handle and fire weapons and will introduce Ken to other gun control activists who have lost loved ones to gun violence.
    It will be interesting to see how this turns out, but I think we can all predict what happens: The Anti-Gunner will finally come to the realization that guns DON'T kill people, gun control doesn't work, good people SHOULD have guns, and maybe she will evenunderstandthat she is responsible for her own self-defense and startcarrying oneherself (Hey, I can dream, can't I?).

    Watch it for yourself and post your opinions on the show here.

    She'll be carrying on the job from day 1? That or she'll look silly going naked at a gun shop. Either way, this should be good.

    I'm in it.

    There's a short clip of me shooting my (very loud) Surbu .50 BMG rifle in the prone position. I'm wearing a woodland camo bonnie hat.

    Ken's a good buddy of mine, but unfortunately he doesn't frequent many online forums.

    Neither do we. All we have is a pair of rabbit ears. I'm hoping someone will record it for me.

    A MA liberal anti-gunner immersed in the "gun culture"? Well, considering that everything about the description of the chick indicates someone who emotes and has poor to no critical thinking skills, this may be an utter waste of time. I'm interested in the end result, not the story as she already bores me.

    Edit: Ohio Patriot can you save us the suspense and tell us the end result in a nutshell. I don't have much patience for those reality type shows. Still, very cool that you are in it and that one of the main people is a good friend of yours.

    Wish I could, but I haven't seen the show, either. I simply showed up for the shoot.

    I just talked to my cousin. She said the segment showed me shooting the .50 in prone, and loading the next shot. She said I wasn't wearing a hat. (I thought I had a hat on.)

    So far, I don't like the complete lack of any facts (from studies) that we use to make our point.

    I'd say it wasn't to bad at all, fairly positive overall. BTW when did we start to get all this good publicity. Did anyone else catch the reference to open carry?

    As mentioned in another thread, I'm in it for a few seconds.

    We don't have cable or satellite, so I didn’t see it.

    I just talked to my cousin. She said the segment showed me shooting a .50 BMG rifle in the prone position.
