    Lock ’n Load treats Wayne and many fellow customers as curiosities, and occasionally smacks of condescension. (The “Amazing Grace’’ sequence, in particular, crosses a line.) But the series also takes pains to avoid making judgments, and offers a parade of gun owners so vast that we end up with a broad view.
  2. NRA enthusiasts might be the target audience for this reality show about a Colorado gun shop, but Lock manages to have mainstream appeal, thanks to its focus on the store's quirky customers (a shank-holding old lady, a gun-loving pastor, etc.).

    I am a professional consultant who currently does not own a gun. After watching Lock & Load I went target shooting and found I really I am a professional consultant who currently does not own a gun. After watching Lock & Load I went target shooting and found I really shooting & am good at it. I noww want to take gun owner safety class & purchase my own firearm. Bad guys will always find a way of obtaining a gun through illegal means..... Bad guys do not like going into homes where people have guns. They are on a power trip looking for vulnerable people.
