The host has an EAR RING! not one of those stupid studs from the 80's, but a cartlige hoop at the top of his left ear.:rofl: I dont mean to call into question a mans.... well manliness... but Comeon! Take it out for TV man!:rofl:

Sorry, I just had to share.

YEAH! The old(er) grey haired dude! Looks to be in his mid 50's (??) He has a GOLD HOOP at the top of his left ear!

I was watching the show last night. It was about Full Auto shooting out in TN. He was sitting at an old Vickers Gun, and I could just barely see it. took a closer look, and you can see it in almost every sequence....

I never noticed before, because when he does the shows at Gunsite, he is always wearing muffs.....

:scratch:

Billy - The voices go away as soon as you insert a ring in the upper portion of your right ear. Many of us ignored the voices until we got into our 50's. You're just ahead of your time...

NickA,
Ear rings now are fashion (B#ll S**t), But old school says ring in right ear is due to a limp wrist ;) Tracy



But to be fair, his was in the left ear.

Are you sure it's not a hearing aid?

A man in his 50's should know better!

Nothing looks more ridiculous on a middle aged man than ear rings
and a ponytail. (That's my opinion only. Yours may differ.)
IMO, nothing looks more ridiculous on a man of any age.

Good. So we know the TV man was controlling voices, not a lifestyle choice. At least that's reasonably constructive. He's harmless. Let him be.

Didnt mean to personaly impeach the man,

Just a thought on profesionalism..... He's well dressed, Well groomed, and well spoken.... and has an Earring???? It just dosent jive... If he was some young kid that's coverd in tat's I wouldnt even bat an eye..... but he's not... He's part of my dad's generation....Its just weird:mummy:

Yeah? ... so what's the problem? :confused:

What's "ridiculous" is not the fact that this gentleman wears an earring, but that you would allow something like that to overshadow his professionalism.

Earrings aren't "ridiculous" ... this thread is. :rolleyes:

But thats the point.... His wearing an earing has obviously created a distraction to his profesionalsm..... Its a detriment....because now I will be looking for an earing.... just to see if its there.....

I'm pretty sure it wasnt one of the ear mic's.... it was a gold hoop through the cartalige at the top of his left ear.... those mic's are usualy flesh colored or clear.....

So he wears an earing.... I realy dont care... if he bats for the other team... I realy dont care (Please, lets not get into that one today). Its just a thought about how unprofesional atire/ behavior can detract from one's credability....

If you had a store.... dosent matter what you sold.... would you allow one of your people who ran the counter to have tattoo's on their necks? If you were running an upscale biz... probably not.... If you were running a Skate shop... Tatoo parlor... probably would, because it fitts with the clientel and the merchandise..... Its all about fittig the image to the clientell....

I would bet that 90+% of people who watch that show are
1) Male
2) Middle class or higher
3) consider themselves "respectable"

Having an EarRing just dosent fit wth the demographics....

Just a thought......

It's only a distraction for those who judge others based on appearance IMO.

Some of you guys need to do some critical self-examination. Michael Bane does a lot for gunowners, earring or not. While you are comfortably sitting in front of the tv soaking up some cold beer, he is fighting the good fight in places that matter.

The kind of blind, irrational, hypocritical nonsense displayed here is what gives gunowners such a bad image. :mad:
